Could states take steps to safeguard visitation rights?

Many Pennsylvania noncustodial parents understand the struggles of being a parent after a divorce. Visitation with the children can seem like water in a desert for a parent that wants to remain as much a part of their lives as possible. Unfortunately, short of taking the custodial parent back to court on contempt allegations, few safeguards exist to ensure that noncustodial parents get to spend time with their children.

Losing sight of what is important in a divorce can be costly

When a Pennsylvania couple is at the end of their marriage, the relationship has often deteriorated to the point where the parties are, at least initially, unable to get along. If the couple is not careful, the divorce proceedings can quickly become a battleground. A couple may spend a substantial amount of time and money arguing with each other and can quickly lose sight of what is important.

Can divorce mediation be saved with a simple apology?

When the idea of ending a Pennsylvania marriage belongs only to one spouse, the feelings of resentment, anger and hurt felt by the other party can influence how the divorce proceedings progress. Attempting to settle the couple's issues using divorce mediation may be impossible in this situation. Only when the couple is able to reach an even temporary truce does the possibility of an amicable split arise.

A Pennsylvania divorce may be better for the kids

Many Pennsylvania couples come to the realization that they are no longer in love and their marriage has run its course. If there are children involved, parents face the dilemma between staying together for the sake of the children or getting a divorce. Ending a marriage is a difficult choice, but could prove to be better for the children in the long run.
