Conover Adoption Lawyers
After divorce law, one of the most common areas where family law issues arise is with adoption. North Carolina family law, from the varying statutes to the dense case law, is extremely complex, and adoption law is no exception. Family law attorneys can help advise you on the adoption process, giving you certain advantages before the process even begins and helping you through the process overall. They can help ensure you bring in a new member of your family unit. Adoption is a meaningful, impactful decision influencing multiple lives. Make sure you have the help you need.
Common Legal Issues After the Divorce
Unfortunately, the divorce process does not necessarily end with the entry of a court order, mediation agreement, or similar finding. Oftentimes, there are significant post-divorce issues that arise, most of which will require the guidance and expertise of a family lawyer.
Alimony, wherein a “dependent” spouse might receive financial and/or other support from their ex-spouse, is another complex area of North Carolina family law. Having an experienced attorney could mean the difference in outcome when unfortunate and unexpected issues come up regarding alimony. It can make a difference in properly supporting yourself and your family.
Not only is it important to have expert attorneys advise you in the period after divorce, but it’s also just as important to get advice on alimony issues even before divorce proceedings, or separation begins. You want to know what you’re getting into and what you agree to. Locking yourself into a binding agreement without knowing all of your rights, including what you are entitled to and what you deserve, can have lasting negative consequences on your life.
Child Custody and Child Support
One of the most emotionally charged aspects of divorce relates to the children. Unfortunately, parties without expert representation may make dire mistakes in trying to iron out custody details and child support issues.
For example, regarding custody, family law and divorce attorneys can help you prove your right to custody. If custody is contested, a Family Court will look at multiple factors to determine custody, including development in the following areas: physical, mental, moral, educational, and spiritual. Each of these areas can be a potential battleground between you and your former spouse. A family lawyer can help you prove your right to custody, including painstakingly arguing on your behalf in each of those areas.
Similarly, ongoing child support is essential for your boy or girl’s future. Child support issues don’t end when the divorce is “finalized.” For example, there are processes called deviations, where a party may request an alteration in child support. This deviation requires court proceedings and review. It’s important to know about these issues. Prior to the divorce, during, and after, family lawyers can help advise you on current or future potential child support issues. The benefit of their expertise is an absolute necessity in protecting the interests of your child.
