North Carolina couples add pet custody to divorce settlement

Modern divorce settlements are expanding the definition of "family" to include the family pets. Celebrity couple Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith made headlines recently for including custody of the couple's dogs, but the practice of including shared pets during property allocation is becoming more popular.

Halle Berry settles with ex-boyfriend over child support

South Carolina movie fans may be aware of the recent settlement between Halle Berry, the celebrated film actress, and her former boyfriend in connection with child support payments. Their six-year-old child, a daughter, will be supported financially by her mother to the amount of nearly $200,000 a year.

Property division considerations in a divorce

Couples planning to get a divorce may want to begin taking an inventory of all of the assets that they will need to divide when they separate. As North Carolina follows the principles of equitable distribution, the court will divide marital property in a manner that it deems fair unless the parties are able to come up with a property distribution agreement on their own. As "fair" does not necessarily mean "equal" in this case, it often behooves the couple to work out a solution themselves.

When to choose litigation over negotiation

North Carolina couples who are in conflict over issues like child support and property division during a divorce may be considering taking the matter to court. However, this may not always be the right solution. Court can be expensive and emotionally draining and may not produce the resolution hoped for. Some individuals who look into litigation may find that they simply cannot afford it, but even for those who believe they can, it is important to take a look at what may be gained. It is possible that any financial victories in court will be wiped out by the expense. Furthermore, a trial can be both time-consuming and stressful.
