North Carolina Board-Certified Family Law Specialist
Serving Clients in Craven, Carteret and Pamlico Counties
Going through a divorce can trigger a broad range of legal and emotional concerns. At the law firm of attorney J. Randal Hunter, we bring more than 30 years of experience to assist clients with all areas of divorce. We focus on delivering excellent legal representation, while remaining attentive to your emotional needs.
Our firm focuses exclusively on family law matters, and Mr. Hunter is certified as a legal specialist in family law by the North Carolina State Bar Board of Legal Specialization. We regularly handle complex areas of divorce, including:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Property distribution
- High net worth divorces
- Military divorces
- Separation agreements
Mediation allows divorcing spouses an opportunity to resolve their disputes without court intervention. In many instances, mediation or other alternative dispute resolution methods limit the emotional and financial burdens involved in divorce. Mr. Hunter mediates cases and also represents his clients in mediations.
Not every case can be resolved through mediation or other alternative dispute resolution methods. At our law firm, we prepare every case for trial, even if we hope it can be resolved through mediation. If mediation will not resolve your family law matter, we provide vigorous and skilled representation in the courtroom.
Child custody issues are especially complicated when one or both parents are members of the military. We have the experience and the sensitivity to skillfully devise custody arrangements for members of the military. We also assist clients in dividing up retirement and pension plans in accordance with the federal law.
Divorce is a matter of state law, not military law. If you are going through a divorce, it is important to have an experienced lawyer with knowledge of North Carolina family law and experience working with servicemen and women. Our firm has the experience and knowledge to help you.
Divorce requires a one year separation period. We encourage couples who are separated to create separation agreements as soon as possible. Separation agreements can determine custody plans and financial arrangements.
When circumstances change, sometimes custody or support arrangements are no longer realistic. If that happens, we help clients seek a modification of child custody, support or alimony.
