Father could be jailed over child custody case

It is common for parents to disagree over the care and decisions of children. When parents do not live together or are not in a unified co-parenting relationship, it is understandably easy to disagree on the ways a child should be raised. Often, families must seek the advice and assistance of a family law attorney in Pennsylvania to intervene in child custody or support issues. As in one custody case in a nearby state, cases can be contentious and complicated.

Man sues mother for father's right to unborn child

Thousands of babies are born in Pennsylvania every year, but not all of them are born into happy, unified parents or families.

Individuals considering a high asset divorce may find comfort in the advice of an experienced family law attorney and the advice of someone who has also experienced hurt and pain.

What factors may predict a high asset divorce?

Sometimes, the differences that couples merge together are difficult to overcome. Couples considering a high asset divorce in Pennsylvania may be interested to learn that studies show that there may several things that will predict the likelihood of a divorce.

How can an high asset divorce affect a child's college plans?

Many children in Pennsylvania aspire to attend college following their high school graduation. While most parents would agree that a college education is a significant benefit to their child's future, it is often difficult to keep it in mind when negotiating a high asset divorce. Because children's college education is often an afterthought during divorce negotiations, many college students of divorced parents often finance the majority of tuition themselves.
