A closer look at why many believe custody cases favor mothers

Many of the Charlotte couples with whom we’ve helped to negotiate child custody here at Epperson Law PLLC come into such proceedings with the preconceived notion that such decisions are more often likely to cater to the needs of the mother. Many question why this apparent gender bias is present in custody agreements. In this post, we’ll examine some of the factors that go into determining child custody and why, despite no legal statutes requiring it, rulings often will go the mother’s way.

What are the criteria for post-divorce modification?

Many may feel that when couples divorce in Charlotte, their involvement with family law matters ends with the establishment of orders for spousal and child support and/or child custody. Yet as time passes, the circumstances surrounding a separated couple can change, causing one or both parties involved in a divorce agreement to revisit the terms of their arrangements. The guidelines and regulations governing such changes, however, are typically very specific regarding the scenarios that may warrant a change. 

The link between cyberstalking and domestic violence

For the men and women in Charlotte who’ve been the victims of spousal abuse, escaping those abusive marriages is a major step in guaranteeing not just their own future safety, but that of their children and extended families, as well. Yet simply leaving an abusive marriage may not signal an end to the threat of domestic violence from an ex-spouse. Often, the threat of abuse remains; it just may take a different form.

Beware the dangers of social media during divorce

While it might seem difficult to comprehend, the proliferation of social media sites has actually made a significant impact on the field of family law here in Charlotte. During divorce proceedings, separating couples often remain very guarded with their actual thoughts and feelings. Yet when they’re away from the legal proceedings, those involved in a divorce dispute will often do what many of the over 1.7 billion others around the world that eMarketer estimates are currently using social media sites do: share deeply personal feelings and experiences through posts, tweets, and comments. What those who do this often don’t understand is that such information can be used against them during disputes involving child custody, alimony, or property division.
