Contempt can lead to divorce

Some North Carolina spouses could eventually find themselves facing emotional issues in their marriages. If left to grow, a crisis may lead to divorce. While there are many emotions and behaviors that can negatively impact a marriage, contempt is a particularly dangerous one.

Preparing for a divorce

Couples in North Carolina who file for divorce in January are part a trend in which divorce filings tend to peak immediately after the new year. According to some estimates, one out of every five married couples contemplates whether to get a divorce when the holidays end. Those filing for a divorce may benefit from taking certain steps as they prepare to speak with a divorce attorney.

How artwork is treated during a divorce

It is not unusual for discussions over property division to become contentious when couples in North Carolina and around the country file for divorce, and these negotiations can become especially heated when the assets involved include artwork on which it can be difficult to place an accurate value. Art collections are generally acquired with great care over long periods, and spouses are often extremely reluctant to break them up or stand idly by as they are auctioned off.

Divorce and startup entrepreneurs

People in North Carolina who are involved in tech startups might run into additional complications in a divorce. In recent years, the profession that tends to have most complex and high-asset divorces has shifted from medicine and law to tech. The long hours required in building a startup could contribute to the likelihood of a divorce. Many of these entrepreneurs may not have prenuptial agreements in place, and a spouse could have a claim on a portion of the startup.

How divorce can impact credit

Even though a divorce might be a good option for some couples in North Carolina, there are some lingering effects it can have on each spouse's credit. The act of filing doesn't typically make a difference. After a few months, however, there will likely be noticeable changes for both parties involved.
