In certain legal situations, it becomes necessary to establish the paternity of a child, and there are several ways to do so.

Handling a business during marital property division

For people headed for divorce in North Carolina, the end of a marriage can be complicated not only by the emotional fallout but also by financial complications. This is especially true when a small business owner or entrepreneur decides to divorce. Whether a business owner runs the business on their own or the company is a partnership with one's spouse, the value of the business can be relevant throughout the divorce proceedings.

Divorce mediation offers 2 major benefits

If your marriage is nearing its end, but the relationship between you and your soon-to-be-ex-spouse is relatively amicable and not beyond repair, you may be considering undergoing mediation as opposed to embarking on a more traditional divorce. Instead of each party in the marriage retaining his or her own lawyer to fight on his or her behalf, mediation involves having both parties meet with an impartial third party to hash out details relating to the divorce.

Divorce, older women and financial futures

Since the 1990s, the divorce rate for men and women 50 years old and older has doubled. North Carolina women who are over the age of 50 and who get a divorce may face an uncertain financial situation after their divorce. According to a report issued by the UBS Global Wealth Management, 56 percent of married women allow their husbands to handle long-term financial decisions, so they can be financial vulnerable.

Tips for co-parenting successfully after divorce

While divorcing can prove tremendously difficult, for some people, adjusting to a new child care arrangement can be even more emotionally taxing.

Planning for a financial future during a divorce

For some North Carolina couples, an impending divorce could make it necessary to take steps to protect their finances. One important step may be to separate joint accounts and open individual ones instead. People may want to use this account to save for divorce-related expenses. Couples might also order credit reports and review them both to ensure they are each informed about any existing accounts.
