After the Ruling: One possible future for same-sex relationships

Now that the landmark ruling by the U.S Supreme Court to uphold same-sex marriages is over and done, many speculate about what will happen for these relationships down the road. In the end, only time will tell, but one sociology professor has her own ideas about the future of equal marriage rights for all.

North Carolina's separation period before divorce

North Carolina requires that married couples be separated for at least a year before a divorce can proceed. This means that a couple must be living apart and not in the same house for a year. While a separation agreement is not required, it is recommended that couples complete one.

Mediation can help North Carolina parents with child custody

Making a well-balanced child custody plan is important, but rarely a simple matter. In most cases, both parents want an agreement that ensures their child's best interests are at the forefront. While this is admirable, it can create unexpected contention between the two parents. Divorce attorneys are always looking for ways to ease clients through the process of determining child custody and one such way is mediation.

Get informed about child support in North Carolina

Like custody issues, child support proceedings cause divorcing parents a great deal of stress. If this is a first time divorce, most parents worry about what to expect when it is time to focus on child support. Unfortunately, this stress is often made worse by fears of not being able to provide for the child. One of the most important tasks a parent can undertake is to address these worries before they overwhelm and a great way to do this is by getting an education on child support.

Can grandparents gain child custody in North Carolina?

According to North Carolina law, third parties can indeed gain custody of children under specific circumstances, and grandparents are considered third parties. However, the process of filing for and gaining custody is not simple as parents have a constitutional right to hold on to their status as parents.
