Five reasons you need a North Carolina divorce attorney:

A divorce is both an ending and a beginning. It’s the end of a marriage you thought would last a lifetime, and the beginning of your new life as a single person, and perhaps as a single parent. Even if your divorce is amicable, undergoing such a significant life change can be stressful and scary.

Divorce can also be complicated if you have property and debts to divide, if you or your spouse wants alimony, or if you have to work out custody or visitation agreements regarding your children. That’s why you should have the help of a skilled and dedicated Johnston County divorce lawyer to advocate for your interests.

Jonathan Breeden has more than 15 years of experience fighting for the rights and interests of people who are ending their marriages and are in need of the help of a good North Carolina divorce attorney. He has represented people going through divorces in Clayton, Garner, Benson, and Smithfield, as well as other towns near Raleigh in Harnett and Wake counties. Jonathan’s approach blends compassion and sensitivity to your needs with aggressive advocacy for your rights. When you hire Jonathan, he will dig in and fight to get you a fair result as you move through your divorce proceeding and issues such as property division and alimony.

01

Lawyers know the law.

This might seem like an obvious statement, but there’s a reason why lawyers undergo extensive education and training and must pass a rigorous bar exam in order to practice. Even an apparently simple divorce can involve complexities and nuances that may not be obvious to a layperson, but will be recognized by an experienced divorce lawyer.

02

Your spouse may have hired a lawyer.

If your spouse has representation and you don’t, you may find yourself at a distinct disadvantage and obtain a less than fair outcome even if your divorce is amicable. A lawyer knows all of the factors involved in dividing assets, determining alimony, and other issues related to a divorce and can protect your interests.

03

You have assets to divide.

A divorce lawyer can help ensure that marital assets are distributed fairly, that assets aren’t hidden or inappropriately transferred to prevent their distribution, and that your non-marital assets are protected. An experienced lawyer can be especially important if you own a business, have property holdings outside of your marital home, or have investments.

Child custody

When you’re a parent, your children are the center of your world. You’ll do anything to ensure that they’re healthy, happy, and safe.

If you’re going through a divorce or otherwise negotiating custody with your children’s other parent, you may be worried about the effect that a custody arrangement may have on your children or whether you’ll get to see them.

Jonathan Breeden understands what you’re going through and is dedicated to helping you get the best possible outcome for you and your children. He has significant experience negotiating custody agreements and filing custody complaints on behalf of parents in Harnett County, Johnston County and Wake County.

For a North Carolina custody attorney who will fight for the best interests of you and your children as you decide on , call Breeden Law Office today at to learn what Jonathan Breeden can do for you.

Primary custody

Primary Custody

A parent with primary custody is the parent with whom the child lives full-time.

Secondary custody

Secondary Custody

A parent with secondary custody has what is known elsewhere as visitation rights to the child.

Joint Custody

Joint Custody

When parents share joint custody, the child spends equal time with both parents.

Child Support

Child support can be an emotionally complicated issue for parents who share children but do not live together, whether because of a divorce or because the parents never married at all.

Child support is intended to help with the many expenses involved in raising a child, such as the costs of housing, food, clothes, transportation, school supplies, extracurricular activities, and doctor visits.

Whether you’re asking for child support — or being asked to pay — it’s important to understand your rights as a parent, and to have an experienced North Carolina child support lawyer looking out for the best interests of you and your child.

Since 2000, Jonathan Breeden has been a tenacious advocate for people needing help with child support matters in Wake County, including in Raleigh and Willow Spring, and surrounding suburbs in Johnston and Harnett counties. Jonathan is a skilled negotiator who can represent your best interests when coming to an agreement over child support, and a tough trial lawyer who can fight for you if your child support matter goes to court.

Call Breeden Law Office today to schedule your appointment with a talented Raleigh child support lawyer who will work passionately to get you the best possible outcome for your case.

I would highly recommend Jonathan Breeden. He's a straight shooter, professional, and really knows his stuff. He was able to take a very complex process (divorce) and break it down in terms that I could understand and process. This allowed me to have confidence, make informed decisions and ultimately reach a favorable outcome.
