A Respected Durham, North Carolina, Divorce Lawyer

Divorce is a momentous life decision, and our laws reflect that. One aspect of divorce in North Carolina that surprises some people is the legal requirement that a couple be physically separated for a full year before the divorce can be granted. You do not need to prove "fault" and it is not necessary for both parties to want divorce. The major difficulties for most people lie in resolving the many issues arising from separation — most commonly, children, property and finances.

If you are facing divorce and want to be certain your case is in capable, experienced legal hands with compassion, we encourage you to contact us at Jill E. Burton & Associates, P.L.L.C.

Fighting in Your Best Interest, While Prioritizing Efficiency

In a chaotic time, we recognize that it can be difficult to make decisions and plan for the future. We represent many business owners, doctors, executives, attorneys and other busy, successful people. Attorney Jill E. Burton and our legal team's approach is ideal for people who have a lot at stake but also seek resolution with maximum efficiency.


Like every person and marriage, every divorce has its own character and nuances. We strive to provide clear counsel on major points you must consider, such as:

If protecting your interests requires an aggressive, "take no prisoners" approach — all the way through trial if necessary — attorney Jill E. Burton is absolutely capable. If negotiations or mediation can resolve your disputes, we are accomplished in those areas as well, offering a compassionate approach.

Money certainly does matter — especially to people going through major life changes. In an initial consultation, we will provide a carefully considered estimate of the cost of pursuing your goals effectively. If resolving your case takes less time, effort or resources than we originally estimated, we will refund a portion of your retainer — as we have done on numerous occasions.
