Mental Health and Substance Abuse
This practice area is a point of passion for our firm. We strive to provide results and protections for those suffering from mental health and substance abuse issues. We want to help you establish a better life, with your health being our number one priority.
Collaborative Family Law
Are you separating but want to put your children first? This collaborative practice minimizes stress and fighting. Our goal is to reach a solution to help everyone gently turn the page without the expense and stress of the court system. By choosing to work with a collaborative family law attorney in Gastonia or Shelby, NC, you choose one of the most beneficial options available when seeking a divorce. Not only does it remove some of the most painful and aggressive aspects of divorce proceedings, but it also offers the parties more autonomy and control over the outcome of their divorce as opposed to letting a judge make the final call.
Domestic Violence is a severe allegation and deserves an advocate that understands the stringent language to secure a restraining order. Since the courts can often make the process of securing a restraining order quite tricky in North Carolina. Situations involving domestic violence are already some of the most potentially traumatizing and jarring experiences one can endure. Having an attorney with you along every step of the way can offer the resources and support you need to not only get through the ordeal but give yourself and your family the best chances of being protected and finding the peace of mind to which you are entitled.
Child Custody and Divorce
When you need someone in your corner to protect your children and your assets, we will be there with you—step by step. Divorces are stereotypically some of the most challenging and hostile endeavors a couple can endure. Especially if there are children involved, they can become hostile and reach a point where neither party may get what they want while forcing the child to endure the battle as well. To begin reaching your goals in a divorce and ensuring the best interest of the child or children will be protected, working with a divorce attorney in Shelby or Gastonia, NC, is essential. Since child custody can be such a challenging determination to alter in the future, getting the job done right the first time is paramount, which is precisely what we do here at Hometown Counsel.
Guardianship can be a tricky and many-faceted issue. Even in the "simplest" of situations, the considerations and regulations involved in guardianship proceedings can be challenging to work with without the experience and specific knowledge that comes with working on successful cases in the past. From aging relatives who may not be capable of keeping up with their affairs or cases of special needs adults, those impacted by guardianship cases and the prospective guardians deserve the compassionate and professional support that a Guardianship attorney in North Carolina can only provide.
Not every child fits the mold of the school system, and some require special attention, tools, and resources to continue their success. Our job is to maximize their success by using the law to the fullest potential. Education is a fundamental part of growing up, and ensuring every child gets their fair shake at the process is something we at Hometown Counsel feel strongly about. If you feel you are in need of educational law support, the best next step is to discuss your situation with an education law attorney in either Gastonia or Gaston County as soon as possible to find a solution. The sooner you do, the sooner your child can get back to the education they deserve.
