North Carolina and electronic visitation

This blog has previously touched on the basic types of child custody that are used by North Carolina family courts in divorce and non-marital custody determinations. To refresh, there is legal custody, which deals with decision-making regarding the child's health, education, and other important issues, and physical custody, which determines where the child will reside. Either of these types of custody can be 'joint' or 'sole,' meaning that either both parties, or only one parent, will have that type of custody. A common arrangement is to give both parents joint legal custody, while giving one parent sole physical custody.

Who can adopt and be adopted in North Carolina?

Many North Carolina residents have dreamed of having a family of their own since they were young. While some individuals do this through the process of biological birth, there are others ways to create a family. One such method is through the legal adoption process. There may be a myriad of reasons people may turn to adoption, including the inability to conceive a child, wanting a legally recognized parental relationship to a child in one's custody, or simply wanting to help an already existing child find a forever home.

How will child support be determined in my case?

Since we brought our children into this world, we have an obligation to make sure they have everything they need to thrive. While you're married, that's an easy thing to do. You have a conversation about what the child needs and you buy it together. In a divorce, a mediator or the courts will help you decide these matters.

Immigration policy changes shake up international adoption

Many Americans have had wonderful experiences raising children they adopted from other countries. However, adoption is rarely a simple matter, and international adoption presents some unique challenges. When Americans adopt a child from a foreign country, the adoption process is generally controlled by the foreign country's laws. This can mean that unfamiliar legal roadblocks and new political pressures can sometimes present problems for adoptive parents in international adoption.

Child custody considerations in North Carolina

Under North Carolina law, there are different types of child custody. The main types are joint custody and sole custody. As is always true when considering child custody, what is in the best interests of the child is the guiding principle when determining child custody. However, North Carolina courts also consider the child's wishes, which may not necessarily be the same as the solution the court determines is in the child's best interests.
