Legal Services Offered by Our New Bern Divorce Attorneys

Every divorce is unique because every relationship is different from another. We recognize this and work with each individual situation by offering a variety of legal services and areas of expertise in order to provide a comprehensive representation that ensures you have the very best outcome. Our services include:

Absolute, or “Simple Divorce”

An “absolute divorce” is commonly known as a simple divorce. As the name implies, a simple divorce is uncontested and can often be accomplished quickly by our divorce lawyers without either party having to enter a courtroom. Even though it is called a simple divorce, there are still many issues that may require legal guidance or the assistance of an attorney. We believe it’s important for you to understand how the legal process works regarding a simple divorce before you file for the divorce. We work with you every step of the way to ensure that you are taken care of in protecting yourself and your family

Collaborative Divorce

A collaborative divorce is a congenial alternative to a contested or litigious divorce. With a collaborative divorce, attorneys guide both parties in working out the terms of the divorce on their own without the need to have a judge or require a trial.  Whereas a typical divorce is adversarial in nature, a collaborative divorce takes a more amicable approach, allowing a couple to end their marriage with a mutually respectful attitude. Our attorneys guide you through the process with the intent of achieving an agreed-upon resolution.

High Net Worth Divorce

Having an experienced New Bern divorce attorney for a high net worth divorce is a necessity. A divorce where a couple has complex marital assets, including businesses that are shared, jointly owned real estate, and multiple investments and bank accounts, requires a legal representative who has expertise in dealing with complicated financial situations. This type of divorce can have many moving parts that may be specialized and difficult to disentangle. Only a lawyer who has experience with high net worth marriage dissolutions can be prepared for problematic issues along the way because they’ve seen it before.

Division of Pensions and Retirement Accounts

A common misconception is that retirement accounts, such as 401(k)s and pensions, belong only to one spouse and are separate property in a divorce. In most cases, these funds are part of the marital assets and are subject to division. Our divorce attorneys know that you’ve worked hard in accumulating these assets to ensure a secure future, and we will help you protect them with our services and expertise related to dividing retirement accounts and pensions in your divorce.

Post Separation Support & Alimony

Our team of New Bern divorce attorneys has been successful in finding solutions as related to post-separation support and alimony after a divorce. We have the knowledge and dedication necessary to advocate for you regarding spousal support and will implement a personalized strategy to get a more favorable outcome on your behalf, regardless of whether you are seeking or opposing it.

Property Distribution

While you were married, you and your spouse built an estate together, possibly including a house, vehicles, and savings. In the dissolution of your marriage, dividing these assets can be points of contention. We know the importance of protecting what is rightfully yours and ensuring you receive your fair share of the property accumulated in the marriage. Our experienced divorce lawyers will strive for equitable and fair property division so you can begin a new future with confidence. 

Separation Agreements

In order to divorce in North Carolina, a couple must live separately for 12 consecutive months.  While it isn’t necessary to file separation paperwork, it is important to keep proof of when you separated. During this period, it is also important to safeguard your assets and arrive at agreements related to property custody of children. Our divorce attorneys can help you protect yourself, your belongings, and your family during this period by creating and negotiating a separation agreement

    Leslie Stratton

  • My experience with attorney, Gib Irons, was excellent. I always felt that my case was very important to him. He always responded quickly to my messages. When my spouse was not prompt about responding, he was quick to intervene. He made a very stressful situation less so for me. I thought he was very well versed in divorce law and had sound advice to give me. He also seems to really enjoy his work and has a positive can-do attitude. Very professional and well worth the money I spent. I am a believer in outsourcing to an experienced professional.
