Raleigh Divorce Legal Aid & Pro Bono Services

If a person wishes to terminate his or her marriage, he or she may file for a divorce. In a divorce proceeding, the court will terminate the marriage and determine the rights and responsibilities of the divorcing parties regarding child custody, child visitation, child support and spousal support. Depending on where you reside and where your assets are, the division of property can be a very simple or very complex process. Disputes often arise during this phase of a divorce if the two parties disagree as to who should receive which assets or property. Finding a divorce lawyer who is experienced and reliable can reduce your stress and help you make the best choices possible. A good divorce lawyer should be a problem solver who is skilled at negotiation and possesses a solid trial background. If both parties are open to alternative dispute resolution, such as arbitration or mediation, finding a lawyer experienced in collaborative divorce or divorce mediation would be beneficial. Divorce lawyers also handle child custody issues, including multi-state and international child custody situations. Some divorce lawyers may be certified by their states as being family law specialists. Certification often requires that a lawyer meet certain experience and educational criteria. Legal Custody: A parent with legal custody has the right to decide on the child’s upbringing, education, and medical care. A court may grant legal custody to one parent or both parents. Separate Property: Property acquired before marriage or during the marriage as a gift or inheritance, or bought during marriage with separate property.

Raleigh Divorce Law Firm

Prior to joining the firm, Blake worked at the North Carolina Department of Justice’s Division of Child Development and Early Education as an intern attorney under the guidance of the Division’s Assistant Attorney Generals. Since joining the Firm, he has assisted clients with various family law issues including divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, equitable distribution, domestic violence and negotiation of separation agreements. Blake has also assisted clients during the mediation process and uses that experience to help his clients attempt to resolve their family law issues with minimal conflict. Blake made the decision to become a family law attorney early in law school after taking several advanced family law courses and finding that family law offered a unique opportunity to help others navigate through one of the most difficult and stressful times of their lives. Blake was born in Landstuhl, Germany as the son of a United States Army officer stationed overseas. During his time as a military dependent, he lived in ten different states and countries before his arrival here in Raleigh, North Carolina. Blake graduated from Auburn University with a B.A. in Journalism, where he was the Sports Editor of the university’s newspaper. He went on to attend and graduate from Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, Florida. Blake believes his early exposure to a variety of cultures as well as his ability to effectively communicate and forge new relationships has helped him to better understand his clients and the personal issues with which they require legal guidance. Blake practices primarily in Wake County but also accepts cases in Durham, Johnston, Cumberland, Orange, Lee, Harnett, Franklin and Granville Counties to assist clients with their family law matters.
