How home schooling may impact North Carolina custody rulings

When awarding custody of a child to a parent, a family law judge must consider the best interest of the child. One issue that may arise is whether to place a child with a parent who believes in home-schooling a child. There are many factors that a judge may use to determine if that parent is making a decision that is in the best interest of the child.

Financial preparation for a divorce

Preparation for a divorce in North Carolina follows many of the same guidelines as it would in the rest of the states.

Actor in alimony dispute

North Carolina fans of actor Terrance Howard may have heard that he is claiming that he cannot pay $325,000 in spousal support to his ex-wife Michelle Ghent as required by the terms of their divorce settlement agreement. Although Howard continues to star in blockbuster hits, he insists that all of his money goes directly to his first wife of 14 years, Lori McMasters, in the form of alimony and child support for the former couple's two children. After taking her share, McMasters supposedly writes Howard a check for just under $6,000 each month to cover his own expenses.
