No two Pennsylvania marriages are exactly the same; therefore, neither are any two divorces. When a couple chooses to divorce, they often encounter various challenges regarding child custody, property division or other issues that can make the entire process quite stressful. The good news is that there are support systems in place to help spouses minimize stress and maximize their changes of achieving fair and agreeable settlements.

There are different types of stress related to divorce. Stress related to financial matters or highly charged emotions are most common. However, one thing a spouse can do to keep stress levels low is focus on the ultimate goals at hand, which are often connected to protection of interests and building new lifestyles.

Sadly, protecting one’s interests can be difficult. If the other spouse is somehow impeding one’s parental rights or trying to gain the upper hand in property division proceedings by hiding assets, things can get messy in court. The latter is illegal, and there are definite counteractions that can be taken to rectify the problem. Seeking clarification of state laws can help a concerned spouse/parent determine a best course of action.
