Father makes discovery after paying child support

Most Pennsylvania non-custodial parents follow through on the responsibility of financially providing for their children because they realize the importance of doing so. The custodial parent is obligated to take that child support and use it for food, medical and other needs required by the child. One man discovered some disturbing news after paying nearly $100,000 in child support.

Father owes sizeable amount in child support case

Pennsylvania parents who have custodial rights over their children know how important financial support is when raising those children. Non-custodial parents who do not pay child support are often sought by law enforcement. One man has been apprehended and  jailed after evading police and his ex-wife for five years. Officials say the man owes his ex over $200,000 in child support.

Father fights for child custody after girl adopted

Foster parents make themselves available to temporarily house a child who has been placed with them by the state's child and family services agency. The state through which the child is fostered maintains child custody, even when he or she is placed in a home. Pennsylvania parents may be interested in hearing that foster-turned-adoptive parents are fighting to have an adoption upheld in court after the biological father has sought to get her back.

One state is treating pets like kids in divorce proceedings

Couples in Pennsylvania who have made the often difficult decision to end their marriage also have other choices to make. Many divorce petitions include requests for dividing assets, child support and custody arrangements and alimony. One state has just become the first to require judges to consider the welfare of any pets owned by the couple when they make their final ruling on a divorce.
