Premarital Agreements, Separation, Divorce and Mediation

Siemens Family Law Group is devoted to family law. Jim Siemens is a Board Certified Family Law Specialist.  He represents clients preparing for marriage and dealing with separation from a spouse.

Premarital agreements and separation agreements are documents Jim  prepares routinely.  Issues frequently addressed by Jim in the context of separation include child custody, child support, spousal support, alimony, the division of marital assets (known as equitable distribution) and divorce.

In 2003, Jim was certified by the North Carolina Supreme Court Dispute Resolution Commission to mediate family law related matters. Mediation is now mandatory in both child custody cases and equitable distribution cases in several Western North Carolina Judicial Districts. Jim is available to mediate family law disputes. Jim’s mediation training also makes him a more effective lawyer representing a client at a mediated settlement conference.
