Dealing with the family home when a couple gets divorced

One of the first questions many North Carolina residents have when they start the divorce process is about what will happen to the marital home. In some cases, a person may want to retain ownership of the home, especially if there are kids involved and this can help keep the home life stable for them. On the other hand, a person may want his or her share of the equitable distribution of other assets so that a new home can be purchased quickly.

The alternating weeks parenting plan: What it looks like

There are virtually an unlimited number of ways to share physical custody of your children with your ex. Parents can organize their parenting plans around their and their children's schedules to best reflect the needs and best interests of everyone involved. In this article, we will discuss the Alternating Weeks parenting plan, which could be a great way to organize your own parenting schedule.

Modifying a child support order

In many North Carolina divorces where one parent is the primary caregiver of one or more minor children, the other parent is usually required to pay a certain amount in child support each and every month. However, there are situations where the parent who is required to pay child support suddenly cannot due to a significant change in circumstances. Before that parent can get the payment amount reduced, he or she must have the child support order modified by the court.

Teen dads often do not get the support they need

Teen pregnancy is still a major problem for those in North Carolina and around the country who go through the actual experience and become parents. However, much of the focus is on the mothers. Traditionally, teen fathers are only thought of as financial providers. Despite these assumptions, however, teen fathers often plan an active role as caregivers for their children as well.

The importance of father's rights

Both the role of and attitudes toward fathers have changed since 1965. Fathers in North Carolina and across the United States are taking a more active role in raising their children, and the importance of having fathers as active parents has also increased dramatically. This shift in perspective may have a profound effect on custody cases.
