Seeking child support payments from Social Security benefits

Some Pennsylvania custodial parents have difficulty obtaining the child support money that they were awarded. In some cases, the custodial parent may be able to collect back payments from other resources, including the noncustodial parent's Social Security benefits.

Non-custodial mothers less likely to pay child support

Pennsylvania parents may be under the impression that fathers are not granted physical custody very often. In reality, there are more custodial fathers than the general public perceives. In 2011, 18.3 percent of custodial parents were fathers, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Despite fewer fathers than mothers being awarded custody, fathers are more likely to be stiffed child support payments from non-custodial mothers.

Splitting artistic property in a Pennsylvania divorce

An artist who creates a new work generally owns the copyright to that work. This means that the artist alone can make money from it in the future. However, in a divorce case, any copyrights owned by the artist may need to be shared with the other spouse. In some cases, this means agreeing to put a value on work produced during the marriage whether it is up for sale or not.

The effects of bankruptcy on child support

Pennsylvania parents who pay child support and who are filing for bankruptcy cannot have their obligations discharged as part of the process. If a change in circumstances has made it impossible for them to keep up with child support payments, then they need to go to court and file a motion for modification of the child support order. However, this will not affect any amounts that are in arrears, which will still need to be paid.
