Responsibility for support of the child of an under-18 parent

Parents of children under the age of 18 in North Carolina might wonder who is financially responsible for the child of their minor child. If both the child's mother and father are under the age of 18 and they are not emancipated, the primary responsibility for child support is shared among the child's grandparents.

Preparing for a child custody hearing

North Carolina parents who are going through a divorce may also need to make a decision about child custody and visitation. If parents cannot agree, then the decision will have to be made by a judge. A judge decides who will be the better parent and what is in the child's best interests even if one parent does not agree with that criteria.

Retroactive child support is sometimes possible

Some parents in North Carolina may wonder if they can ask for back child support for their children when the other parents have not contributed financially to their care. It is possible to request that courts order back child support, but the parents will need to be prepared to provide proof to the court about why it should be ordered.

Dealing with divorce when you are not the breadwinner

Divorce is difficult no matter the surrounding circumstances. In addition to the emotional toll, you may be apprehensive of the impact it will have on your finances. This is especially true if you are not the breadwinner in the family or if you do not work at all. There are several things you should know about maintaining your lifestyle and dealing with divorce in such situations.

How QDROs work in North Carolina

When a couple divorces, any assets that are considered to be marital assets are divided. This means that even items that are in one person's name, such as a retirement account, may be split up when a marriage ends. If assets from a retirement account are to be doled out during a divorce, a Qualified Domestic Relations Order will be created.
