Breaking up is hard to do -- and it can be even harder if you do not understand the legal basics of divorce in Pennsylvania. A variety of restrictions and regulations exist within the divorce process. If you are not aware of these limitations, you may find yourself struggling to leave the relationship. Ensure your success by keeping these divorce rules in mind.
Many Pennsylvania parents erroneously think that their parenting situation will become far simpler after they become a single parent. Child custody experts say that although you have eliminated one variable -- your ex-spouse -- you have added exponentially to the amount of work you must do to maintain the status quo in your family. This is why it is so important to develop a "cadence" to your co-parenting; both parents need and deserve assistance in raising the children, even if the adults no longer live in the same household together.
