Committed but unmarried? 3 parenting decisions you should discuss with your significant other

Mothers and fathers do not need to be married to each other to be loving and capable parents. It is also becoming increasingly common for unmarried couples to have and raise children. According to Pew Research Center statistics, about 33 percent of children in the U.S. are raised by unmarried parents.

Allegations of child neglect should be taken very seriously

Raising a child with someone to whom you are no longer romantically connected can be an enormous challenge. This is especially true if you don't trust that person or have a healthy co-parenting relationship. Under these circumstances, fights can erupt regularly and motions to modify custody orders can be an ever-present threat.

When, and why, violating a child custody agreement leads to jail

The case has quickly garnered a great deal of national media attention: Earlier this month, a North Carolina woman was sentenced to a week in jail after having her two-year-old daughter baptized. The case makes for an easy headline; the shock value is apparent. But the legal nuances are, to a large extent, being ignored.

Is the decision not to vaccinate against a child's best interest?

"The best interests of the child." It's a phrase heard in family courts across the nation, including here in North Carolina. But what does it mean? This legal standard leaves a lot up to interpretation for courts and for parents. Unfortunately, when it comes to certain issues like education, religious beliefs, and medical care, some parents have wildly different opinions on what is in the best interests of their child and what isn't. 

Tips for traveling with your kids if you share custody

Millions of people travel over the holidays, whether it is just over the river and through the woods or on a flight across the world. Regardless of where your travel plans take you this holiday season, you would be wise to take steps now to ensure your trip goes smoothly, particularly if you share custody of your kids and plan to take them with you.

How does child custody work in North Carolina?

If you and your spouse are ready to get divorced, you may be concerned with how to share time with your children once you are separated and no longer living in the same house. North Carolina's legal standard for determining custody arrangements is "the best interest of the child." As you can imagine, many divorcing couples have different ideas about what is in their child or children's best interests.
