Divorce: Are legal issues affecting your children's health?

Many Pennsylvania households include children who are trying to adapt to new lifestyles. When parents decide to divorce, their decisions have significant impacts on their children's lives. Not only is it important to try to keep legal stress to a minimum for financial reasons and other adult-related matters, it is also critical to help kids cope in as healthy a manner as possible.

Understanding Pennsylvania divorce laws regarding assets

Legally severing marital ties is typically not without its challenges.

It is wise to seek clarification of state laws before heading to court.

Does your divorce plan include specific terms for summer time?

Many Pennsylvania parents get a bit stressed out when the school year begins to wind down and they must think ahead to their summer plans.

When you go through a challenging time in life, it often helps to have someone, such as a close friend or loved one, to lean on and to turn to for support.

This is especially true in divorce, which many Pennsylvania residents will likely go through before 2019 ends.

Divorce: Priority issues for co-parenting agreements

When couples end their marriages, they typically want to keep matters out of the court as much as possible. When a Pennsylvania spouse decides to divorce, he or she doesn't wish to get caught up in a seemingly endless round of litigation sessions.

Children are central focus of Tom Arnold's fourth divorce

Current data show that people in Pennsylvania and elsewhere who have ended their marriages then remarried are prone to similar outcomes in their subsequent relationships. Hollywood star Tom Arnold's current situation may be evidence that such data are correct, as he is navigating litigation regarding a divorce from his fourth wife. The central focus of these proceedings are a bit different from anything Arnold has experienced in the past because he and his current wife have two children, and they apparently disagree about how custody should be arranged.
