Child custody is one of the most troublesome issues for people who are divorcing. Who will the children spend most of their time living with? What do you do about holidays and vacations? Who has the decision making power when it comes to finding a school or choosing a doctor? What happens if one parent needs to move because of a job? These are common decisions for all families and can be some of the toughest for divorcing parents.
In North Carolina, the courts have jurisdiction over children until they reach the age of 18. That means that custody issues can arise long after a divorce is final. As circumstances change, one parent may find it necessary to change the terms of a custody arrangement.
The Palmé Law Firm, P.A., can help you find answers to these tough questions. Whether through mediation or taking it to court, we'll work hard to resolve custody disputes. If circumstances change because of relocation, substance abuse or any number of other problems, we can help you to find a new custody arrangement that will be better for your children and for you. Raleigh divorce lawyer, Steve Palmé, will help you work through custody issues at the time of your divorce and beyond.
Interstate and International Child Custody
In our society, people have become increasingly mobile and often find it necessary to relocate to another state or even another country because of work or family demands. Interstate custody disputes and even international custody problems are becoming more and more common. Interstate custody problems are even more complex than the already difficult issues faced by parents who both live in North Carolina. An additional set of statutes setting out rules on which state can enter a custody order, whether the state you live in can change an existing custody order, and the procedures that you need to follow to enforce an order you already have make it difficult even for experienced attorneys to determine how to unravel interstate custody problems. Steve Palmé has extensive experience with interstate custody problems. The Palmé Law Firm, P.A., has represented clients from all over the United States in North Carolina family Courts. Whether you currently live in Virginia, Florida, California, New York, Hawaii or any other state in the U.S.A., if either you or the other parent resided in North Carolina at some point in time, you may need to address your custody issues in a North Carolina court. Contact The Palmé Law Firm to get answers on how to deal with your interstate custody issues.
International custody issues can be the most difficult, expensive and time-consuming problems a parent will face. Trying to get action from a foreign government or even just figuring out how to prevent another parent from fleeing the United States can be monumentally difficult. Call us today to help you find answers to these questions.
