Abstract:
New legislation in 1987 brings some changes to family law in North Carolina. The Uniform Premarital Agreement Act does away with the limitations on non-property rights for pre-marital agreements, while the procedure for equitable distribution was altered to allow parties to file an action any time after separation. Two acts became effective this year to require income withholding for those delinquent in child support. Judges are also required to consider joint custody if either parent requests it. Several laws also affect the consent for adoption and placement of children under the age of six months. Lastly, legislation now provides a concrete definition for what constitutes domestic violence and how law enforcement makes arrests in these situations.

Crawley provides some guidelines for classifying martial debt in terms of when it was accrued and to whom it benefits if distributed jointly, how it can be valuated and distributed, as well as effect mechanisms for enforcing the division of such resources.
