Dealing with a business during divorce proceedings

A Pennsylvania business owner might be concerned about the future of the company if divorce enters the picture. Although a prenuptial agreement might be used prior to marriage to safeguard one's company, growth during the marriage might create a situation in which one's spouse might be entitled to an interest in the company in the case of a divorce. The dramatic scenarios that often make their way into national news don't imply that a business will be torn apart just because the marriage ends. It is important, however, to plan carefully.

New regulations will let inmates pause their child support

New regulations announced by the Obama administration will make it possible for some parents who are incarcerated to pause their child support payments while they are in prison. The regulations are scheduled to be implemented in 2017 and have drawn objections from some Republican lawmakers.

Custody and visitation with special circumstances

As some Pennsylvania residents know, rape victims are sometimes forced to interact with their rapists if a child is conceived during the rape. This is due in part to an absence of rules that regulate such interaction in about 15 states. Others do so, leaving the woman open to interaction with the child's father. This failure to adequately protect the mother and child has been recently addressed by Congress.

Detecting fraud and asset concealment in divorce

Most Pennsylvania couples who are going through a divorce will not have to worry about financial fraud, but in a small number of cases, hiding or even destroying assets can be a problem. In some divorces, something known as dissipation may occur. This is when a spouse spends or ruins assets. It might include allowing a house to fall into a foreclosure, destruction of personal property or selling items at a loss. Dissipation can also include transferring money into the accounts of others. An individual might lie to family members and claim their spouse is taking money from the account to get them to unwittingly participate in this type of fraud.
