6 ways to ensure the validity of a prenuptial agreement

"To a Mouse" is a poem written by Robert Burns in 1785. In this poem, he said, "The best laid schemes of mice and men go often askew, and leave us nothing but grief and pain, for promised joy." If you're one of the many individuals who've signed a prenuptial agreement, only to have a court invalidate the document in divorce court, then you are too familiar with the sentiments of this poem.

Many prenuptial agreements lay in ruin as ineffective wastes of time, but this doesn't need to happen with yours -- if you create it and execute it in the right way.

Interracial child custody situations don't have to be difficult

Interracial relationships can produce interracial children. When the parents aren't in a relationship any longer, the child becomes the subject of a child custody case.

If you have a biracial child and are facing a child custody case, you will likely find that your case isn't handled any differently from any other child custody case. Here are a few things that you should think about when it comes to child custody involving a multiracial child. 

What rights do grandparents have when their children divorce?

You love your children and want them to have happy lives. You also love your grandchildren and want to have a positive, ongoing relationship with each of them. Unfortunately, your child's behavior during a divorce could result in issues with maintaining your relationship with your grandchildren.

Typically, the courts in North Carolina seek to arrange custody with the best interests of the child in mind. Generally that means ensuring continued, healthy interactions with both parents. In some cases, such as estrangement, abuse or chemical dependence, however, the courts will choose to terminate or temporarily suspend a parent's rights to custody or visitation. When that happens to your child, you could find yourself unable to see or even speak with your grandchildren.
