DivorceThe Family Law Group at Pitts, Hay & Hugenschmidt believes in utilization of alternative dispute resolution techniques wherever possible so long as the interests of the client and any minor children can be protected and advanced. Of course, we are a trial firm and it is sometimes necessary to go to court, where decisive actions can be taken. In many cases however, rights can be protected and equitable results achieved in less time, with less expense, and with less hostility and animosity through the use of Collaborative Divorce or Mediation as alternatives to court battles.
Child SupportMost taxes, child support and alimony, student loans, and certain debts incurred as a result of fraudulent behavior are not dischargable in a bankruptcy case.
Child Custody and VisitationThe Family Law Group at Pitts, Hay & Hugenschmidt handles most family law matters including adoptions, divorce, equitable distribution, claims for spousal support, child custody and child support, and termination of parental rights. We accept multi-jurisdictional cases where North Carolina shares jurisdiction with other states or countries. We do not take juvenile court or Department of Social Services cases, nor do we take cases for alienation of affection or criminal conversation. In appropriate cases we will accept cases outside Buncombe County. In conjunction with our representation in your Family Law case, we do simple Wills, Living Wills, Health Care Powers of Attorney, and General and Special Powers of Attorney.
Trusts and Estates
Power of AttorneyIn a life changing event such as a divorce, we customarily recommend revisions to your estate plan including your will, living will, medical directives, and powers of attorney. We provide these services in most cases. In cases where estate tax planning is appropriate or complex estate issues are involved, we will refer you to specific attorneys with expertise in those areas.

ForeclosureThere is nothing worse that you can do to your credit than filing a bankruptcy case. For most people, their credit is already bad due to pending foreclosures and repossessions. A bankruptcy will not improve your credit, although it does provide a way of managing debt so that credit, over time, may be improved.
