Fathers want laws changed as they seek child custody

When two parents decide to no longer live together and the court is petitioned to decide which parent gets primary child custody, more often than not it will go to the mother. In cases where the separation is less than amicable, there are times that the father is legally all but left out of a child's life. Pennsylvania fathers dealing with problems as they fight for child custody may be interested in a movement by fathers in another state.

Child support not a current problem for pro football player

Non-custodial parents who fail to provide any or enough child support seem to be never-ending problems for both custodial parents and the children concerned. Pennsylvania fathers may be glad they are not in the same child support situation as professional football cornerback Antonio Cromartie. He could be cut from his team at any time, leaving him struggling to pay a staggering amount of support to the mothers of his children.

Grandmother is pursuing legal custody of four grandchildren

Grandparents who are choosing to pursue legal custody of their grandchildren have been topics of increasing significance in the past few years. Pennsylvania residents may be interested in a study conducted a few years ago that showed the number of children living with a grandparent was up by 3 percent compared to 20 years before. As further proof of the increasing percentage, one grandmother in another state is looking to gain legal custody of four of her grandchildren.

Happy ending in child custody battle

Pennsylvania residents may think of warring spouses when the subject of child custody cases is introduced. However, a recent child custody case was not the typical news-grabbing headline of two high-profile celebrities. Rather, an 11-year-old girl celebrated the end of last year by becoming the child of a Naval retiree and his wife.
