Deployed father granted temporary reprieve from child support

Pennsylvania parents who pay or receive financial support may be interested in a recent ruling in another state's family law court. The father of two children was granted a temporary reprieve from making child support payments following an order for deployment through the Army National Guard. The case is unusual because the father will continue to receive pay while he is deployed, and his children will continue to require financial support.

Attorneys can help achieve a amicable high asset divorce

Pennsylvania residents contemplating ending a marriage may fear the pain, turmoil and upheaval of their life as well as the disturbance it may cause for any children or pets. Despite stereotypical cases of hostile high asset divorce cases, many couples achieve amicable separation of their married lives. Certainly, choosing the right family law attorney can help with the process.

Establish boundaries with an ex to protect your future happiness

The chance of divorce in a second marriage is even higher than the first, which makes the healing process essential for future happiness. Despite being legally divorced, many couples still interact with each other as they did when they were married, making it hard to shake off resentments, emotional patterns, and anger. If this pattern is not corrected after divorce, it will continue and often negatively impact any subsequent relationships you form with a new partner, your children, and stepchildren. So, what can you do to increase your chances of a successful second marriage? 

Does death of a parent end child support payments?

Following an unexpected death, the shock may make it difficult to process the changes that may result for surviving family members. In addition to settling the estate of a loved one and filing insurance claims, surviving family members often face the reality of surviving without a loved one's income contribution. The adjustment for some significant others and dependents can often be very difficult. Pennsylvania parents may be interested in one mother's suffering, following the sudden death of the alleged father of her child and whether or not his estate will continue child support payments. 

Estate planning and blended families

Have you moved on since your divorce and met someone new? If you have entered into a subsequent marriage, have you updated or had a whole new estate plan drafted? A new relationship after divorce is certainly reason to celebrate. But avoiding difficult conversations about end of life planning is a recipe for disaster in a blended family. 

Child custody considerations during divorce month

For many Pennsylvania families, the holidays are a time of being together and making memories. For others, it is a season that often emphasizes a couple's need or desire to move forward with the divorce process. This is one of the many reasons why divorce filings spike in January. If a couple is preparing to end their marriage, it may be helpful to go ahead and start considering important issues, such as child custody.

A couple of tips may help those headed for divorce

When people decide to marry, they may feel that they and their significant others are matches made in heaven. However, as time progresses and conflicts happen, they may start to second-guess their marriages. Eventually, they may end up pursuing divorce, during which they will have to tackle issues like property division. However, it may behoove them to take a couple of steps to address their relationship issues prior to going the divorce route in Pennsylvania.
