Common Points of Conflict in a Divorce

In North Carolina, divorces are either categorized as uncontested or contested. In uncontested divorces, couples are on the same page about how to allocate shared assets. While it is obviously favorable to experience an amicable divorce, it’s still essential to have your agreement looked over by an attorney to ensure it is fair and equitable.

Many divorces are contested, meaning couples are not in agreement about how to allocate their assets or who should have custody over their children. In contested divorces, there are common factors couples fight over. These main points of conflict include:

  • The division of their property. In divorce, property includes physical property—such as furniture and real estate—but it also includes assets in the form of retirement funds, stocks, etc. Factors such as the length of the marriage, children, and each party’s income are taken into consideration when dividing property.
  • Child custody. When a couple has children, they must negotiate the terms of child custody and assign parenting responsibilities. Physical custody may be granted to both or one parent depending on the factors surrounding the divorce.
  • Child support. Child support ensures children are supported financially after a divorce. In North Carolina, both parents are required to pay child support until their children turn 18. Usually, only the non-custodial parent formally pays child support, as the parent who has primary custody will already spend money on resources and necessities for the child.
  • Alimony. Sometimes, a spouse will pursue an alimony agreement from their partner. In these agreements, one spouse is required to financially support the other for an agreed-upon time period. In determining alimony agreements, the court will consider the income gaps between spouses, the length of the marriage, and each party’s financial situation.

The majority of conflict points in divorce fall into one of these categories. If you suspect your divorce will be of high conflict, it’s essential to have a skilled divorce attorney on your side.
