Researchers say some wedding dates linked to divorce

Couples in North Carolina who choose the most convenient day for their wedding might fare better than those who insist on getting married only on a special date, such as Valentine's Day. A study by researchers in Australia found a correlation between some wedding dates and a higher possibility of divorce.

The case for a premarital agreement

In the rosy light of a blossoming romance, it's easy to forget about the long-term practicalities. Whether you have proposed over champagne and roses or you asked the most important question of your life after a sunset stroll on the beach, you are likely basking in the the moment.

Why do some couples choose mediation for their divorce?

Divorce is never an easy process, even when both parties remain committed to working together amicably. In order to resolve divorce disputes and reach a reasonable resolution to disputes, some couples turn to specific methods to help them through this process. Mediation is a way for you and your spouse to go through divorce without ever stepping foot inside a courtroom.

Dividing a student loan debt in divorce

In an equitable distribution state like North Carolina, a court will consider several factors to determine whether one person's student loan debt should be considered marital property for purposes of divorce property division. If the debt dates from before the marriage, it will probably be considered separate and will not be subject to division.

The importance of active non-custodial parents

There are many different child custody arrangements that can work for North Carolina families after the parents decide to divorce or separate. While many years ago, joint physical custody was unusual, it is now favored by many family courts as an ideal solution absent an environment of neglect or abuse. However, for others, one parent having primary physical custody may be the better solution, even when both parents are actively involved in their children's lives. For example, some parents may struggle with physical custody if they regularly have to travel on business trips, face deployment, or work odd hours or lengthy shifts.

Are you divorcing a narcissist?

Divorce can be a stressful situation for anyone, but it is even more so when dealing with someone who has narcissistic tendencies. Narcissism is defined as having an excessive interest or admiration in oneself.

Reasons why teenagers can be especially difficult to raise

Parents in North Carolina and every other state know that it is hard to raise a teenager. This is because teens are going through an emotional and physical transition from childhood to adulthood. It is important for parents to remember that teens still need support and guidance even as they start to have a greater say in their own lives. For those who are divorced and attempting to raise a teenager, it is important to communicate effectively with the teen and the other parent.
