Separation Agreement Attorney in Greensboro
Arthur & Kirkman • Attorneys at Law
If you are considering separation or if you are already separated, it is important you consult with a Top-Rated Greensboro divorce lawyer and family law attorney as soon as possible to protect your best interests. Our law firm, Arthur & Kirkman, has been a leader in North Carolina family law for many years. We have helped thousands of men and women facing separation from their spouse.
North Carolina law does not require divorcing couples to have a separation agreement. In North Carolina, a couple becomes separated when the parties have come to live separate and apart (i.e. different physical addresses) with no intent to resume the marital relationship. Generally, the couple must have lived separate and apart for one year prior to the Court entering a divorce decree. Having a separation agreement does not make it easier or more difficult to obtain a divorce decree.
However, a separation agreement is a great tool to resolve many of the issues that arise when parties are seeking a divorce. Additionally, having a separation agreement can save the parties a significant amount of money by resolving much of the issues parties spend litigating. A couple can use a separation agreement to resolve all of their outstanding issues, including child custody and support, marital property division, and spousal support or alimony. A separation agreement can also resolve some of the parties’ issues while leaving other issues pending.
