Charlotte firefighter faces domestic violence charges

People often think that how they handle themselves in the privacy of their own homes has no effect on their public perception or social status. However, what goes on behind closed doors all too often has a tendency to spill out into the public eye.

Divorce settlement between former mayor and ex-wife amended

Going through a divorce is rarely an easy matter in Ballantyne. The tensions and emotions involved can run high, and can easily bubble over and lead to a long, drawn out process that can take a huge toll on all of those involved. Once it's over, most people just hope to move on with their lives. However, if information surfaces after the proceedings have ended that may have affected the divorce settlement, or if the circumstances of one or both sides change drastically enough as to warrant it, then the couple may be able to return to court to amend the original settlement.

Hefty child support balance owed by South Carolina father

Children are often the real victims of divorce, losing the security of having both biological parents in the same home and often being used as pawns in the dispute between former spouses. Aside from the emotional trauma is the issue of their financial security in the future. To help ease those concerns, the non-custodial parent is typically required to pay child support to cover health and child care costs. A child support obligation is taken very seriously by the courts, and failure to meet that obligation can be met with serious penalties.

Sperm donor bill could give donors parental rights

Many women in Ballantyne are deciding to become single mothers through being inseminated with sperm from a donor. These mothers understand that they will have sole custody and be financially responsible for that child. Because insemination is often a very expensive procedure, women may turn to a male that they know and ask them to be the donor. However, this can lead to a potential child custody dispute if the biological father decides that they want to be a part of the child's life.

Indian Child Welfare Act invalid in adoption case

When a couple in Ballantyne decides to adopt a child, it is important to make sure that the laws are followed in order to avoid a custody fight if one of the biological parents decides that they want the child. Our readers may remember a story we did back in May concerning an adoption case that was being reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court. The family law dispute was over the claim by the biological father that the adoption violated the Indian Child Welfare Act.
