Allie Moore and Matt Gieger have been handling a very important matter for me concerning my great niece. They have done a wonderful job thus far and I am looking forward to the end results, thank ya'll so very much.

My brother and I have been stuck in a horrible situation. A very confusing situation. I had a consultation with Jessica Arthur and I will say her knowledge of law is amazing, she made me feel comfortable and made me feel that we have hope to this situation most lawyers have turned the other way when I speak to them and I want to say from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much. I’m grateful for the time you took to speak to me and look forward to working with you. Definitely recommend Jessica!

Melenni Balbach and Cape Fear Family Law did an outstanding job handling my divorce. Melenni and staff were very patient dealing with the lengthy time it took my ex to agree; along with union QDRO requirements. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Response from the owner: Wow - when you say patience and a QDRO ... you are really telling us all something! Thank you for giving Melenni the praise for her patience and outstanding job. I know she will appreciate it for sure and we all appreciate the recommendation. The team here all wishes you success, joy, and love in your continued journey. Thanks!


Areas Of Practice

Child custody and visitation are two of the most important issues that stem from a relationship failing, but they are not the only issues.  Often with relationship dissolution the financial tensions are extreme.  Managing retirement division through equitable distribution and cash flow between two homes through alimony is fraught with conflict.  We take care to guide clients through the legal landscape, out of court negotiations, and in court processes that sometimes are needed when parties cannot agree.
