Putting Your Children First By Finding Custody and Support Solutions That Work

Unlike other types of divorce issues, there is no clear winner in a child custody dispute. Divorced parents with minor children will continue to be tied to one another long after the divorce judgment has been entered. If the parents end up damaging their ability to communicate with each other about issues concerning their children, then the future will be more difficult for both of them – and for their children.

At the Knox Law Center, the goal of our family law attorneys is to help our clients create parenting plans that will help them preserve parent-child relationships and raise healthy children. While every family is unique, divorcing parents need to put their children’s best interests first.

Legal custody and physical custody

North Carolina has two types of child custody:

• Legal custody, which refers to the right to make medical, educational, religious and other major life decisions

• Physical custody, which refers to where the child lives

Legal custody is shared in North Carolina unless there is a strong reason not to do so. Physical custody can range from a shared parenting plan where each parent has the child 50 percent of the time to a traditional plan where one parent has primary custody and the other parent has visitation.

Respectful communication between parents is essential in crafting a parenting plan. Issues regarding the children will continue to arise after divorce, and parents must learn to communicate effectively.

Excellent services provided.

Attorney Frances Knox helped my family in providing much needed legal documents. She was very prompt, knowledgeable and went well out of her way to help us. She provided excellent legal services and was very congenial and easy to work with throughout the process. I highly recommend her as an attorney.

Exceptional Legal Representation & True Professional, Genuine Individual

I first met Allen after he was recommended to me by a friend, and I couldn't be happier with the service that he provided. He demonstrated a unique attention to detail in my case, as well as expressed a genuine interest in me as a person. Through a great deal of hard work, Allen was able to appeal my case and get all of my charges dismissed. I couldn't be more grateful for him and his assistant, Sherry, for their legal and personal support during such a difficult time. Hiring Allen was the greatest decision I've ever made, and I would recommend Allen to anyone seeking exceptional legal representation.

The most amazing lawyer, a true gem & winner

Allen is the best lawyer I've ever met! His character is genuine, and there is a warmth about him that makes you feel so comfortable. If you ever get into a situation with DWI, and feel truly remorseful for what happened, HIRE him for the BEST chance possible. I previously spent 6000$ on an attorney who just didn't feel like they really gave me the personal care that I needed. They were only in it for the money. After hearing raving reviews about Allen, I fired my lawyer and took a leap of faith with Allen. Even though I had to pay two separate times and could not get a refund for the previous lawyer, IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! He won my case with dignity, respect, and care and I am forever thankful to him for this.

The Actual Best.

You can get know better than this firm. No doubt about them being at the top lawyers nation wide. If you are in the Charlotte area you cannot get better. After being turned down by other firms Ms. Knox took the case and came back as a winner. Those guys who have their adds on the trains and bus here could not even stand in the same room with these attorneys. They make sure you are comfortable mentally and physically. Just let them do their job and they will get the job done. The best yes they are and that is a fact. Thank you Ms. Knox for being the person you are. Even when i lost faith in the case you held fast. Thank you over and over. Happy client.
