Should I mediate my child custody case?

When it comes to a child custody disagreement, North Carolina parents will face the difficult task of determining their future relationship with their children and what their role as a parent will look like. Even when parents are able to come to mutual agreement easily, arriving at the final child custody decision can be difficult because parents will try to balance their own needs and wishes with the best interests of their children.

Think you don't have property to divide in a divorce? Think again

We read about high profile, celebrity divorces in the news just about every day. In fact, it seems to happen so often that million-dollar settlements and fights over summer homes can seem almost normal.

What to do when your divorce decree does not order a name change?

Asking for temporary alimony in a divorce

When it comes to pursuing alimony in a North Carolina divorce, many individuals are hesitant. For example, spouses sometimes think that they are overstepping their bounds, and others will judge them for asking to receive alimony from the other spouse. However, if a spouse has the right to receive alimony under the law, there is no reason why he or she should be shy to do so. Indeed, alimony laws exist for a very important reason.

Who gets to keep the family dog in a North Carolina divorce?

Pets are sometimes as important to us as our biological children -- and that is certainly not an exaggeration by any stretch of the means -- but dogs and cats, and other furry friends, are not treated like children in divorce proceedings. They are treated like property. Nevertheless, the heated and strong emotions surrounding the issue of pet custody sends North Carolina couples to court again and again in order to resolve the matter.
