North Carolina bill addresses foreign laws in the courtroom

When a child custody case comes before a judge in Ballantyne, the judge must apply state and federal laws in deciding what the best decision is for that child. The judge must examine the parents’ relationship with children, the home environment the children live in, and if there are any special circumstances such as domestic violence or substance abuse. All of these factors must be considered in order to make a ruling that is in the best interests of the child.

North Carolina mother struggles with child custody judge

When parents cannot make decisions during the divorce process, it usually falls upon a judge to do so. The judge may have to determine how much in child support one parent pays, the amount of time that children spend with each parent and this requires studying all of the facts in the case. Generally, a judge uses a child support formula to determine what an appropriate monthly payment is for the non-custodial parent. The formula considers the parent’s income, financial status and other important factors.

North Carolina Domestic violence murders raise concern

It is a well-known fact that domestic violence in Ballantyne comes in many forms. Some are victims of online stalking, living in fear of someone they may have been once romantically linked with. Others may still be in a domestic violence situation within the walls of their home, subjected to physical, emotional, mental, or sexual abuse. For some victims, sadly the violence escalates until their abuser finally murders them in a fit of rage.

People who find success in the music or movie industry often have to deal with paparazzi and the curiosity of their fans. However, when a celebrity is going through a divorce, the attention from the media can be overwhelming. When the typical couple in Ballantyne approaches the end of a marriage, there can be a mixture of feelings that each spouse goes through. While it may be hard for them to deal with their emotions with the curiosity of friends and family, being a public figure can magnify that experience since everyone knows, or assumes to know, what is going on.

In a typical custody case, the focus is generally on what is in the best interests of the child. Usually, a child custody battle in Ballantyne is fought over which parent will receive physical custody and in many cases one parent may try to show that the other parent is not fit or poses a danger for the child. In other cases, the child custody case is really about the parents trying to gain control over each other and the child is caught in the middle.
