Family Law in North Carolina

We focus our family law practice on protecting families and children. Whether you are considering adoption, need assistance changing your name or your child’s legal name, or need help with the parental legitimation process, you can count on us to help you achieve your goals.

There are specific legal processes in North Carolina for adoptions including a thorough investigation of your background. We can help guide you through this process and help establish a legal relationship between you and the new addition to your family. In some cases, we understand this will involve a legal name change, and we can help with that process as well.

Guardianships in North Carolina are complicated. A guardian is appointed by the courts to manage the affairs of another person. This is a serious commitment and before you determine this is a necessary step, we can help you explore other options. Competence and Guardianship proceedings are handled by the Superior Courts in North Carolina. If you are part of one of these proceedings, contact Baskerville & Baskerville, PLLC immediately and let us help. You should be well-versed in what the guardian’s role is and what responsibilities you may be accepting or acceding to a guardian.
