At Jackson Family Law, we understand the stress and uncertainty that clients often experience during the separation and divorce process. Jill Jackson provides thoughtful, compassionate guidance so that her clients know what to expect every step of the way.
Jill is a hardworking, detail-oriented, hands-on advocate who takes the time to learn and think about every client and every case. Jill does the work herself – reviewing financial information, preparing spreadsheets, selecting trial exhibits, drafting documents – because she knows that her clients will be best served by a lawyer who is familiar with every aspect of their case.
Jill combines practical advice with an academic knowledge of family law and years of litigation experience to help her clients reach the best outcome for them and their children.
Retirement & QDROs
Retirement benefits are valuable assets subject to equitable distribution when parties separate and divorce. Pensions, defined contributions plans (such as a 401(k) or 403(b) account), governmental benefits (such as TSERS, LGERS, CJRS, TSP, FERS, and CSRS), military pensions, annuities, non-qualified plans, and IRAs can be complicated to divide in equitable distribution and are subject to specific tax considerations.
Jackson Family Law has extensive experience with all types of retirement and deferred compensation assets, both for our clients and as a frequent consultant to other North Carolina family lawyers. Our services can include the calculation of the marital portion of benefits to be divided, advice about how to accomplish the division of a particular retirement asset, and the drafting of necessary language to accomplish the assignment of benefits.
Prenuptial Agreements & Postmarital Agreements
North Carolina law gives broad flexibility to spouses (and future spouses!) to agree about what will happen with their finances and property in the event of a future separation. These agreements can be simple or complex, depending on the needs and wishes of the spouses.
Jackson Family Law offers insightful and practical advice to clients at all stages of the marriage process and in all phases of life as they consider whether a marital contract is appropriate for their situation and how it may impact their future.
