Separation and Divorce

For most people, separation and divorce are overwhelming. The process can involve both emotional distress and financial burden. Aside from the actual costs of separating a household, there is often fear and anxiety associated with change and uncertainty of things to come. Confusion and stress generated just from the itemizing and splitting of personal belongings and marital assets can add to the mental strain. Monty Beck understands these concerns and emotions, and will help you transform a most difficult time in your life into a quest for a more hopeful future.

There are many general misconceptions about how the courts in North Carolina handle the process of separation and divorce. There are simply too many couples, all with individually unique circumstances, for Courts to be able to create rules that fit every situation. What North Carolina has done is create a set of very standardized guidelines, treating marital disputes from a quite business-like perspective. You and your family deserve resolutions that consider your circumstances and goals. We can help ensure your family does not fall victim to the Court’s one-size-fits-all approach.

Mediation, negotiation and creative problem-solving are cornerstones of lasting resolutions.

The terms of your separation, and ultimately your divorce, will include numerous opportunities for you to craft agreements that fit your needs. Indeed, many studies have shown that agreements made for the greater good of your family’s future are more stable than court imposed rulings. Because of this recognition, the days of accusation and punishment for wrong-doing in marriages are almost a thing of the past. Courts require parties to agree to as many of the issues of finalizing a marriage as are possible, leaving the court to decide only those things the parties cannot.

Still, it is essential that you have the advice and leadership of an experienced family law attorney to ensure all the elements of your divorce are appropriately considered. Monty is a North Carolina Specialist in Family Law. He can help your family create long lasting agreements that provide outcomes that meet your family’s goals. For those matters that cannot be resolved, Monty Beck is an aggressive, experienced trial lawyer. If you are considering divorce in Western North Carolina, Monty can help you find the right path to your new future.
