Man received notice to pay child support

Non-custodial parents in Pennsylvania who are expected to pay child support know they have certain laws by which they have to abide. Those laws have been set in place to ensure children are provided the basic necessities, usually consisting of food, clothing, medical needs and educational requirements. A man in another state got a shock when he received a letter claiming he owed child support to his estranged wife because of a long-time law.

Foster parents run into legal roadblocks with child custody case

Child custody laws are mandated to help ensure the best interests for the children. Who can take the best care of the child in question is one of the main questions the court has to answer when deciding a child custody placement. Pennsylvania parents in the process of adoption may be interested in a case between two foster parents and the Choctaw Indian Nation.

Sometimes, it is not just the everyday, ordinary non-custodial parents who have problems paying child support. There are reasons when even high-profile, celebrity parents struggle to meet all the financial demands on them, no matter how much money they make. Pennsylvania parents may be interested to discover that Charlie Sheen is requesting that his monthly child support payments of $55,000 to his ex-wife be reduced.

Criminal trial for man accused of not paying child support

Child support is very important to a Pennsylvania custodial parent and his or her children.

Financial decisions may differ for divorce after 50

Divorce is difficult at any age, but it seems that now more than ever, adults over 50 are going their separate ways. Pennsylvania residents may be interested in a report on this trend that states most women are no longer dependent on their husbands for financial well-being in the retirement years, as most women are in the work force and have been able to build their own nest eggs. When dependent children are no longer in the picture, more and more older adults are no longer feeling the need to stay with their spouses. Even if each spouse earns a healthy pay check, there still will be financial consequences to a divorce that will need to be addressed.
