Women who avoid financial involvement often surprised in divorce

A report from a large wealth management firm has revealed that married women still tend to fall into traditional gender roles when it comes to long-term financial decisions and investing. Among married women, 56 percent reported leaving most financial affairs to their husbands. A chief strategy officer at the company called the hands-off approach financial abdication. When women stayed out of the loop about their marital finances, spousal death or divorce frequently involved financial surprises. Older Pennsylvania couples headed toward divorce may want to keep this in mind.

Why couples choose mediation

Pennsylvania residents who are getting divorced may be able to end their marriage with a negotiated settlement. Divorce mediation may be an alternative to litigation for those who want to come to an agreement through communication and understanding. The goal of mediation is to work with a neutral party to create an agreement that is fair and that adheres to state law. In many cases, mediation can be less expensive and take less time to complete compared to a lawsuit.

Federal system aims to enhance child support collection

One frequently used and successful tactic to enforce existing support orders is the use of wage garnishment or payroll deductions to process payments directly from an employee's paycheck.

Victims of abuse may face further methods of control

A victim of spousal abuse may face further confrontations with their abuser in the future. This is because many abusers follow a pattern of controlling behavior. Those with minor children from an abuser should be on guard for a possible custody challenge. Therefore, victims of abuse in Pennsylvania should not hesitate to seek legal and other assistance.
