North Carolina considers giving judges more leeway (?) in child custody decisions where domestic violence may be an issue. What do you think? I think the merits of the plan are good, and I was unaware that if NC courts had evidence of domestic abuse they were unable to supersede their traditional powers. However, it also seems to open the door to the first party to claim domestic abuse.

Though the court is not supposed to consider who first files for divorce/custody, the CW says whoever files is in a slightly superior position. Could this translate into whoever first claims abuse as well?
