The list of big decisions parents make regarding their minor children is a long one. These decisions cover all sorts of important areas, including health care, religion and education. Such decisions can deeply affect kids, possibly for long after they have reached adulthood. When parents who have children who are still minors get divorced, who the authority to make these impactful decisions goes to after the marriage ends is one of the key things that needs to be figured out in the divorce.

Courts have wide discretion in North Carolina alimony cases

The amount of discretion courts are given in alimony cases here in North Carolina is considerable. For one, there aren't strict, detailed guidelines in the state for when a court can grant alimony when an alimony request is made in a divorce case. The main things a court needs to find to issue an alimony award are that there is a supporting spouse and a dependent spouse and that issuing such an award to the dependent spouse would be equitable given all relevant factors. The only situation in which stricter rules apply is when there are findings of illicit sexual behavior.
