1. Should I take pre-divorce education alone or with my spouse?  A pre-divorce education can be done alone or with your spouse.  However, we recommend you and your spouse attend together, if possible.  

2. What kind of things can you expect to learn in pre-divorce education? You and/or your spouse will learn the legal and personal issues you may need to address if you are contemplating separation or divorce. You will also learn the pros and cons of the process options available to you to resolve your legal issues and untangle your financial and parental affairs. There are many options, including Collaborative Divorce, mediation, and litigation, so it’s helpful to understand each process and the pros and cons of each..  

3. Do issues like child support, child custody, alimony, and property have to be decided before finalizing the divorce? In North Carolina, support, child custody, alimony, and property do not have to be decided before the divorce is final. However, if you want to “preserve your claim” or maintain your legal right to alimony and equitable distribution, you need to file these claims with the court prior to the Judgment of Divorce being granted.  If you believe you have a claim for alimony and/or property, you should consult with a family law attorney before proceeding with divorce.
