Preparing For The Future Of Your Child

Custody in North Carolina is determined by what is in the best interest of the child. While each parent may have his or her own idea about what is best for the child, it is typically better for all parties if an agreement can be reached out of court. We can represent you in negotiation and mediation, helping you create a parenting plan that details the custody and visitation arrangements.

Parents may be awarded sole or joint legal or physical custody. Physical custody determines where the child will live. Legal custody is the ability to make decisions regarding issues such as education and health care.

Child support may be awarded to the parent who has more overnight visits with the child. Other factors are considered, however, including each parent's income and who pays for the child's health insurance. We can explain the North Carolina child support statute and how it will likely affect your case.

It is not unusual for parents to request a modification of custody, visitation or child support orders. There must be a significant change in circumstances for the court to grant a modification. We have experience with these cases and can help you seek or contest modification.
