Divorcing parents can choose alternative custody structures

For many divorcing parents in North Carolina, dealing with child custody concerns can be one of the most difficult parts of the end of the marriage. In particular, parents may be concerned about the impact of the divorce on the emotional and physical well-being of the children. Divorce can disrupt a child's existing routine dramatically, especially as joint custody agreements typically involve the child moving back and forth between their parents' homes on a frequent basis. Because this disruption can seemingly make it more difficult for a child to adjust to the changes in their lives, some parents are looking for custody options to help ease the road.

The court sided 5-4 with a legal immigrant from the Philippines who was convicted of burglary in 2007 and 2009.
