In addition, Attorney Catherine R. Bailey specializes as a Certified Family Financial Mediator as well as a Certified Superior Court Mediator. Attorney Kathy H.

Our goal is to allow you to heal and move forward with confidence into a new chapter of life. We believe our approach combines the best way to help all of our clients get the fresh start they deserve after an often-difficult family law issue.

As a Raleigh family law firm, we devote ourselves only to issues such as divorce, child custody, child support, prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements, alimony, mediation, separation agreements, adoption, equitable distribution of marital property and debt, same-sex family law issues, and domestic violence issues. We make every effort to ensure you understand all of the ramifications of any family law decision you make and to give you all the guidance and support you need as you move through the legal process.

We believe our extensive experience, knowledge, and training as well as our positive orientation towards resolving your issue puts your case in truly capable hands. While we emphasize peaceful ways to resolve all family law issues, we are not adverse to fighting for your best interests in court should your case become involved in antagonistic litigation.
