Child Custody Archives

Establishing paternity as an unmarried father

In North Carolina, an unmarried mother has sole legal and physical custody of a child when the child is born. Even if the unmarried mother and father are together, the man has no legal rights over the child without establishing paternity. An unmarried father will have to establish paternity if he wants custody or visitation time with the child.

Building a solid foundation for co-parenting with a plan

Making the transition from being married to being divorced and potentially on your own is not easy, especially for parents. However, many parents strive to ease that transition by committing to working together to raise their children, even after divorce.

What to consider for bird's nest co-parenting arrangements

One of the main concerns for divorcing parents is the impact their separation will have on their child. A recent study by the Annie E. Casey Foundation which analyzes factors that determine the well-being of children throughout the United States is amplifying some of those fears. While North Carolina ranked close to the middle in most of the factors such as health and education, the state placed 36th when it came to the family and community category.

Are you allowed to move when you have a child custody agreement?

You believe your children need both parents to grow into happy, healthy adults. That is why you agreed to share custody or allow visitation with your former spouse. However, you were just promoted, and your new job will require a move. Or maybe you are longing to live closer to your relatives. Whatever the reason, the time has come for you to relocate, but you are not sure whether you can legally move with your kids.
