Understanding child custody is not always easy

Going through a divorce can present you with many confusing scenarios. Though you likely wish that you could simply sign a piece of paper and have everything settled, that is not how the process works. In fact, you will need to make many decisions during your case, and the court may step in to make some of those decisions.

How a strategic divorce could cause a couple to lose money

It may be surprising to some North Carolina residents that a strategic divorce is being used by some high earning couples in the United States in order to help them save money on their taxes. Since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act went into effect in 2018, high earning couples have been subjected to higher tax liability because of the so-called "marriage penalty." In the eyes of the IRS, couples are better off as single.

What makes a good health care power of attorney?

If you are like many in North Carolina, your health is important to you. Even if you don't always make the right diet choices or exercise as much as you should, you know that, once your health declines, your quality of life may never be the same. If the time should come when poor health prevents you from making your own decisions about your medical care, do you know what will happen to you?

Why some entrepreneurs may want a prenup

People in North Carolina who are considering starting their own businesses may also want to consider a prenuptial agreement. This can keep the company separate from the couple's joint property in case of a divorce. According to some attorneys, there is a rise among young entrepreneurs asking for a prenup even if they do not yet have a company in place.

Basic steps to determine the value of a pension plan

Dividing assets is a huge part of the process that North Carolina couples go through when getting a divorce, especially if it is a high-asset divorce. It is important to understand the value of an asset before it can be divided fairly. One of the most difficult assets to value is a pension plan. Here are basic principles that apply to dividing pension plans in a divorce.

Establishing a positive coparenting relationship

After a divorce, former spouses in North Carolina might have trouble raising their children together. While coparenting can be complicated, there are ways exes can work together and ease the tensions. It's wise to establish a positive coparenting relationship for the good of the children.
