Best interests of the child standard and child custody cases

Just as parents take proactive steps to support their kids and see that their needs are met, so too do North Carolina courts work to meet the needs of the children whose legal interests pass through their chambers. To this end, courts that handle child custody matters follow a standard that places the best interests of the children at the forefront of all legal decisions that will affect the children's upbringing. Keep in mind, though, that all children are unique and have diverse needs. Therefore, courts may issue very different child custody orders depending upon the circumstances they encounter.

What is the difference between an open and closed adoption?

The decision to place one's child up for adoption is an incredibly difficult one. A North Carolina woman may feel uncertainty and fear as she weighs her ability to take care of her unborn child against the opportunities the child may have if adopted into a supportive and loving home. The woman may wonder if she will be able to live her life not knowing where her baby ended up or how they are doing. A birth mother's ability to stay in contact with a child she placed up for adoption will depend upon whether the adoption was open or closed.

Your child's financial needs may be met through child support

Children are a beautiful reminder of just how kind and unassuming the world can be. Children throughout North Carolina exhibit an innocence that, in some cases, is lost as age and experience teach them that they will have to face many challenges during their lifetimes. Many parents want to hold onto that goodness for as long as possible and seek to keep their kids well-cared for while they are still young.

An overview of North Carolina's child custody laws

The divorce of two North Carolina parents can result in the creation of a child custody order. Child custody orders establish the responsibilities of the child's parents once they have officially ended their legal union. There are a variety of ways that custody can be divided, and this post will briefly touch on some of the types of child custody arrangements. Readers are reminded, though, that their child custody plans may take on different characteristics as no two familial situations are the same.
