Could this child custody case affect Pennsylvania parents?

Pennsylvania residents may be interested to learn that judge has issued a ruling between a woman and her boyfriend in a child custody dispute of their three children. The judge ruled in favor of the boyfriend to retain physical child custody, with the mother having scheduled visitation rights. The boyfriend is the biological father of two of the children and has been the main male figure in the third child's life since she was a few months old.

Pennsylvania residents may be interested to learn the importance of differing state laws when it comes to child custody.

Father arrested after child custody dispute

Pennsylvania parents may be interested to learn of a child custody dispute that ended in an arrest for one parent.

Child custody dispute may be of interest to Pennsylvania parents

Pennsylvania parents involved in child custody disputes may find a recent story interesting. The father of a child has been charged with extortion after he would not return the child to the mother unless she signed a contract he had written in order to keep the two of them from further appearances in family court. He pleaded not guilty and was released, but he was told he could not contact the mother unless they were discussing child care arrangements and that he had to adhere to court orders received in 2013 when both parents sought legal assistance with child custody matters.

Pennsylvania learns that social media can hurt custody dispute

Social media is seen by some Pennsylvania parents as good, others as bad. In the case of one man entangled in a child custody dispute with the mother of his 1-year-old baby, it turned out to be detrimental. Legal counsel for the mother could have the ammunition it needs when seeking certain conditions in the child custody argument.

Police officer arrested for kidnapping in child custody case

When parents are in the midst of a child custody dispute, it is important to follow the correct legal procedures in resolving the dispute. This means following court orders, in Pennsylvania or in any other state. If a parent does not yet have custodial rights over a child, it is important to respect this status until the child custody matter is resolved.

Many Pennsylvania families awaiting end to child custody disputes

In 2010, the Pennsylvania legislature revised the state's laws regarding child custody. It is now necessary for an evaluation to be performed if the parent who wants custody of a child -- or anyone living with that parent -- has a criminal record. This requirement has created a backlog, and some families are waiting a year to have their child custody case heard.

Michael Jackson's mother embroiled in custody dispute

Most Pennsylvania residents know that, after Michael Jackson's death, his mother was given custody of his three children. Now, the children are at the center of a custody dispute between her and Debbie Rowe, the mother of Jackson's two oldest children. She is asking for custody not only of her two biological children, but also for guardianship of Jackson's youngest son.

Drs. Evans and Evans in child custody dispute

It has been said that divorce can bring out the worst in people. That may pale in comparison to what can happen in some child custody disputes. Pennsylvania fans of "Dr. 90210" may remember Dr. Brian Evans, a plastic surgeon, and Dr. Susan Evans, a dermatologist. The two doctors have been involved in a child custody dispute to modify their current custody arrangement that has recently intensified.

Admission of evidence in a Pennsylvania custody dispute

In states such as Pennsylvania that have no-fault divorce, except in certain circumstances, courts don't care about the parties' behavior or what led them to divorce court. In a custody dispute, however, a person's character, personal choices and bad behavior could indeed make a difference. Courts often have to decide what information is admissible in a custody hearing and what is not.
