Deion Sanders divorce: Pilar fights for child support, annulment

Pennsylvania readers likely recall the football exploits of Deion Sanders, the former NFL star who is also enshrined in the Hall of Fame. He and his wife Pilar have been fighting through divorce proceedings to end their 13 year marriage. While battles over a prenuptial agreement executed in 1998 continue unabated, the latest skirmish was about child support.

Pennsylvania couples who divorce can still work together

According to the Census Bureau, there are nearly four million businesses owned by husband and wife teams. This number is significant to the area of divorce in light of the high rates of divorce seen throughout the nation, and the potential impact that divorce has on a family business. Pennsylvania couples may find it challenging to handle business and divorce matters in tandem, though it is possible.

Pennsylvania child custody disputes helped by modern technology

Modern technology has made its impact on divorce and child custody in Pennsylvania. The seminal movie about child custody from the 1970s, Kramer vs. Kramer, portrayed the struggles of parents in an environment where the mother was typically awarded child custody, and the father was relegated to weekend walks in the park and ice cream cones. Now, courts across the country are more focused on meaningful shared custody. Such an arrangement virtually compels parents to remain in communication, even if they are less than enthusiastic about doing so.

Collaborative divorce in Pennsylvania: Is it for you?

We have written on this blog in the past about alternative dispute resolution options such as divorce mediation or a collaborative divorce. These alternatives to the typical divorce process in Pennsylvania may be a good fit for those couples who are able to keep important lines of communication open. A collaborative divorce, in particular, offers couples a means of avoiding litigation and staying out of the court room.
