The right steps when alimony comes up in your divorce

Alimony, as many of our readers in North Carolina may know, is more commonly becoming known as spousal support. Whatever you call it, this is an issue that, when it comes up in a divorce case, can see the divorcing spouses pitted against each other with strong, negative feelings. After all, since an alimony award oftentimes means that one spouse will be required to continue to pay money to the other spouse even after the divorce is finalized, that ongoing relationship may not be desirable for one or more of the spouses. When it comes to alimony in a divorce case, the right steps to this sensitive issue are crucial.

How might your child custody arrangement turn out?

When it comes to legal proceedings that involve children, the parties can go through quite a range of emotions as the process plays out. Child custody disputes are a prime example, whether they come up in the process of a divorce or between a couple who has a child together but were never married. No matter the range of emotions that the parties might go through, it is important to keep an eye on the main goal of the child custody process: to determine an arrangement that is in the best interests of the child.
