Separating finances in a divorce

When Pennsylvania couples get divorced, one of the most complex tasks that they will need to complete is separating out their finances.

Supervised visitation is typically ordered if a parent has a history of abusive or otherwise harmful behavior.

Pennsylvania parents in relationships that have become violent may face co-parenting challenges after a divorce. How this plays out depends in part on what kind of violence is occurring.

3 tips for running a business together after divorce

If you have a thriving business, one question you might have is how you can continue working with your ex-spouse after a divorce. For some people, it's simply not possible because of conflicts, but for many, it is possible to remain business partners in the best interests of the business itself.

Fathers can benefit from co-parenting agreements

For Pennsylvania fathers of young children, divorce can be a scary thought, not only due to the end of a once-loving relationship but for its impact on their relationships with their kids.
