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.

However, there are other factors that can make property division a particularly challenging legal process, including the complexity of the asset, how difficult it is to value the asset, whether the asset is partly the separate property of one spouse, and whether an asset has both marital and separate components that have appreciated or depreciated over time.

How can I get a divorce in North Carolina?
