Don't just take our word for it. Hear what our clients have to say about us!

I am forever grateful!
The past three years were rough being in a bitter custody battle. Yet hiring Sydney Batch to represent me legally was by far the best choice I could have made. Not only is she experienced and professional but also very supportive. She always answered my questions and took her time. She was available anytime I needed her and provided such solace and comfort during a very difficult time. Sydney Batch truly wants what is best for the individuals in the case, she has a very caring heart which makes her such an amazing attorney. I am forever grateful for her.

Kristen, Child Custody Client

Awesome experience
First and foremost, I gave Shannon practically no time to prepare. With a order to compel against me and a contempt ruling sure to follow. She submitted everything I needed for my E/D case in addition to negotiating alimony. She counter offers very well and thinks quick on her feet. I had an AWESOME experience with this firm. Thanks Shannon for everything!!

Guy Anders, Custody Client

Hope for a Brighter Future!
Patrick Williams represented me in a matter, of critical importance to my family. Anyone involved with litigation concerning a family court matter knows, the fear and uncertainty can be paralyzing. He is an attorney who asks the right questions, understands key issues, and is able to apply a solution that fits your unique situation. I cannot thank him enough for the professionalism, expertise and care he took in advocating for me. I’m forever grateful to the team at Batch, Poore & Williams.

Raleigh Divorce Lawyers

Our Raleigh divorce lawyers proudly represent clients involved in divorce, child custody, and child protective services/child welfare matters. Divorce is one of the most difficult transitions you will face in your lifetime.  The financial and emotional toll of separating from your spouse, especially in longer marriages is immense.  The stress is only compounded when children are involved.  At a glance, many divorcees can expect to lose a significant amount of time with their children, their martial home, and significant financial assets.  In contentious cases, emotions can run high which lead to mountains of attorney fees and unnecessary stress.

The only way out is to push through and it won’t be easy.  You need a competent legal team to help you through it.

If you’re contemplating separation and divorce many issues arise that must be addressed.   Equitable distribution must be addressed in the event you share property with your spouse.  If children are involved, a custodial routine needs to be established.  If you’re a stay-at-home spouse, figuring out how you will make ends meet after a divorce can have a paralyzing affect. If you’re the primary wage earner, supporting two households simply may not work within your budget.

In addition to our suite of family law and domestic violence services, we represent clients in  termination of parental rights, entertainment law, and estate planning.  Our office is located in Wake County but we practice in surrounding counties including, Johnston County, Orange County, Durham County, Harnett County, and Nash County.

Patrick Williams have 45+ years combined experience representing clients in our areas of practice.  Sydney and Shannon are Board Certified Child Welfare Law Specialists and have represented hundreds of clients dealing with Child Protective Services issues, in addition to family law clients.  Patrick has represented clients in the areas of family law, domestic violence, civil litigation.  If you’re looking for experienced Raleigh Family Lawyers, you’ve come to the right place.
