Child support issues in North Carolina

An individual or institution that has custody of a minor child may bring appropriate action to seek support for that child. A child's mother and father are typically deemed liable for support unless the circumstances warrant otherwise. Additionally, parents of a minor child who is not emancipated may be deemed liable for support of a grandchild to some degree as well. If both parents of a child are minors who are not emancipated, then both sets of grandparents may be considered responsible for the support of that grandchild.

Factors that determine child support in North Carolina

A mother and a father are both responsible for caring for their child, so when one of the parents has primary custody of a child, the other can generally expect to pay child support. When deciding the amount of support that the non-custodial parent pays, the court takes several factors into consideration.

Uncontested divorce procedure and requirements

An uncontested divorce is the least complicated type of divorce in North Carolina and involves a few basic steps. First, one party files court papers to ask for a divorce along with details of property division, alimony and child custody if applicable, then the other party is notified of the filing. A hearing is then scheduled, with both spouses notified of the hearing date, and finally, a judge signs the decree at the hearing granting the divorce.
