Same-sex couples and family law issues

Information collected by the U.S. Census Bureau and shared by shows that as of 2010, there were over 646,000 same-sex households (included both married and unmarried couples) in the United States. A recent Gallup poll shows that 55 percent of Americans now favor allowing same-sex domestic partners to marry. Currently, same-sex marriages are allowed in 19 states. As of last month’s ruling in federal court, North Carolina has now joined the ranks of states that recognize same sex marriages.

What effect does witnessing domestic violence have on children?

Many of those in Charlotte who are suffering through abusive marriages often list a number of different reasons why they choose to remain with their abusers. Among the most common is their desire to keep their families together. The thought that many abused men and women who feel this way share is that they can succeed at keeping the signs of the abuse away from others, especially their children. Yet information shared by the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence shows that those attempting to conceal such abuse from their kids are failing. According to the NCCADV data, every year between 3.3 to 10 million children witness acts of emotional and physical abuse in their families.

The challenges to refinancing one’s home following a divorce

One of the most contentious aspects of Charlotte divorces can be who gets to keep the house. Some soon-to-be divorcee may feel as though they’ve won something when they get to keep their houses. In many cases, however, this proves to be quite far from the truth.

Health care coverage as part of child support

Child support agreements may, at least from an outside perspective, seem fairly cut-and-dry. One parent is required to provide financial assistance to the other in order to ensure that the couple's children are properly taken care of. Yet for many of the child support agreements that exist between divorced couples in Charlotte involve a number of different elements and can thus be quite complex to adhere to. One such element that often raises a number of questions is the obligation of non-custodial parents to carry health insurance for their children.
