Does Kate Winslet have an unfair parenting arrangement?

Although we certainly don't know for certain how movie star Kate Winslet has arranged her parenting time with the fathers of her children, it would appear that she has exclusive custody of the children. There are certainly parents in Pennsylvania with sole custody of their children, but the more common arrangement is for shared custody. With shared custody, both parents have some time with the children, which is often in the children's best interests.

When an international ex doesn't respect a child custody order

There are numerous benefits that come along with a multicultural household. Children not only learn about the United States and being an American by living and going to school in Lancaster, but they can also learn about their other parent's culture by using their parent's first language, visiting their parent's home country and staying in contact with family members abroad. When multicultural couples break up, however, those benefits need not be lost. As long as both parents respect the Lancaster County judge's child custody order, the children can continue to reap the benefit of having diverse parents.

Property division is a complex part of divorce

Anyone in Reading who has gone through a divorce can tell you that it isn't easy. Not only can some spouses be vindictive or even just uncooperative, but it can also be emotional to end a marriage, even if you were the one who initiated the divorce. While many people in Pennsylvania may think that the easiest part of divorce will be the property division, they would be sorely mistaken. Even though Pennsylvania is an equitable distribution state, which means that property will be divided equitably, but not necessarily equally, it is how the property is divided that causes the most trouble.

Issues with child support? Pennsylvania parents have options

There are no recent statistics on unpaid child support, but the Office of Child Support Enforcement reported $108 billion in outstanding support payments in 2009. While some parents just refuse to pay, others are simply unable to. Fortunately, there are options in Pennsylvania for parents who cannot afford to make child support payments and those who are not receiving their payments.
