Same-sex marriage in Pennsylvania

Same-sex couples in Pennsylvania may benefit from reviewing some of the information published by the ACLU to address many of the questions that are asked frequently. According to a U.S. District Judge's May 20 ruling, Pennsylvania will now recognize out-of-state same-sex marriages and will allow same-sex couples to get married in the state. The next day, the governor confirmed that he would decline to appeal the ruling.

High-asset divorce in Pennsylvania

When Pennsylvania couples divorce, the emotional stakes are often high. For those who are going through a high-asset divorce, the financial stakes pose an additional layer of stress and can involve hundreds of thousands of dollars as well as property. Determining how to equitably divide assets in such a case can be complicated and daunting.

How is child support calculated?

When calculating child support payments in Pennsylvania, courts calculate the net income of both parents. To determine a parent's net income, the monthly gross income is the starting point and then certain items are deducted. An average of at least six months is generally used when finding one's net income.

Property division in Pennsylvania divorces

Pennsylvania couples whose marriages are ending know too well that there are many issues that need to be considered. If the couple has one or more children, then the matters will include the determination of legal and physical custody as well as the amount of child support to be paid. In other cases there may be a question of whether one party will be required to pay spousal support. One issue that is universal, however, is the determination of property division.

Child custody in Pennsylvania

In Pennsylvania, custody encompasses two different forms. Legal custody refers to the ability of a parent to make major decisions for the child and may be either solely held by one parent or shared by both. Physical custody refers to with which parent the child will live most of the time. Like legal custody, physical custody can take different forms.
