In North Carolina, a divorce is broken down into a number of legal issues, which include property division, alimony, child custody, child support, and obtaining the absolute divorce itself. In certain situations, the question of who is responsible for paying the attorneys fees may also be an issue. What you need to understand about this is that your unique case may involve all of these issues, or only a couple.
