I am thinking about getting a legal separation and getting a contract drafted up between my wife and I so that there are some guidelines and I don’t get taken advantage of. I want to make sure I am a major part of my daughters life. Can I use a lawyer to help mediate this and write this contract that is not a practicing lawyer in the state of NC?
If you reside in North Carolina, you cannot use a lawyer who is not licensed to practice in NC. That would be considered the unauthorized practice of law which is unethical.
