Don't think of divorce in terms of winners and losers

When your marriage comes to an end in North Carolina, it can prompt a lot of complicated emotions, including shock, resentment and anger. It may be second nature to try to "win" at the divorce by coming out of it better than your spouse, but we at The Law Office of L. Bryan Smith regard this as an attitude that is both unhealthy and counterproductive. According to Forbes, divorce is not a matter of winners or losers. Even if it were, most people who go through a divorce would probably say that their ex got the better end of the deal. 

Hospital locked down due to custody dispute

Most in Wilmington might say that child custody disputes are private family matters in which outside parties have to right to become involved in. Yet what happens if a custody battle spills outside of the walls of the home and ends up inadvertently involving others? Feuding parents might even look for opportunities outside of the home to confront each other or even abduct their children from their other parent. Schools, shopping centers and other public venues may often provide the perfect forum for such incidents. 

Don't forget about retirement plans in your divorce settlement

You may already feel as though you are living in chaos as you progress through the divorce process. Your future remains uncertain, and you struggle to figure out which way to turn. Even in an amicable divorce, the emotional and physical changes happening are often unnerving.
