What will the court consider during my property division suit?

North Carolina is not a community property state. As such, the court will have more leeway in determining an equitable way to divide you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse's marital estate. In making its property division decisions, the court will consider a wide variety of factors.

What does 'sole custody' mean?

If a North Carolina family law court awards you sole custody of your child, it generally means that you have exclusive legal custody and physical custody of your child. It's not that common for a judge to award one parent sole custody during divorce proceedings, but it may happen if the other parent is seen as unfit to fulfill the role of mother or father. Drug addiction, child abuse and having committed violent crimes could be potential reasons for a parent to be stripped of his or her parental rights.

How a single North Carolina mother of 6 makes ends meet

Single parents do not have it easy. They have to spend the majority of their free time taking care of their children, and the other parent may or may not be present to help ease that burden. One single mother in Burlington, North Carolina, has a challenge that exceeds what most human beings might be able to endure. She has six children, and her ex-husband only has limited visitation rights.

Are you involved in a pet custody battle?

Now that your marriage is coming to an end, you're probably looking to your best friends for extra support. If one of those best friends happens to be your dog, and your spouse has as strong of a connection the animal, you could be facing a pet custody battle in divorce court.

Your spouse's debt is your debt

Money issues and financial concerns are the roots of many divorces. Perhaps, you're a spendthrift penny saver who would never think to hold a balance on your credit card. Meanwhile, your spouse is carrying thousands of dollars of debt due to reckless spending.

National statistics pertaining to child support

If you're paying or receiving child support, it may be interesting to know what the current national statistics say about this topic. Indeed, considering that everyone pays a different amount in child support, and both custodial mothers and custodial fathers may be eligible to receive it, you might want to know how your particular case measures up.
