Divorce is common throughout the United States, although the divorce rate has declined over the past several years. Therefore, divorce is a very active practice area for family law and divorce attorneys in the Piedmont Triad area. An absolute divorce can occur in North Carolina once a married couple has lived apart for a period of 12 months. Our family law attorneys can help you every step of the way.

The economic, emotional, and mental consequences of a divorce can be difficult to deal with. It is important to have an attorney who can take a step back and make recommendations as to what is in your best interests. Having a fresh perspective from an outsider can be extremely useful in handling such a personal matter.

A divorce is considered a major life event. The issues that come along with the decision to divorce include the division of property and custody decisions. Who gets the house? Who gets what car? Even the family pet can be a point of negotiation between couples. Having an experienced divorce lawyer on your side can help you work through these issues.

Another issue that often comes up is spousal support. When one spouse earns significantly more than the other, there are often concerns on both sides about the issue of spousal support. We can help you address these concerns and work out details that help you obtain the best outcome.

Most people seeking a divorce do not have a premarital agreement. If you have a premarital agreement, it can be a helpful tool to simplify your divorce process because many of the decisions were made in advance. Another tool that is available is a postnuptial agreement. We are experienced in both types of agreements. Click here to learn more.

In North Carolina, research has shown that out of every 1,000 people over the age of 15, 9.32-10.97 percent are divorced. This means that roughly 10% of our state's population is currently divorced. Of those 10%, many Guilford County residents seek out the advice and counsel of an experienced divorce attorney to make sure that their rights are competently represented.

One of the biggest fears that people have when going through a divorce are that their spouse will get everything that they have worked so hard to earn. Another common fear is that they will not get to maintain a relationship with their children.

If you have any situation in your life that is important enough for you to seek out the advice of an attorney, I urge you to contact Woodruff Law Firm. Once you walk in the door, you are greeted with a kind, caring spirit from a professional staff member who will direct you to your appointment contact in a very timely manner.

They have assisted me on several occasions and it still amazes me how they actually took my case so personally. I could sense the compassion in every aspect. Their balance between professionalism and compassion far exceeded my expectations. There was never a call, email, or other that wasn't handled with complete sincerity. I felt they were 100% fair on their fees and made everything understandable at the time of the initial consultation in order to avoid "hidden surprises later."

When it comes to my family's legal matters, I wouldn't consider choosing anyone but the wonderful, professional folks at Woodruff Law Firm. They hold a special place in our hearts.
