Can you use child support money to buy your kids gifts?

When you decided to file a petition in a Pennsylvania court because you no longer wished to stay married to your spouse, you may have worried about how your decision would affect your children. Like many parents who divorce, you may also have been greatly concerned about finances. Perhaps, you plan to request child support but aren't really sure what the laws and regulations are that govern such matters.

Difficult ex-spouses and co-parenting challenges

Some parents in Pittsburgh may face a difficult challenge after divorce. They may be co-parenting with an ex-spouse who is manipulative and creates conflict. Parents may need to learn to step back and set healthy boundaries. It can help if they remember that their focus should be on the children.

Parenting at a distance

When parents in Pennsylvania divorce, a top priority for both individuals is maintaining a strong relationship with their children. Complicating matters is the necessity, in some situations, for one or both parents to relocate such that their homes are a significant distance from each other. The noncustodial parent may become particularly anxious about maintaining a parental presence in his or her children's lives.

Life insurance for estate planning and divorce

Going through a divorce in Pennsylvania can be stressful. It can put a strain on a person's mental, emotional and financial state. Some of the stress of divorce is unavoidable as it is a process that impacts nearly every area of a person's life. It is possible, though, to mitigate some of the stresses, especially those that are related to finances. People who are considering or going through a divorce might reduce the financial burden by using life insurance.
