Taking Your Divorce to Court

Sometimes it is necessary to bring or defend a lawsuit in court. In those cases, if it’s appropriate, we will continue to negotiate in hopes of avoiding further expensive litigation, while also aggressively pursuing our objectives, whether it be to retain possession of the home, safeguard retirement assets, share child custody on an equal basis, or protect a stream of income. As a litigator with lots of experience, I am a strong and strategic advocate in the courtroom.  In each case, I prepare thoroughly and advocate tenaciously for my clients.

Should I Go to court?

Divorce Lawyer | Durham | Judy Whisnant Attorney At Law, PCDivorcing couples often fare better when working together to find a solution, especially when children are involved. But solving things through collaborative law or mediation isn’t always possible. If you are dealing with someone who tends to use intimidation or bullying, traditional divorce court can be the only option that allows your voice to be heard.  With some people, it’s impossible to talk reasonably and reach an agreement that is in your interests. By working together, we can determine the best course of action.
