Guidance on North Carolina Visitation Custody

North Carolina law protects parental rights. Ultimately, the courts operate under the principle that the best interests of the of the child must be reached.

Rather than going to court, many parents opt to reach settlement through collaborative family law and mediation until a solution is found that is acceptable to both parties. Since parents ultimately have the best understanding of their children and of their own family dynamics, seeking to avoid court may allow space for an amicable settlement to be reached.  

Whatever your preferences or situation, reach out to Blackwell & Edwards for guidance on North Carolina visitation custody laws.  We’re a trusted child custody law firm throughout Fayetteville, Fort Bragg, and Cumberland County.
