Myers Law Firm: Dedicated to Protecting Your Rights

If you are considering divorce or are separated and ready to begin the divorce process — or if you are already involved in a court action — then you may be facing some difficult choices, but you don’t have to face them by yourself. Myers Law Firm is ready to walk with you every step of the way, and we can provide the guidance and counsel you need to face the stressful prospect of a family law case with confidence.

At Myers Law Firm, we understand that the prospects of separation and divorce can seem daunting, even if they are necessary steps toward a promising new life. You may be worried about things like:

  • The well-being of your children
  • Keeping your home
  • The validity of a prenuptial agreement
  • Your financial situation after the marriage ends
  • How family property will be divided

You may also wonder whether you can move out of state with your children, even if the other parent remains in North Carolina. Finally, you may be concerned for your personal safety or that of your children, leading you to wonder how issues such as adultery or domestic violence can affect your rights and legal options.

Here to Help Families in North Carolina

Thanks to our years of family law experience, the attorneys at Myers Law Firm can address all of these concerns and more for you. We represent clients in family law matters that include:

  • Divorce, both contested and uncontested
  • Child custody, both physical and legal
  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Property division
  • Modifications of existing orders regarding custody, child support, or alimony
  • Separation agreements
  • Prenuptial agreements

In divorces and related proceedings, a negotiated agreement that both spouses can live with is often the best way to serve the interests of all parties. Such agreements can remain private between the spouses or can be converted into a court order based on their wishes.

Myers Law Firm has experience negotiating these types of agreements, and we approach each family law case with compassion and caring as well as a tenacious commitment to protecting our clients’ rights.

Aiding Victims of Domestic Violence

Under North Carolina law, a person commits domestic violence when they engage in one or more of the following acts against a person with whom they share a personal relationship or against such a person’s minor child:

  • Intentionally causing or attempting bodily injury
  • Placing a victim or a member of the victim’s family or household in fear of imminent, serious bodily injury
  • Committing sexual offenses such as rape
  • Placing a victim in fear of continued harassment, causing them substantial emotional distress
  • Engaging in conduct that torments, terrorizes, or terrifies a victim

Unfortunately, domestic violence is one of the most underreported crimes. Perpetrators of domestic abuse often work to isolate victims physically, emotionally, and financially, cutting them off from potential help and escape.

If you’ve been the victim of domestic violence, it’s very important to get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible so you can protect yourself, your children, and your loved ones from further harm. Our attorneys have experience helping victims of domestic violence in Mecklenburg County, and we can listen to your story, explain your rights, and discuss your legal options, including the option to file for an injunction that can put a stop to abuse immediately.
