Idaho reverses decision to reject child support bill

Pennsylvania parents who are having difficulty receiving their court-ordered child support payments may be pleased to learn that the state of Idaho has reversed its opposition to an international child support treaty. On May 18, the Idaho Legislature approved a set of federally-mandated child support rules that include the international treaty. Last month, legislators had rejected the bill amidst fears that participation in the international treaty could give rise to Islamic law in the U.S.

Child custody and international abductions

As Pennsylvania parents who have gone through a divorce may know, child custody disputes can often be contentious. In some cases, one parent, unwilling to share or lose custody, might decide to leave the United States with the child. According to the U.S. State Department, about 8,000 children were removed from the United States between 2008 and 2013 in violation of custody orders.

Protection of real estate and businesses from possible divorce

Although prenuptial agreements present a legal tool for establishing ownership of assets between married people in the event of a divorce, not all Pennsylvania couples with asset protection concerns have one. Other legal options, however, enable a person about to enter marriage to establish that certain assets, like real estate and businesses, are non-marital assets.

How a 401(k) is divided after a divorce

A person who is going through a high asset divorce in Pennsylvania may wonder how their 401(k) will be affected. Because a 401(k) is considered part of the marital assets, it may be divided in a few different ways. Proceeds from one spouse's 401(k) could be transferred to the recipient spouse's retirement plan, or the recipient spouse might be given a cash payment in one lump sum.
