During a divorce, there will be many different discussions happening on a wide range of relevant topics, such as child support and custody. It is highly recommended that you address these topics with your Concord divorce lawyer to receive the guidance you need. Some of these topics could include:
Child custody and support: These discussions will include important decisions about the well-being of your children, including what type of custody arrangement will be the most advantageous and how much money the non-custodial parent must contribute to support the child.
Alimony and property division: Negotiations about alimony will likely be a point of discussion within your divorce proceedings. Alimony is the financial support the partner who makes more money might have to offer their ex-spouse post-divorce. The size of each alimony payment will need to be determined, as will how long the payments should continue.
Property division involves splitting up the assets collected during marriage and all outstanding debts that still exist. The court will divide marital assets in an equitable manner.
Legal and court procedures: Navigating the legal process in Cabarrus County will require a deep understanding of local laws and regulations that are designed to support divorces within the state.
A divorce lawyer will know when to file certain paperwork, what deadlines need to be met, and how to pursue a divorce agreement that benefits you. Having a divorce lawyer can help to ensure you are prepared for each step, potentially helping to alleviate some of the anxiety you may be feeling.
Parental rights: Discussions about parental rights involve more than determining where the children will live, which is known as physical custody. Legal custody must also be determined. Parents with legal custody have the right to make important decisions for the child in the future, such as those involving their education and medical care.
The court will try to find a solution that strikes a balance between prioritizing the developmental needs of children and not violating anyone’s parental rights.
Family dynamics: Another topic that will likely be discussed is how the family dynamics will operate in the new structure moving forward. These discussions can involve making decisions about what a co-parenting arrangement would look like, how to handle family events, and what strategies could be the most advantageous at helping a child transition into their new family structure.
All of these discussions are crucial to maintaining as healthy of an environment as possible for not only the children impacted by the divorce but for each partner as well.
