Charlotte Out-of-State Divorce Order Attorneys
North Carolina Out-of-State Divorce Order Registration
If you have relocated to North Carolina from another state, your existing family orders covering child custody, child support, and spousal support (alimony) can be registered in North Carolina. This enables you to have these orders enforced in North Carolina as of the date of registration.
A party subject to a family law order covering child custody, child support, or alimony can contest the registration of that order in North Carolina. To do so, you must file a request for a court hearing within 20 days after service of the notice of registration. If you fail to file this request, the family law order will be confirmed and you will have no further right to contest the registration of the order.
At Jetton & Meredith, we help new residents of North Carolina register their family law orders. In most cases, we can achieve the registration of orders for a reasonable flat fee, unless the other party subject to the order chooses to contest it.*

Prompt, thorough, understanding and knowledgeable, are only a few of the adjectives that describe Jetton & Meredith. Fabulous lawyers, highly recommend for any family law cases!!- Former Client
Eric Meredith represented me during what turned out to be a lengthy divorce settlement. During the first meeting, he fully explained the process ahead and answered all my questions and concerns. I still remember the feeling of relief after that meeting knowing I had a true professional in my corner. Eric, along with his Paralegal Julie, kept me updated along the way and were quick to respond with any additional issues. Not only did he call with any updates to the case, he also would ask how I was doing. I cannot recommend Eric at Jetton & Meredith enough.- Tim
I highly recommend Mark. I hired him to handle a simple assault charge that was filed against me. Mark handled it professionally and expeditiously. He explained each step in the process, and everything happened just as he described. He is exactly the type of lawyer you want representing you.- J&M Client
Great service and very personal. Jetton & Meredith are very hardworking attorneys. I will recommend Jetton & Meredith to anyone in need.- Former Client
I cannot stress enough how great the customer service was with Jetton & Meredith, with my case being a little more complicated I had the opportunity to work with both Mr. Jetton and Mr. Meredith. I can say they know their stuff, Mr. Jetton was able to get my case dismissed the first time we went to court, no questions asked. Working with Mr. Meredith was a longer process but he walked me through the steps and gave me realistic expectations of an outcome that he was able to provide just as he stated he would do. I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision to hire Jetton & Meredith as my attorneys, and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of an attorney!- Former Client
This law office far exceeded my expectations. All options and possible outcomes were set before me from the start and everything was handled in a professional and timely manner. Not only will I use this law firm again, but I would also and have already recommended them to the people I care most for. Thank you for all you’ve done.- Former Client
