Do's and don'ts: Talking to your child after divorce

The legal process of a divorce is to help spouses end their relationship as smoothly as possible. However, the last thing that either spouse wants is for their relationship with their children to dissipate as well. Divorce is difficult for both parents and children and it can cause strain in a family's relationships.

How opioid abuse is leading to more grandparent caregiving

The "traditional" American family doesn't look quite the same as it used to. As just one example, consider the fact that in many households, grandparents are taking on the role of primary caregiver to their grandchildren (rather than an being an extra set of eyes or frequent babysitter).

Understanding 'joint custody'

There is no set definition of joint physical custody. Many people think that joint custody automatically means that each parent has an equal amount of time, but that is not necessarily the case. Joint custody can refer to a number of different custody arrangements under which the parents share custody of the children. A "50/50" schedule is simply one form of a joint custody schedule, under which each parent has the same number of overnights.

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.
