Collaboration: Is there really a better way to divorce?

North Carolina couples facing divorce often dread the long, complicated process ahead. For many couples, the prospect of a long, contentious divorce is dreadful, but there may be a better way to walk through the emotional and stressful process of ending a marriage.

Collaborative divorce is a way that some couples can divorce without fighting it out in court. This option is more respectful, more peaceful and can be significantly less stressful that a contentious battle between two opposing parties. While a collaborative divorce can be a positive choice for many couples, it is not always the best choice for every couple.

Is filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy a good move?

One of the most frightening experiences you can have is realizing you can no longer survive financially in your current state. You may have found that your liabilities exceed your assets, through no fault of your own - for instance, perhaps the state of the economy or of your particular industry has negatively impacted your sales. Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a viable option for addressing your financial challenges in North Carolina.

Filing for bankruptcy may be the wisest thing you can do

Sometimes debts build up over time until one day when you look at your bills you have to look again because an unexpected red flag has just gone up. Overwhelming debt can also follow a car accident, job loss or other unanticipated crisis. Your natural reaction may be to work out a strict budget and immediately cut back on spending. While this is preferable to rushing out and getting a high-interest payday loan, a tight budget will not provide immediate relief. In fact, it may only slow your sinking.

Simplifying the Complexities of Personal Injury Laws in North Carolina

Personal injury law gives a person the right to go to a civil court to pursue legal remedies for an injury or any losses they incurred from an accident caused by another party's negligence. Even though legal procedures are similar nationwide, laws may vary state-to-state with each one having unique requirements of their own. If you have been injured or think you have grounds for personal injury litigation in North Carolina, there are a few key laws you need to remember when you are in the process of filing your claim.

Even wealthy rock stars make the mistake of not having a will

By now, everyone has probably heard that the international rock star Prince died in his studio in Minnesota in late April. That he died at the young age of just 57 may not have come as a great surprise to anyone who knows about the hard-living ways of entertainers in today's world. That he died without leaving a last will and testiment to properly dispense of his $300 million estate, however, should come as a surprise and disappointment to everyone.
