Mooresville Family Law Attorney

A family separation is often one of the hardest emotional experiences of someone’s life. That is why we do everything we can to listen to a person’s concerns and try to provide the best options to help them move forward in a healthy way. The legal process can cause much greater emotional wounds. The attorneys at Whitfield & Mock strive to achieve their client’s goals while minimizing the damage of a legal separation process. Many clients who understand the value of closure appreciate sound legal advice and negotiations that often lead to resolutions of their cases either out of court or early into the legal separation process.

Since a family separation has such inherent emotional damage, we strive to first resolve a separation/divorce case through mediation or collaborative law negotiations. Clients can save a great amount of legal fees and can avoid the emotional toll of a contested court case by resolving their separation out of court. Often our attorneys help our clients achieve an amicable resolution to their separation, custody, support and property distribution issues with a separation agreement and a Consent Order. In addition many cases are resolved through collaborative negotiations and out of court mediations. However, when resolution is impossible, the attorneys at Whitfield & Mock, PLLC have extensive courtroom experience in divorce cases.

When you face a difficult family law issue such as a divorce, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side. If you would like to speak with one of our divorce attorneys, call our firm at (704) 663-5350 or toll free at 888-340-3254. You may also contact us online and someone will be in touch with you promptly.
  • Child custody and child support: We consider the best interests of the children and our client's concerns when advocating in a child custody and child support case. Our firm believes that it is of paramount importance to demonstrate the unique bond that our clients share with their respective children. Child support cases are decided based on the parties' respective gross incomes and are calculated pursuant to North Carolina Child Support Guidelines.
  • Marital property division: In North Carolina, marital property, assets and debt undergo equitable distribution. Our firm is highly skilled at identifying marital property, valuing the property and advocating that it is distributed in an equitable manner.
  • Alimony and spousal support: Post-separation spousal support is awarded on a case-by-case basis and is considered a form of temporary alimony. Alimony is a permanent claim; however, the amount of alimony ordered and the potential duration of payments are based on many different factors. These factors include marital misconduct, the length of the marriage, marital standard of living and earning capacity. Payments are usually agreed upon or ordered in monthly installments.
  • Mediation: There is a recent movement toward resolving as many disputes as possible in advance of going before a family law judge. As a certified mediator, J. Franklin Mock can assist as either your attorney through mediations or as a neutral third-party mediator, guiding parties to resolutions of their divorce cases.
Additionally, our lawyers provide exceptional representation and guidance to clients struggling through issues related to domestic violence or the drafting of separation agreements. Contact us today to schedule a confidential consultation with a skilled attorney.
