Divorce assets aren't always what they seem to be

When couples living in North Carolina decide to end their marriages, property division is often a primary consideration. In many cases, the spouses genuinely want a fair and equitable settlement but may not fully understand the value of all of their assets. This can sometimes lead to mistakes during negotiations.

Understanding key factors of guardianship

If a parent should pass away, there should be instructions regarding who will take care of his or her children. Many parents may count on their spouses being able to take over. However, it is important to have a plan in place in the chance that a spouse passes or is otherwise unable to care for the child.

Divorce rates by occupation

North Carolina residents who work in fields that involve travel or night life might have marriages that are more vulnerable to divorce than people whose jobs offer more stable hours and a higher income. Data from 2015 gathered in the American Community Survey and presented by FlowingData found that occupations associated with math or science had the lowest divorce rates.

Cooperation in post divorce parenting is the key

Divorced North Carolina couples with young children often have a difficult time in parenting their offspring in two separate households. The differences between the parents that led to their divorce, such as communication, are still present. Adding to those problems, the children themselves are now in an unfamiliar and emotionally difficult situation. During this time, parenting skills must come to the forefront.

Estate planning mistakes to avoid

One of the most important things you should do when creating your estate plans in Charlotte is anticipate potential problems your heirs may encounter. It is easy to assume estate planning is strictly for your benefit. However, your estate plans also have a big impact on the people who will inherit from them. 

Co-parents can work together for their children

Parenting after a divorce or separation can be a difficult situation for North Carolina estranged couples. Even in the most amicable of splits, a co-parenting relationship can be a delicate balance that is affected by the past history of the marriage as well as the best interests of the children.
