The following services are offered at Leger Law:

Adoptions are the legal process by which an adult becomes the parent of a minor child or another adult.

Determining child custody can be the most challenging part of a divorce or separation. We provide dedicated and sensitive support throughout this difficult time. We’ll help you navigate physical and legal custody decisions, as well as visitation arrangements.

When a parent is ordered to pay child support, there may come a time when they need to seek a modification due to significant changes in circumstances. Our goal is to achieve a fair child support arrangement that prioritizes the best interests of the children involved.

Our goal is to make the divorce process as simple and painless as possible. Our experienced attorneys will guide you through every step, keeping you informed and empowered to rebuild your life after the divorce. We also provide assistance with post-separation support and alimony matters.

We understand that divorce can be overwhelming and uncertain. That’s why we offer detailed consultations to explain the entire divorce process and associated events. Our objective is to help you understand where you currently stand, and help you plan for your future.

Both adults and minor children have the ability to change their legal name in North Carolina. The name change process generally involves filing a case with Special Proceedings at the Clerk of Court’s office in the county of residence.

Post-separation support refers to the financial support received before the divorce is finalized, while alimony is the support provided after a divorce judgment. Eligibility for post-separation support or alimony is determined based on various factors.
