Occupations and divorce

North Carolina residents who are married or have plans to get married in the future should know that their occupation may be a factor in how likely they are to get a divorce. According to information collected in a 2015 American Community Survey, individuals with jobs that require working at night or a great deal of travel tend to have the highest rates of divorce in the United States.

Creating rules for two homes after a divorce

North Carolina parents who are going through a divorce will have to figure out a co-parenting agreement. One of the challenges families face is dealing with two different sets of house rules. While this may not seem like a big deal, having different standards in each home can be confusing for children.

Tips for co-parenting with a difficult former spouse

Parents in Charlotte who are divorced might struggle in co-parenting with a former spouse. However, if the conflict is largely between the parents and not the result of serious problems such as domestic abuse, one parent might be able to take action to improve the situation.

A legal separation can make your divorce easier

If you are thinking about ending your marriage, you may be wondering if you should have a legal separation in place while your divorce is in process. While some couples separate for a time and either move forward with a divorce or try to reconcile, these are usually not cases of legal separation. When you opt for a legal separation, you will have to obtain a court approved agreement that details the terms of the separation.

Spousal support payments can be tax-deductible

It can be important for North Carolina divorcing spouses who will be paying alimony to pay close attention to tax law. By arranging to treat alimony in specific ways in the divorce settlement, spousal support will be recognized as tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes. Because the requirements can be specific, alimony deductions can be the subject of disputes. However, there are methods that divorced taxpayers can use to make sure they meet the federal guidelines.
