Interesting findings on divorce after study

Couples in Pennsylvania get divorced for any number of reasons. While the motives for a divorce vary, a study suggests there are actually prime times during the year when couples go through with filing for the dissolution of their marriage. This 14-year study found that divorce petitions are highest during the months of March and August.

Non-payment of child support results in legal hassles

Many custodial parents in Pennsylvania know that it is extremely important to get financial support when trying to raise their children. Some parents know that if child support is not received, there could be lapses in being able to provide clothing, medicine or even food for their little ones. Parents who have been ordered by the court to help in the provision face consequences if they do not uphold their child support agreements.

New child support payment option available for some families

Although there are several options available, some non-custodial parents in Pennsylvania occasionally have problems when trying to make their financial support payments. They may have the money set aside for the amount of child support but no easy way to get the money where it needs to be. There are other states that have begun offering their residents a chance to pay their child support through electronic providers.

Man legally bound to pay child support for girl who is not his

When non-custodial parents in Pennsylvania make support payments, they have reasonable expectations in most cases that the child whom they are supporting is theirs and that they will have some type of established visitation schedule. Imagine a significant amount of child support taken out of a person's pay check for someone else's child. A man in another state is living a nightmare and wants to make others aware of what could happen under similar circumstances.
