Rolesville, NC Custody Lawyers

Navigating the intricacies of divorce is hard enough without throwing custody matters into the mix, but your children are the most important people in your life. In addition to asset, property, and debt division, you also need to create a custody arrangement in the best interest of your children’s future. This can be difficult to do when you’re charting a sea of emotions and restructuring your life.

It’s important to remember that your separation isn’t difficult for just you and your spouse, but for your children too. Divorce is more than a shift in your life, but a potentially massive disruption to theirs. They will have to adapt to a new schedule, divided time, and separate homes. That’s why custody matters need to be handled with care. Triangle Smart Divorce will put your children’s well-being at the forefront so that we can lessen the impact of divorce and custody on their day-to-day lives. Call now to request a consultation with one of our Rolesville custody lawyers and we’ll explain your options and parental rights so that we can begin crafting a custody arrangement.

What Are The Different Types Of Custody?

There are two types of custody in North Carolina: legal and physical.

Legal custody refers to who will get to make the important decisions on behalf of their children when it comes to educational, religious, and health-related matters. We usually see parents sharing joint legal custody, unless one parent has a history of neglect or abuse.

Physical custody describes which parent the children will physically reside with the majority of the time. Like legal custody, this responsibility can be shared jointly unless there is an extenuating circumstance in which this wouldn’t be appropriate.

It’s important to remember that custody arrangements are not one-size-fits-all. While you might find comfort in seeking out advice from friends or family members who’ve gone through divorce and custody matters, what worked for them might not work for your family. That’s where the help of a Rolesville custody lawyer becomes invaluable. We can explain your options for custody based on your family’s unique situation.

We can also assist you with modifying your custody arrangement down the road if there is a substantial change in you, your co-parent, or your children’s lives.

High-Conflict Custody

While we prefer to take the high road on the custody journey, we know that isn’t an option for every family. Whether your co-parent is high-conflict and uncooperative or has a history of domestic violence or even substance abuse, we know how to protect you and your children. Our experience in handling personality disorders and unstable relationships allows us to empathize with your situation, but also gives us the ambition to fight diligently for the best possible outcome. We want your life post-divorce to be more peaceful than your marriage was.

Frequently Asked Questions


A divorce lawyer may seem like an extra expense if both parties agree on the big decisions, but the details of a divorce can be complex and hard to navigate without an expert, and getting the agreement properly written ensures that everyone has the security and clarity they need to move forward with their lives. It’s better to do it right the first time than have to keep going back and fixing mistakes. And, in some cases, you may not be able to fix your mistakes.


You should ask a potential divorce lawyer about their prior experience with cases like yours, their approach to negotiations when couples reach a disagreement, and their personal success rate in arriving at a resolution through negotiation and/or mediation.


You cannot have one lawyer serve both parties in a divorce. This would be a conflict of interest. It’s incredibly important that each party feels their individual needs are represented and voiced, and that cannot be done with a single lawyer serving as the representative for both parties.
