Enforcing an out-of-state child support order in North Carolina

Not that long ago Americans spent much of their lives living in the same communities where their parents grew up. It was not uncommon for individuals to stay near their places of birth for the entirety of their lives and raise their families in the same towns they grew up in. A lot has changed, though, and now many of the residents of North Carolina have moved into the state from other states as well as nations across the world.

Our firm provides legal support for adoptions

Not long ago this Greenville family law blog offered an article on the many different types of adoptions that North Carolina residents may endeavor to complete in order to expand their families. Stepparents may seek to adopt their spouses' children through stepparent adoptions. Individuals may wish to adopt children from within the country through open or closed processes. Others may wish to bring children from other countries into their lives through international adoptions.

Special rules that apply to North Carolina adoptions

A legal adoption allows a person to join the family of another person and to benefit from that affiliation. In North Carolina it is often children who are adopted into the families of others, but interestingly enough adults may also be adopted under the state's laws. This informative post will introduce some of the state's adoption rules, but it is in no way comprehensive. Readers who want to learn more about adoption are asked to bring their questions up to a family law attorney.

What events end child support in North Carolina?

When a person brings a child into the world they are obligated to provide for that child financially as the youth grows into an adult. Generally, in North Carolina and many other jurisdictions throughout the country, a parent's child support obligation lasts until the child reaches the age of majority, which in North Carolina is 18 years of age. However, a child support obligation can end earlier if certain conditions are met.
