Solider fights to regain child custody while deployed overseas

Custody battles in Pennsylvania and across the country are often argumentative and painful. Unfortunately, some parents do not feel that court-ordered custody arrangements are in the best interest of their child, making the process more difficult. One family in another state was recently disrupted by a temporary change in custody as a result of the primary parent's employment. 

Can I appeal a divorce court ruling?

You went through the dissolution of marriage process. You tried so hard to reach a settlement through negotiations in order to avoid going to court, but it just did not work out in the end. Your divorce case ended up going to trial and a judge had the final say on your settlement terms. You do not believe the final terms will serve your best interests in the long run, particularly in regard to your alimony order. What can you do?

High asset divorce: Alimony payments may change with new law

Pennsylvania couples who had become aware of possible changes in tax laws that impacted alimony payments may have been attempting to settle divorce agreements before the New Year. Fortunately, for many couples in the process of divorce, they have until the end of 2018 to finalize their divorce before the new laws will go into effect. Couples in the process of a high asset divorce may not be able to finalize prior to the end of 2018, considering the length of most divorces.

Weinstein's wife may file for high asset divorce

Most divorces in Pennsylvania are understandably difficult for anyone involved. Not only do they elicit emotional pain, but the dividing of property, wealth and the care of children can make the process exponentially more difficult. When a high asset divorce occurs, the process can be long and may require many legal discussions. Although no official filings have been made, Harvey Weinstein's wife announced her intentions to divorce her husband.

$37,000 a month child support payments challenged after marriage

When any divorce is processed in Pennsylvania, there are usually more things to separate and divide than many couples understand. Many choose to have a family law attorney to assist them throughout the process. Some couples have more wealth than others, making the process exponentially more difficult. As with any couple, legal disagreements like spousal and child support may continue for years. Investor Andrew Left recently challenged his former wife's child support payments after she married billionaire Alan Salzman.

Child custody dispute centers on radicalization claims

When most couples go before a Pennsylvania family court to argue over the care and custody of a shared child, their legal positions are relatively standard. One parent often feels that he or she is better able to provide the care and attention a child needs. In some cases, however, a parent makes assertions that are far outside the norm. Such is the case in a recent child custody case in which a mother claims that her former husband is attempting to radicalize her son during visitation time.

For millennials, property division is a part of wedding planning

Family law attorneys report that more and more young people are coming in for prenups prior to tying the knot. These young couples are serious about their commitment but also incredibly levelheaded about matters of financial responsibility and the risk of property division. Very often, drafting a prenup is simply another part of the wedding preparation checklist, for couples in Pennsylvania or elsewhere.

Same-sex parents still face child custody challenges

Most Pennsylvania residents are aware that the Supreme Court legitimized same-sex marriage several years ago. What many are not aware of is that parental rights and status were not expressly granted in that decision. That has left many same-sex parents facing an uphill battle when it comes to asserting their rights to remain closely connected with their child through a fair child custody determination.
