Raleigh Divorce & Family Attorneys

Family law is a cornerstone at Tharrington Smith. Its lasting importance in our practice reflects our passion to apply our expertise to each family law situation, whether it is resolved through negotiation of a separation agreement, divorce mediation, collaborative divorce, divorce arbitration or family litigation through the courts.  At the heart of our family law practice is our understanding of the extraordinary personal crisis that divorce brings to spouses, children and extended family members. We bring to every client strength, knowledge, experience, and sensitivity.

The family law attorneys at Tharrington Smith are state and national leaders in the field. Many of our lawyers are certified by the North Carolina State Bar as family law specialists and family financial mediators. The majority of our Family Law attorneys have been selected to North Carolina Super Lawyers* or Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars; and are included in Best Lawyers® in America; three are former judges; three have headed the statewide family law section of the North Carolina Bar Association, and three are Fellows in the selective American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.


The discussions of the topics in this section are meant only as general introductions to some of the issues that you will face in this area of family law.  They are not meant to be, and cannot be, exhaustive discussions of each area of the law.  Each divorce situation has some similarities, but each is different in many ways.  It is critical that you receive specific advice about your individual situation.  The most important advice you will receive in dealing with your divorce is to consult an attorney.
