Past-due child support after reaching majority age

Though specifics vary from case to case, in Pennsylvania most child support court orders require payments until the child reaches 18 years of age. If all of the payments are made, the case is typically closed. Where there is back support owed, however, the custodial parent may be able to collect it even after the child turns 18.

Court must approve child custody to make it enforceable

When Pennsylvania parents of young children go through a divorce, the family court will require a written parenting plan that describes the child custody schedule. People either reach terms for splitting the care of children through negotiation or litigation. Unmarried parents should also go through the process of establishing a court-approved child custody plan. After recognition by a court, the plan becomes a court order, which allows either parent to use the legal system to correct violations by the other party.

How to get along with the child's other parent after a divorce

A written parenting plan may be an effective way to help Pennsylvania parents remember to put their kids first after a divorce. It may help ensure that both of them take an active role in raising their children. When one decides to let the other raise a child on his or her own, it could lead to resentment on the part of the child both now and in the future.

Divorcing with kids requires empathetic legal counsel

Every day, throughout Pennsylvania and across the country, there are couples facing the struggle of navigating the troubled waters of divorce while still loving their children. It's no secret that many couples find it difficult to divorce without the process having negative effects on their kids.

Avoiding divorce mistakes that could cost thousands

In some Pennsylvania divorce cases, people agree to certain property division scenarios that cause them to miss out on thousands of dollars that they might have otherwise been entitled to receive. Some agree to these settlements because of not understanding how property and assets should be divided while others do so to just end their divorces as quickly as possible.
