Some mothers in North Carolina might not get custody of their children even if they allege that the other parent is abusing the children. This was one of the findings of a professor at George Washington University Law School.

Children need to feel safe with both parents

Parents in North Carolina are given custody or visitation rights only if it is in the best interest of the children to do so. If there are concerns about a child's safety while with a parent, that person may lose custody or other rights.

Parents who believe that their children are in danger should collect evidence to back their assertions.
