Misconception: divorce harms children

In divorce cases in Pennsylvania and anywhere else in the country, matters are often made more complicated when the best interests of a child or multiple children must be considered. Parents may have to set aside any tensions they feel toward one another, and work together to settle issues in a manner that will most benefit their children.

Supermodel works out child support agreement

Coming to an agreement on child support during a child custody case can often be a difficult and stressful matter, as many divorced or divorcing Pennsylvania couples may know firsthand. This is especially so when there are harsh feelings between the parents or other parties involved such as new spouses. These child support agreements often come late, after much debating in and out of court, and may stand to further stress relationships among a separated family.

Separation brings divorce more often than reconciliation

Nearly every child who sees their parents separate holds onto that dream that they will eventually see them together again. Many couples who find themselves separating may even hold this hope that they or their partner can resolve the issues between them. However, these couples often find that marriage is not meant for them and do end up moving toward divorce rather than getting back together. In fact, 79 percent of couples who separate in Pennsylvania and across the country end up divorcing.

Soldiers to be happy about child custody law changes in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania soldiers likely have a lot of gratitude toward one state senator. This woman was inspired to create a bill ensuring that no judge could change a child custody arrangement whose parent is an active-duty member of the military. She found inspiration when she heard of one set of grandparents not being allowed to see their grandson while their son was serving his country overseas in Iraq.

Primary custody: Single-father families increasing

Families headed by single fathers are, according to reports that look into trends of single fathers, the fastest growing household in the United States. In Pennsylvania and across the country, more and more fathers have primary custody and are raising their children after divorce, rather than just widowhood, as was the most common condition of single fatherhood in the past. However, these households are still at a low percentage compared to other households and are still not seeing as much assistance as single mother households do.
