Pennsylvania prenups may be challenged more often in divorce

Prenuptial agreements have long been thought to be unbreakable contracts between two people who are getting married.

Grandfather facing criminal charges in child custody dispute

Child custody cases are among the most emotionally charged and highly contentious legal matters handled by family law attorneys.

However, as one widely reported case demonstrates, allowing one's emotions to overrule their reason can lead to serious consequences.

Financial issues that typically arise in a Pennsylvania divorce

Divorce can be very expensive or cheap, depending on a number of factors. If the parties involved can agree on the terms, or work together to seek agreement on terms that both find acceptable, then the potential financial impact may be lessened. If you cannot agree on anything, and one party appears to be making the process as difficult as possible, the divorce could prove more costly. Assets, any minor children involved and debts owed all factor into the marital dissolution process. Those individuals in Pennsylvania that are confronting these issues have likely already learned of the potential financial pitfalls.
