Why a prenup should be part of your wedding preparations

It used to be that prenuptial agreements were drawn up only by the rich and famous where one or both people had considerable assets to protect. Now many couples of all income levels in Pennsylvania and throughout the country draw up prenups before heading down the aisle. A prenup can help ensure that assets are protected no matter what happens to the relationship down the line, and that one person is not saddled with the other's debts.

Woman denied divorce over lack of evidence of marriage

A very strange case in Pennsylvania has left one woman without the ability to get divorced, even though she wants to, because there is not enough evidence that she and the man whom she called her husband were married. They had never gone through an official wedding ceremony, instead deciding to use a common law marriage. While this is not something that Pennsylvania recognizes any longer, she alleges that it was done before that change to the laws in 2005.

Advantages of collaborative law methods during your divorce

You may have heard about the idea of collaborative divorce, but with all of the information out there about different divorce methods, how do you choose the right one for your situation? Collaborative divorce is just one way to complete the property division process and negotiate other agreements for child custody, child support and spousal support. This method has some advantages over traditional litigation; namely, it is less expensive and time-consuming. If you are a Pennsylvania couple who is anticipating an uncontested or amicable divorce, the collaborative approach might be for you.
