In Wake County, Grant Hayes was convicted of murdering his ex-girlfriend, Laura Ackerson, to resolve a custody dispute they were having. At the conclusion of the trial in which Mr. Hayes attempted to place the blame on his wife Amanda Hayes, the District Attorney's office added the charge of Accessory After the Fact to the list of charges against Ms. Hayes.
Accessory after the fact is a serious felony charge that can carry serious and severe punishments.

Sometimes free advice is good, sometimes free advice is bad. Some advice is bad regardless of the cost.

Do’s and Don’ts before you Separate from your Spouse During a Divorce
 
We present some advice to help when you are ready to separate from your spouse:
 
Do’s:
Do consult an experienced and competent family law attorney to determine how best to handle your particular situation. Doing things right at the outset can save you headaches and heartaches later. Be sure you find an attorney who you are comfortable with.
 
Do consider the impact of your activities on your case and on your future. This is one of the most important services and pieces of advice a lawyer should provide for you.
 
Do find out how to protect your assets.
 
Do follow your attorney’s advice. Your case will go much smoother if you can trust your attorney and your attorney can trust that the advice they are giving you is being followed. Surprises in court are not a good thing.
 
Do figure out your financial arrangements for the next few months. Having a plan and having some extra savings will make the initial period much less stressful.
 
Don’ts:
Don’t ignore a complaint.  If you are being sued for divorce, take action.  Get a lawyer, go to your court dates; otherwise you could lose in a number of situations,
 
Don’t ignore time sensitive parts of the process. Get paperwork to your lawyer and the court on time, be prompt for meetings and don’t skip important appearances in the courts.
 
Don’t miss filing deadlines on paperwork.
 
Don’t rely on third hand advice about how someone else’s divorce was handled. Your life, your children and your case is not theirs. Each case is different, regardless of what the internet says.
 
These are a few of the ideas presented in the article on our website.  See http://www.mcneil-law.com/?p=1964 for the full text.

Many times the hardest cases to win aren't the cases where one parent is "evil" and the other parent is "wonderful". The hardest cases are often the cases in which both parents are perfectly wonderful people who are no longer in a relationship but can't decide on what child custody schedule is best for their child.

If you or your spouse are contemplating a divorce, the actual process of obtaining a divorce in North Carolina is easy once the key elements occur. However there are certain circumstances in which you need to consult with an attorney prior to the divorce happening.

The Mystery of Property Division

What is Property Division?
Property division, or who retains possession of the house, furnishings, retirement accounts, cars, and more, can be a daunting part of divorce and one which is difficult to fully understand.  First one must understand what is equitable distribution. This refers to whatever has been shared in the marriage must be divided up fairly between the two parties.

The two people divorcing can determine what this division will be and include these terms in the separation agreement. If both parties cannot work out an arrangement, they can ask that a judge determine the division.

The division of property requires that if a shared asset goes to one party, the other party must be compensated for that asset.
Not all property is divided. Only the property considered marital property is divided. Other property—separate property—is not divided. Separate property includes property acquired before entering the marriage, inherited property, and property acquired as a gift from someone other than the spouse.

My primary choice for recommendation on Family Law and Mediation. I have known them for years and they are one of the key places that understands and is effective with Father issues. I learned about them when I was helping with the Raleigh Men's Center years ago. I would also recommend them to a woman and Mother as well. Thanks for doing such a good job with the clients I have recommended to you they always come back and thank me.
A great place to relax and still feel like you're in the middle of the hustle and bustle. We've always enjoyed eating here and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. And for late evenings, I can pick take-out, which means good food without the hustle and bustle. And the take out is just a great as eating in.
