Fathers' rights issues advancing in Pennsylvania and elsewhere

Fathers' rights is a growing area of family law in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States. Traditionally, issues concerning fathers' rights received little attention in a significant number of jurisdictions across the country. When parents divorced or separated, any minor children almost always ended up in the sole custody of the mother with the father was relegated to weekend visitations and a hefty child support payment. The times, however, are definitely changing.

Be careful when badmouthing an ex in a divorce settlement

When going through any type of emotional stress, Pittsburgh residents are just as likely as anyone else to want to confide in a friend. The ability to verbalize negative feelings can help one come to terms with what they are feeling. However, in delicate cases such as divorce settlements, laying one's feelings for other people to ponder may not always be the wisest decision.

How would international child custody be decided in Pittsburgh?

Arrangements of child custody can be a point of contention between a lot of divorcing parents. Having to come around to the idea of sharing a child between two households, or giving up full parenting rights to a child can be a hard one to grasp. These child custody agreements can be even more difficult for parents who don't live in the same place, like Pittsburgh, and even more still for parents who might be living in entirely different countries.

Misconception: divorce harms children

In divorce cases in Pennsylvania and anywhere else in the country, matters are often made more complicated when the best interests of a child or multiple children must be considered. Parents may have to set aside any tensions they feel toward one another, and work together to settle issues in a manner that will most benefit their children.
