It is not uncommon for separated or divorced couples to run into problems with the visitation of their children. Many times, the custodial parent will prevent the non-custodial parent from seeing his/her children. However, according to a divorce lawyer in Charlotte, the non-custodial parent has a significant amount of rights when it comes to visitation.
The most important thing to note is that it is illegal for a custodial parent to deny visitation when there is an existing custody order that grants visitation rights. Extenuating circumstances are taken into consideration when a non-custodial parent presents a threat or potential harm to the child. That harm does not have to be physical, but could also extend to emotional harm. As long as...

For most people, the common perception of a divorce involves divorce attorneys and some kind of courtroom. However, a courtroom only comes into play during the last stage of the divorce process. There are many other stages that come before that.
One of the first steps is having the defendant served with divorce papers, more commonly known in North Carolina as the absolute divorce complaint. The defendant has the opportunity to answer the complaint, which could include counterclaims. That defendant’s response could be indicative of how long or short of a process lies ahead.
The state of North Carolina has established a precise and calculated way in which child support payment amounts are ordered. Those payments can go beyond what a non-custodial parent brings home in a weekly paycheck. However, any hidden income can lead to much higher weekly child support payments.
An order for child support is rendered based on the adjusted gross income of the non-custodial parent. It basically takes the salary of that parent and deducts a percentage in order to pay the necessary expenses for a child’s cost of living.
Leading up to a wedding, every couple must decide whether or not they want to sign a prenuptial agreement. While it is a common topic, it can be an uncomfortable one to talk about. After all, no one wants to believe that their marriage will not work out.
Nevertheless, it is a very important decision about the future. A couple’s inability to make a decision on a prenuptial agreement prior to a marriage could be a sign that they may struggle with other important decisions down the line.
One of the most important components of any divorce is the distribution of assets between spouses. In order to reach a fair distribution, each spouse must disclose all of their assets. However, many spouses will not be so forthright and attempt to hide some of their assets. Here are some prime indicators that indicate your spouse is attempting to hide assets in a divorce
Historically, the general assumption is that courts are going to award child custody to the mother in a divorce. That is not the case anymore as more fathers are being granted more than just visitation rights or limited custody. More fathers are now being awarded sole custody of their children.
The state of North Carolina no longer makes any presumptions regarding the gender of the parent. The best interest of the child is used as the determining factor as to whether the father or mother will ultimately be granted full custody. The knowledgeable attorneys at SouthparkFamilyLaw.com can help you along your transition.
