Understanding stepparent adoption

There are many ways a person can become a parent. They could have their own child by birthing them. If a couple finds it difficult to conceive, IVF or adoption are frequently used to allow them to become parents. Finally, if a man or a woman marries a person who is a parent, they could become a stepparent. While being a stepparent could just be a title, it could also come with legal rights and parental obligations.

We all want what's best for our children. For each family, this can mean different things. It could mean being raised by both parents in the same home; however, when divorce tears a family apart, this means establishing a new parenting plan that works best for everyone. In society today, shared parenting isn't just the trend, it is considered the best option for the children. This also holds true for celebrity parents going through dissolution.

Addressing your child support needs during divorce

It is no doubt that when you have a child you are faced with a multitude of responsibilities. While some of these come naturally, others are more obvious and have to continually be addressed. Raising a child can be costly; thus, parents often work to bring in enough financial recourses so these needs are met. But, when parents divorce, they are no longer a unit working to pay for the needs of their child. Thus, child support is frequently requested during dissolution, as it is the only way to ensure that the financial needs of the child will continually be met.

Noncustodial parent's bankruptcy does not end child support

Not every North Carolina resident will file for it, but many have heard of it: bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is the legal process by which a person may eliminate many of their debts either through the liquidation of their assets in Chapter 7 bankruptcy or the repayment of their debts in Chapter 13 bankruptcy. When a noncustodial parent who has delinquent child support payments in their history files for bankruptcy, a custodial parent may become nervous about whether those payments will ever be made.
