Family law involves legal issues pertaining to families, including married couples, parents, and children.

Our Craven County law firm works to provide counsel for every aspect of family law. Whether simple divorce, separation agreements, child custody, or complex high net worth divorce cases, our legal team has the expertise to advocate successfully for you.
Simple or Absolute Divorce
Simple divorce, also called absolute divorce, is an uncontested divorce. As the name implies, this type of divorce is usually a simple process that can be completed within 60 days without either party needing to go to court.
Our legal team is knowledgeable and experienced in North Carolina child custody law, whether you are desiring to gain child support or opposing a request for child support. We will protect your rights as a parent.
Child Custody Modification
If your circumstances change (for example, employment status or relocation), we can help you in filing for child custody modification.
In arriving at child support, our attorneys take all the variables into consideration like health insurance, income, and custody arrangements so that you can get an accurate and fair amount in child support.
Collaborative Family Law
Our legal team’s experience in collaborative family law sets an environment where you and your partner can separate amicably by agreeing to terms and negotiating mutually beneficial solutions. This process avoids lengthy adversarial court cases with judges decreeing settlements.
Division of Pensions, 401(K)s, and Retirement
Retirement accounts are part of the marital estate that must be divided during a divorce. Our attorneys can assist you in protecting your future through our division of pensions, 401(K)s, and retirement services.
When changing custody and family visitation or requesting supervision, our team of attorneys can assist you in setting up a visitation schedule that works best for you while protecting your rights and maintaining a strong bond with your child.
There are times when both parents are deemed unfit or unsuitable to have custody of their child. When this situation occurs, a third party such as a grandparent, aunt, or uncle may be granted custody. Given the complicated nature of grandparents’ rights, our legal team can help you secure custody if a child in your family is in an unsafe situation.
High Net Worth Divorce
If you and your spouse have a high net worth divorce where there is a business you own together, jointly owned property, multiple bank accounts, or investment accounts, our family law attorneys can work with you in protecting your interests.

Whether you are seeking to receive alimony or you are opposing it, our legal team will advocate for your financial needs.
During the property distribution part of your divorce, we will assist you in fighting for your rightful share. Our experienced family law attorneys will make the court aware of all the factors that can affect equitable distribution.
The law in North Carolina requires that a couple reside separately for one year prior to divorcing. We will help you protect yourself and your parental rights with a separation agreement that looks after your interests.
My ex decided he wanted to move to a different state and take our kids with him, even though we had joint custody. I was terrified I was going to lose my kids! A friend of mine went to Irons & Irons for her divorce so I went to them for help. My attorney was incredible - he was reassuring, patient, and anytime I had a question, I could call and he'd be right there to answer. In court, he fought for me to keep my kids from leaving the state, and we got a child custody modification that gave me primary custody and my ex got visitation where he had to come back to the state to see them. I was thrilled with the outcome!
