No one ever wants to go through divorce. But for many couples in North Carolina, this is the only solution after years of fighting and unhappiness. Just because a marriage is dissolving, however, doesn't mean a couple has to go through traditional divorce proceedings in court. In fact, mediation can offer a better experience if couples are willing to take on the challenge.
No one ever goes into marriage thinking one day it's all going to end in a flurry of arguments and divorce papers. People change, however -- it's just a fact of life -- meaning the two people who say "I do" in the beginning may not be the same people dissolving their marriage in the end.
Before making a decision about separation or divorce, it is important to find out more information about the divorce process so you know what to expect. For couples with complex property division issues or children, the divorce process can be more challenging and take months or years to be finalized.
