Child custody is determined by what is in the the best interests and welfare of the child. In making the determination North Carolina Courts consider a plethora of relevant factors including but not limited to which parent can provide the most stable environment for the child, acts of domestic violence between the parties, the safety of the child, safety of either party from domestic violence and preference of the child. At times this requires work with experts such as psychologists and psychiatrists to determine which parent will be the best custodial parent for the children. As a child matures, his or her wishes are considered by the court, and often the judge will speak to a mature child in chambers and consider their wishes. Joint custody has become much more popular and many parties settles along those terms and therefore share in the decision making process. Obviously courts seek to resolve disputes amicably, but often this is not possible and therefore significant litigation is required.

In North Carolina, Child Support is dependent on the needs of the child, but generally the courts apply a numeric formula. Moreover, unless circumstances otherwise warrant, the father and mother are primarily liable for the support of a minor child. Every Child deserves to enjoy the same lifestyle they had when their parents were married. Child support orders attempt to make this possible. Just because two adults decide to divorce, your children should not suffer because your marriage ended.
