What is parental alienation?

If you are going through a divorce in North Carolina, you should be aware of the signs of parental alienation. This phenomenon is the intentional separation of the children from one parent for the purpose of punishing him or her. Parents who are attempting to alienate their children from the other often try to disrupt contact between that parent and the children as much as possible. They use manipulative tactics such as making derogatory comments about the other parent and even forbidding the children to talk about him or her. Some children who experience this indoctrination develop unwarranted hatred for the targeted parent, and they usually believe they have formed this negative opinion alone, rather than through an outside influence. 

Early signs of an impending divorce

Circumstances change, people change, and sometimes a marriage relationship comes to an end. It may be helpful for couples in North Carolina to recognize the early signs of an unhealthy marriage relationships in order to resolve the issues, or in some cases, to prepare emotionally for an impending divorce.

Truck accidents can happen to the best of us

You take a risk heading out, and that's when you hear it: "CRACK!" The tail end of your vehicle crumples, and you find yourself in a serious truck accident.

Recovering from drug addiction after prison

Drug addiction is a prevalent problem throughout the country, and North Carolina is no exception. According to Deutsche Welle, prison inmates may still have access to drugs during incarceration. In addition, the monotony of prison life, especially with the prospect of many years left to serve, may become emotionally overwhelming. For these reasons, rehabilitation programs are essential, starting in prison. Programs which have high standards of discipline and work ethic may help inmates focus their energy on recovery rather than addiction and despair. Transition management, which is positive, intentional interaction between inmates and social workers, may also help foster a smoother transition into society for drug offenders.

Tips for an effective prenuptial agreement

Entering the phase of engagement and marriage is exciting for most couples in North Carolina. However, even in the midst of high emotions and anticipation of a wonderful future, it is important to maintain a level-headed approach to personal finances and assets. For this reason, it may be prudent to have a prenuptial agreement. Since this topic may be awkward, Entrepreneur offers some tips on how to discuss it with a future spouse without damaging the relationship. The most important factor is honest communication between partners. Discussing the possibility of a prenup early in the engagement may ease the tension of bringing it up down the road. Additionally, both partners should have an equal say in what assets they would like to claim, and the agreement should be drafted jointly. Working collaboratively to formulate a plan that works for both makes the agreement feel more neutral, rather than an attack on one partner.
