Carteret County woman shot and killed by estranged husband

The decision of domestic violence victims in Charlotte to remain with their abusers is one that many often fail to comprehend. One might think that even a single act of violence would be sufficient to convince one to leave his or her abusive spouse. In some cases, an abused spouse may feel conflicted emotions towards their abusers, remembering the strong feelings that he or she feels for the other yet at the same abhorring the violence that he or she has endured. Other times, a spousal abuse victim may simply fear that if he or she tried to end the marriage, his or her spouse would continue to threaten him or her with more violence or even worse.

How do North Carolina family courts handle parental relocation?

When Charlotte couples choose to divorce, the challenge that both sides often find most difficult to overcome is the physical separation of their families, particularly when those families include children. Yet as time progresses, divorced parents and their children are typically able to develop a new routine that everyone finds agreeable, and life goes on. If, however, a custodial parent wishes to relocate, those same separation issues can quickly come bubbling to the surface again. When such issues arise, the non-custodial parent may choose to try and block the move or to have the child custody agreement that he or she shares with the custodial parent revisited.

A closer look at the child support modification process

The many divorcing parents with whom we’ve worked with here at Epperson Law often still share a common thread: a deep love for their children. It’s that love that helps many to continue to provide financial support for those children even in those cases where they may be the non-custodial parents. Yet very often circumstances can change, and such changes can make meeting one’s child support payments much more difficult. There are, however, opportunities for parents to revisit a child support agreement and make any necessary amendments to make such an agreement more reasonable.

Hedge fund manager's wife wants prenuptial agreement voided

Few in Charlotte enter into a marriage thinking that it will ever end. Yet this sense of optimism can often fade over time as evidenced by current divorce rates. Many of those entering into divorce proceedings are surprised to learn just how much they stand to lose to their spouses. Thus, despite the opinion that some share that such a move may be in poor taste or unromantic, couples are encouraged to enter into their marriages with a prenuptial agreement. Yet even the presence of a prenuptial agreement doesn't stop some from trying to pull their spouses into a dispute over asset division.

Can unpaid child support be collected from a tax refund?

If you’re owed child support from your ex, you can seek to have that money withheld from the one source that almost every American looks to for extra funds: a federal tax refund. Initiating such a service typically only requires that you contact the state child support enforcement office about enrolling in the tax intercept program. Most states require a nominal fee for enrollment in such programs. In North Carolina, that fee can be taken from the funds withheld from your ex-spouse’s return.
