Wake Forest Mediation, Family Law, and Appeals
Divorce and Family Mediation
Through mediation, we can help you and your spouse settle your financial affairs privately and plan for your new lives. This includes dealing with how to separate, what to do with the marital residence, interim and longer-term spousal support, and how to value and divide assets and liabilities. If you have children, we can help you develop a workable parenting plan that will resolve issues of child support and custody.
If you have been separated for more than one year, we can help you obtain an absolute divorce for a flat fee. In many cases, you will not have to go to court.
We prepare binding, durable, and thoughtfully-drafted agreements, including premarital (sometimes called prenuptial) agreements, parenting agreements, separation agreements, and property settlements. In all of these, we seek not only to resolve current issues between the parties, but also to prevent problems from occurring down the road. Many agreements can be prepared for a flat fee negotiated in advance.
We represent appellants and appellees in litigation in the North Carolina Court of Appeals and Supreme Court and federal appellate courts. Our areas of expertise include criminal appeals and appeals from judgments and orders entered in family and juvenile courts.
Facilitation and Training
Within families, workplaces, churches, and schools, we teach nonviolent communication skills and conflict resolution techniques. We develop peer mediation programs. Contact us if you'd like to learn about our current program offerings and upcoming seminars.
We mediate disputes between business owners and employees and customers to minimize the risk of costly litigation. We represent businesses in pre-litigation mediation and court-ordered mediated settlement conferences. We draft and review partnership and operating agreements, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, noncompete and non-solicitation agreements, employment agreements, policy manuals and handbooks, leases, and other contracts.
