More women paying spousal support

When many people in North Carolina think of alimony or spousal support, they may expect the traditional stereotype of payments made by an ex-husband and received by an ex-wife. This was especially true when many more women and mothers stayed at home full-time. However, a survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found that 45 percent of attorneys working on family law cases had recently seen an upswing in the number of women who were ordered to pay alimony during their divorce.

Guide to establishing paternity

There are major benefits for North Carolina children identifying their birth father. In many cases, the father will make the establishment of paternity easy by voluntarily establishing it. However, in cases where voluntarily establishing paternity is not possible, a birth mother can go through the courts to settle the issue.

How career status can impact a person's relationship status

An increasing number of couples in North Carolina and elsewhere are dropping traditional gender roles in favor of equal marriages. This has come at a time when women are increasingly likely to enter the workforce and take over jobs that were once predominantly handled by men. However, there are instances in which a couple began by embracing traditional gender roles and then transitioned to an egalitarian marriage.

The role that the custodial parent plays in raising the children

North Carolina parents who have physical custody of their children for the majority of the time are known as custodial parents. While this does not necessarily mean that the non-custodial parent, or the parent who does not have the children for the majority of the time, is not involved, most of the responsibility for raising the children falls to the custodial parent.
