Bartolo Colon in child support battle

According to the news, the latest celebrity to appear in family court is major league pitcher Bartolo Colon. Pennsylvania residents might be interested to learn that he was recently sued for child support in a case where both parties were originally listed as anonymous on sealed court documents. When Colon decided he was not going to use outside legal counsel and instead represent himself in the child support case, his involvement in the lawsuit was made public.

Programs available to provide assistance with child support

Many Pennsylvania parents who have sole custody of their children know how hard it is to run a household on just one pay check, and they count on the financial support of the non-custodial parents to provide decent lives for their children. Non-custodial parents who are financially able to pay child support, but fail to do so, may suffer the consequences of wage garnishment or even face jail time. However, there are parents who want to pay child support but are unable because of the lack of income.

Child custody court decisions not always a given

Pennsylvania mothers may be interested to learn of a recent demonstration that was held in front of a courthouse in a neighboring state. Women were protesting in an attempt to make others aware of a problem fairly recurrent in child custody judgements in the area. Many people may think that judges always rule for the mother in a child custody hearing, but these women say that guess would be wrong.

Child custody case emerging between father and surrogate

Surrogacy can be a wonderful experience for two people who desperately want children but who are not able to physically bring them into the world. There have been many stories of happy cases where everything worked as those involved planned from the beginning. However, there are other cases where child custody issues have become a problem. Pennsylvania residents may be interested in one such story of a child custody fight between the surrogate and the father of the children to whom she gave birth.
