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.

Original terms of a divorce agreement may need changing

When two Pennsylvania parents decide to divorce, they may have differing ideas on the stipulations attached to the terms of their separation.
