Sheen pursues child support decree changes

North Carolina residents who are divorced and paying or receiving child support may be interested in the recent request by Charlie Sheen to amend his child support decree. The former "Two and a Half Men" star filed his modification request on July 10, in which he asked the court to allow him to stop paying $55,000 per month of child support to his ex-wife and mother of two of his children, Brooke Mueller. He asserted that the amount of support he pays is excessive considering the children are no longer in Mueller's care regardless of the fact that his considerable take-home income allows him to comfortably pay any "reasonable" amount.

Could alimony potentially be obsolete?

An alimony is intended to be a court-ordered provision paid out to an ex-spouse in the event that they are low-income or have no income at all. This is intended as a payment for those that would otherwise have no means to support themselves after the divorce, and alimony usually does not have a termination date: it is always effective. However, there is new legislation that might change the way that traditional alimony is viewed.

Air miles and divorce

When North Carolina couples go through a divorce, they may reach a divorce settlement agreement that divides common marital assets, such as the family home, retirement accounts, cash and personal collections. However, couples who are going through a divorce may want to scrutinize if there are any other assets worth discussing, such as air miles. While this may not seem like an important asset, it can add up to hundreds or thousands of dollars in value.
