Custody Modification Attorney

With more than 30 years of experience, attorney J. Randal Hunter delivers the skilled and knowledgeable representation that clients require during a divorce or other family law matters. Our law firm handles all aspects of divorce and separation, and we are sensitive to the emotional concerns so often connected to family law matters.


When alimony, child support and child custody determinations are made, the arrangements are based on the current situations of each family member. Any substantial change to a person’s circumstances may be grounds for modification. If you are interested in modifying your arrangements, you must demonstrate that you have experienced a substantial change and request a modification.

At the law office of J. Randal Hunter, Attorney at Law, we have more than 30 years of experience counseling clients in divorce and family law matters. Mr. Hunter is certified as a specialist in family law by the North Carolina State Bar Board of Legal Specialization, and our two certified paralegals have more than 30 years of combined experience working with Mr. Hunter.

There are numerous reasons for requesting modifications of child support, child custody or alimony, including:
