Mother with history of alcohol abuse fights for child custody

Most Pennsylvania residents know that being a parent means taking responsibility to raise children to be productive members of society. A recent child custody case found a mother pleading with her state's Court of Appeals to allow her two daughters to be returned to her care. The mother had lost her child custody privileges because of numerous reports of alcohol abuse.

Child custody and asset division leads to appeal by mother

Those in Pennsylvania who have been through the trauma of divorce know there are many factors involved in the process, especially if children are involved. Child custody and child support are typically at the top of the list in these types of family law proceedings. One woman going through a bitter divorce recently lost her appeal on a child custody and support ruling.

Child custody battle gets heated with renovation star

Pennsylvania residents know that, while it does not seem to be the case in front of the camera, most TV personalities have problems just like the rest of the population. Making recent news is Nicole Curtis, host of HGTV's "Rehab Addict" in a child custody battle with the man who is the father of her 15-month-old son. The child custody case has lasted for the better part of a year after the father filed a paternity complaint.

Woman hits roadblock in receiving child support

Divorced parents in Pennsylvania know there can be many stressors before, during and after the divorce is final. One of the headaches for either parent is often the paying and receiving of child support. So many times, the non-custodial parent is blamed for not providing the child support amount that was accepted by the court. A recent report shows the blame may not always lie with the parent who has been designated to supply financial support.

Child custody issues at the center of courthouse rally

Fathers in Pennsylvania who are living apart from their children may be interested in a rally recently conducted by a few concerned fathers on the steps of a courthouse in another state. These men are trying to do their part to change some state-level regulations on child custody and the access they are given to their children on a regular basis. Even though there have been new laws passed pertaining to child custody issues, these men feel they still have to fight for equal time with their children.

Child custody court decisions not always a given

Pennsylvania mothers may be interested to learn of a recent demonstration that was held in front of a courthouse in a neighboring state. Women were protesting in an attempt to make others aware of a problem fairly recurrent in child custody judgements in the area. Many people may think that judges always rule for the mother in a child custody hearing, but these women say that guess would be wrong.

Foster parents run into legal roadblocks with child custody case

Child custody laws are mandated to help ensure the best interests for the children. Who can take the best care of the child in question is one of the main questions the court has to answer when deciding a child custody placement. Pennsylvania parents in the process of adoption may be interested in a case between two foster parents and the Choctaw Indian Nation.

Child custody bill campaigns for unique parenting arrangement

Divorced parents in Pennsylvania may be interested to learn of a bill that is being introduced in another state. This bill is expecting to help keep the number of malicious child custody battles to a minimum. The premise of the bill is to advocate shared custody between parents as opposed to primary or sole custody.

Parents fight for child custody over medical marijuana debate

Pennsylvania parents may have found that child custody battles are not always between two parents or other family members. Sometimes, the child custody fight is against a larger entity. One man and his wife are fighting a state for custody of their five children after the state removed the children nearly a year ago on accusations of child endangerment.

Happy ending in child custody battle

Pennsylvania residents may think of warring spouses when the subject of child custody cases is introduced. However, a recent child custody case was not the typical news-grabbing headline of two high-profile celebrities. Rather, an 11-year-old girl celebrated the end of last year by becoming the child of a Naval retiree and his wife.
