Popular HGTV show hosts possibly headed for divorce

Pennsylvania HGTV fans have now heard the news that "Flip or Flop" show hosts, Tarek and Christina El Moussa have been separated since last May. There has been no official word of divorce, but there are confirmations that they are each dating other people. Through their television show, their net worth has grown substantially, leaving people to wonder how the assets will be divided should a divorce actually happen.

Increased child support request by Sherri Shepherd's ex

When two Pennsylvania parents decide to divorce, they have to come to an agreement about who will get primary custody of their children or if they will share joint custody. One parent will be ordered by a judge to pay child support, even with shared custody. The child support amount is determined by several factors, but the most weight is carried by the income of each parent. Sherri Shepherd's ex-husband, Lamar Sally, is seeking an increase in the amount of child support she pays him for their child.

Father fighting for child custody will not give up

Most Pennsylvania parents can agree that the depth of love of a parent for his or her child can be astonishing, given some circumstances. An eight year child custody battle may soon be coming to an end as a father fights to raise his daughter. He was recently commended by a judge for never giving up in his emotionally and financially draining child custody quest.

Former NFL player behind in child support payments

Pennsylvania parents know there are several factors that determine the cost of raising a child. The basic needs may be close to the same rate but getting into the specifics of neighborhood, schooling, extracurricular activities and medical needs is where the amount varies between families. When the parents decide to separate and the topic of child support arises, the dollar amount decided by the parents or the courts has to take into consideration these and other expenditures. A former NFL football player may be held in contempt of court for his failure to pay the child support he apparently owes.

Legal help a necessity when marital problems lead to divorce

Most Pennsylvania couples enter their marriages believing they will truly last a lifetime. Divorce is often not a blip on their radars in the beginning. However, marriage is challenging and unless steps are taken to guard against them, problems could develop at some point down the road. When they do and both parties cannot seem to work through them, divorce may be the best choice.
