Domestic Law/Appeals

DOMESTIC LAW

Moen Legal Counsel makes it a priority to remember that family matters involve people, not just case numbers.  Domestic Law includes Child Support, Child Custody, Alimony, Equitable Distribution, Domestic Violence, Divorce, and Adoption. No two families are alike and no two solutions are alike. We pride ourselves in crafting solutions to protect your rights and the rights of your children. The process to reach solutions can be frustrating, long, and can lead to circumstances that take a long time to change. With the right people in your corner, the process can be made a little easier with a significantly better result.
We strive to reach agreements outside the courtroom, but will litigate if no agreement can be reached.

 

 

APPEALS

 

Appealing orders in family law cases requires quick action once an order is entered by a trial court.  The North Carolina Court of Appeals and Supreme Court review the trial court’s order to ensure the District Court Judge did not abuse their discretion or had sufficient evidence to make the decision that is set forth in the Order.  When deciding to appeal an order to a higher court in North Carolina you should seek the advice of counsel to determine if the appeal is warranted and that stringent deadlines are met.

The North Carolina Court of Appeals operate under the North Carolina Rules of Appellate Procedure which is different than lower courts in North Carolina.  Because of this difference, experience with the appeal process will ensure that the chances of your appeal being dismissed are minimized.

Here at Moen Legal Counsel we pride ourselves on our experience at the appellate level and dedicate part of our practice exclusively to family law appeals.  If you desire to schedule a consultation with our office to discuss your potential appeal, please call our office and mention that the consultation is for an appeal.
