Guidelines parents should understand about raising children

Trying to raise a child after divorce or outside of traditional marriage may be a challenge for some parents in North Carolina. However, it can be easier when both parents acknowledge that they are acting on behalf of the children and not themselves. Ideally, adults will work together to overcome their issues whether they are related to the children or not. Furthermore, those issues should be resolved in private and not when the kids are around.

When marriage ends, parenting continues

As some North Carolina residents know, divorce is a complex process that can become even more complicated when children are involved. Having children means that the divorce negotiations will not just focus on the division of property. The final agreements must address custody issues and support payments as well. Once the divorce is finalized, then the work of co-parenting begins.

Options for flexible child visitation schedules

Parents in North Carolina who make a child custody agreement in which one person is the custodial parent and the other has visitation rights have a number of options for the child custody and visitation schedule. One of the most common schedules is one in which the child spends every other weekend with the noncustodial parent.

Abusive parents can still get custody of their kids

Those who are perpetrators of abuse in North Carolina and elsewhere may attempt to gain control over their victims through their children. Specifically, they try to gain custody or other rights to the children as a means of staying in the victim's life. This is a form of what is known as coercive control, and it takes the form of financial or mental abuse as opposed to using physical violence against a victim.

A co-parenting plan can be important after divorce

It's no secret that North Carolina divorces can get pretty messy when children are involved. While both parents may care deeply about the best interests of their children, it can be very difficult for divorcing spouses to come to an agreement on a number of contentious issues. Most parents are dedicated to having the highest possible amount of time with their children. Absent of abuse, it's important to support a child's close relationships with both parents.

Shared parenting on the rise in child custody arrangements

Shared parenting may be one option for parents in North Carolina who are getting a divorce and who must negotiate a child custody agreement. These types of arrangements are becoming increasingly popular as fathers want to become more involved in their children's lives, and a number of state legislatures are considering bills that will make it the default arrangement. While it is is supported by fathers' rights groups, some legal organizations and women's rights groups are against it.
