No one is immune to the ravages of divorce

The phrase "'Til death do us part" goes by the wayside in so many marriages today. Because they are in the limelight, it seems divorce hits celebrities at a higher rate than other people. Even those who have been married for a number of years do not seem to make it until death parts them. Pennsylvania hip-hop fans may be interested to learn that Mary J. Blige is looking to divorce her husband of 13 years.

More grandparents seeking legal custody of grandchildren

When parents are unable, or in some cases unwilling, to take care of their children, many grandparents step into the role of caregiver. Some of these people who have agreed to take on their grandchildren may not always be physically or financially able, yet they step up anyway and petition for legal custody to keep their young loved ones together as a family and out of the foster system. Pennsylvania grandparents may be interested in learning of a couple who is fighting a legal custody battle with the state in which they and their grandchildren live.

U.S. Marine father taken to court for child support

When two parents end their marital relationship, there are many things to consider as they part ways. One of the most important is the children they have and the amount of child support the non-custodial parent will need to pay each month to provide a sustainable way of life for those children. Pennsylvania parents may be interested in a recent ruling by another state's Supreme Court that there is no time limit to collect child support, no matter the age of the child.

Former basketball pro seeks reduction in child support

Pennsylvania parents know that celebrities who have fathered or given birth to children are often expected to provide a higher level of financial care after a divorce or separation, simply because their earning potential is usually higher than that of most other people. A former basketball star is requesting that the amount of child support he has been paying the mother of his child be lowered because he no longer has the income he once did. Glen Rice, who played for the New York Knicks several years ago, wants to reduce his child support payments by more than half.
