“I was privileged to be D. Melissa Averett’s Program Manager. She is incredibly effective for her clients as well as for the judicial systems of Orange, Chatham, and the other counties she practices in. I highly recommended Attorney Averett. Justice is blind but Attorney Averett isn’t. She is sharp and so is her staff. The other side never knows what hit them. You are lucky beyond belief if Attorney Averett will take your case.”Melissa M.

DIVORCE IS A PROCESS
Ending a marriage normally begins with the decision to separate. The process includes making decisions involving:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Property division or equitable distribution
These decisions can be easy or complex, depending on the parties involved and whether there are disputes that must be resolved.
The word “divorce” only applies to the actual dissolution of the marriage. Most of the details must be decided prior to the actual divorce decree being issued. In fact, if you are seeking alimony or property division, you have to file those claims before the divorce order is granted or you may lose your right to do so. The divorce attorneys at Averett Family Law are here to help you understand the divorce process and work with you to achieve a positive outcome.
