Child custody in North Carolina is about putting children first

For parents who are ending their relationships or their marriages, child custody is likely one of the biggest worries. In the state of North Carolina, parents may be able to have peace of mind once they realize that one of the goals of the state's family court system is to ensure that the child's best interests come first. In fact, that is the family court system's main goal, and child custody is one of the principle tools judges use to ensure they reach that goal.

In a booklet for families that was produced by The North Carolina Child Custody and Visitation Mediation Program, the goals of the family court system are outlined. In the booklet, the focus is on using mediation. Mediation is seen by many as a way to look toward the future when making decisions about the fate of children after separation or divorce.

The booklet includes several recommendations that may help improve the mediation process. First, it suggests that parents focus on ensuring the best futures for their children and limiting focus on other topics that could become contentious, such as child support or property division. Agreements concerning those topics can be made outside of mediation with the help of both parties' attorneys. Second, it suggests approaching mediation with the belief that the process will work. In most cases, parents who really want to come to an agreement are able to do so.

If you are a parent in North Carolina and you would like to try to use mediation to come to a child custody agreement, it is a highly recommended option. Those who have questions about the pros and cons of mediation can get the answers they need from experienced family law attorneys. In addition, an attorney can coach a parent before a mediation session, giving that person an idea of what to expect and how to respond.
