Man risks going to jail if child support deposit is not paid

Each state, including Pennsylvania, has its own laws pertaining to child support payments. A man in another state is facing jail time if he does not make a payment of at least $500 toward the over $50,000 he owes in child support. The judge in the case has given him a month to come up with that payment, or he will go back to jail for 90 days.

Father charged with kidnapping in child custody case

Some parents will go to great lengths to be able to spend time with their children, especially if they feel child custody arrangements are not as they should be. Unfortunately, some have turned to kidnapping as a way to get that time with their young ones. Pennsylvania parents may be interested in a child custody case where a father is facing charges after allegedly kidnapping his son.

Grandparents granted temporary legal custody of children

When the relationship between two Pennsylvania parents dissolves, legal custody of the children is an issue that must be faced. Most often the arrangement is between the parents, but sometimes other family members are granted legal custody by the court. A recent case saw the court granting temporary legal guardianship of two children to their grandparents.

Child custody agreement violated as man tries to flee with child

A child's best interests, along with a number of other variables, are usually what mandate the conditions of a child custody order. The resulting arrangement is what both the custodial and non-custodial parties are expected to follow. Pennsylvania parents may be interested to learn of a case where the child custody court order was outright violated.

Satisfactory ending to unusual child custody case

The terms of some Pennsylvania child custody cases are fairly routine. The judge determines which parent will be the custodial parent, and a visitation schedule and financial support amounts are set for the non-custodial parent to follow. However, an unusual child custody case has recently come before a judge in another state.
