Family Law

Family law cases can be some of the most contentious and most expensive legal matters that individuals may ever have to face. Additionally, situations involving child custody and division of marital property can be some of the most intense personal issues that you may ever have to address. Mr. Levy recognizes the intensely personal nature of these legal issues and looks for solutions that can be time efficient and cost effective for his clients.

Levy Law Offices works on cost-efficient solutions to family law cases. All family law cases do require an initial advance fee (often referred to as a "retainer"). However, the advance fee required by Levy Law Offices for many family law cases may be less than many other family law attorneys and firms in the Raleigh area. Additionally, the advance fee required by Levy Law Offices for "non-court" cases, which include the drafting and negotiation of separation agreements and consent orders for custody and child support, are usually significantly less than the advance fee for "court" cases (lawsuits and contested litigation).

Clients have the option to pursue less costly options which do not involve litigation in the court system, and are usually more cost effective to the client. These options include the negotiation and drafting of a separation agreement and related consent orders for child custody, child support, and distribution of retirement accounts, as needed. Clients still receive zealous and effective representation without filing a lawsuit. However, if an out-of-court resolution cannot be reached, Mr. Levy is prepared to pursue his clients' interests in court.
