Be happy or be right?

North Carolina residents who are having to navigate through a divorce may find the process extremely daunting. In most cases, a divorce may entail not only property division, but deciding on child support and alimony amounts. Unfortunately, not only does the divorce process have the potential to be extremely complicated, but in some cases emotions can have a significant affect on how a divorce plays out.

North Carolina man hopes to meet his son

One North Carolina father spent Father's Day alone, hoping to some day meet his son. The North Carolina father has pictures of his son, and prizes one specifically. The photo shows his son holding up his left hand. The man finds this particularly moving because he is left-handed himself. The North Carolina man was not aware that he had a son until he found out through a mutual friend in 2011. His son was 6 months old at the time and had been put up for adoption by the man's ex-girlfriend. He has been fighting for custody ever since.

Family Law is About Perspective

Family law experts, Mark Baer included, have often questioned the perspective of general society thinking prenuptial agreements are wrong. Mr. Baer defines such an argument as circular, or with the evidence having no connection to the conclusion that is being drawn. Most arguments, according to Mr. Baer, are made from a willful ignorance of the facts at hand. Many lawyers and judges in family court share the perspective that the concept of marriage is in itself a "a href="/">prenuptial agreement in what is known as the "Family Code." This code is an argument heralded by Harvey A. Silberman, a family law judge for the Superior Court of Los Angeles County in California. The fact is that most marriages fall apart for financial reasons, and that most people who are divorced regret not having a frank discussion about their finances before taking the plunge. The perspective of a marriage as a merger between two businesses is also an apt analogy to use, according to Baer. Mr. Baer says that certain aspects of business that are not discussed between two parties who are looking to merge will automatically place those aspects of the relationship under the auspices of the Uniform Partnership Act or something like it. Mr. Baer encourages people to follow the evidence and look at marriage as a subsidy of the other business that it is being contracted into. Those individuals who are in need of a different perspective when it comes to their own family law case usually do not have time to rearrange their own philosophy on life. When this is impossible because of time constraints, it is usually best to rely on the advice of a professional with experience in dealing with marriages from this business perspective. People in high asset marriages should especially think about the division of assets because it can mean a change in lifestyle for one party or another.

Recent trends in prenuptial agreements

North Carolina residents often don't want to think about, let alone discuss, a prenuptial agreement prior to their wedding. Many individuals plan marriage because they hope it will be permanent, after all, and to some people, a prenup seems like anticipating divorce. However, while marriage is a contract between two parties, a prenuptial agreement further defines the fine print in the contract.
