Family Law and Divorce Attorney


We Can Assist With the Numerous Legal and Technical Requirements

Divorce is one of the most common legal issues in the country, and unfortunately one of the most difficult. Not only is it emotionally challenging, but there are many legal and technical requirements when dissolving a marriage. When going through a divorce, choosing the right lawyer who can guide you through this confusing process can be one of the most important decisions you make. Most people do not prepare for divorces and quickly become overwhelmed when they realize all the implications involved in divorce action.

Our family law lawyers understand the gravity of a divorce proceeding and always pursue the best possible outcome, whether through the collaborative process or litigating in court. A common area of dispute when going through divorce is determining post-separation support, alimony, and equitable distribution. When a person has a claim for post-separation support or alimony, that right will be terminated permanently unless a claim is initiated before the divorce judgment. Spouses must also assert their right to the equitable distribution of marital property before the judgment, or the claim will be lost forever.

Divorce can also have major consequences on many other areas including child support, child custody, alimony, post-separation support, insurance, and property division. It is therefore important to be represented by a firm that can also deal with even these secondary legal concerns. At Maginnis Law, PLLC our divorce law attorneys understand the far-reaching impact beyond just divorce that can significantly impact the post-divorce realities.

As a small firm, the attorneys of Maginnis Law, PLLC are able to give personalized care to the individualized needs of each case. We regularly represent clients throughout the Triangle, including Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary, Apex, Knightdale, Morrisville, and Garner.

If you are going through a divorce or separation and have questions about its effect on alimony, post-separation support, or equitable distribution, contact Wake County Family Lawyer Karl Gwaltney directly at 919.960.1545 or send a confidential email inquiry using our contact page.
