How divorce impacts a person's tax status

When Pennsylvania couples get divorced, it may have an impact on their tax status. One of those changes revolves around their filing status. The IRS considers the divorce to occur in the tax year in which the marriage officially ends. For instance, if the divorce was official before the end of 2017, an individual could not use the married filing jointly or married filing single statuses.

Some jobs more prone than others for divorce

Pennsylvania couples might be interested in the findings of a study on occupation and divorce in the United States. Data from the 2015 American Community Survey was examined and gathered for presentation by FlowingData comparing divorce rates across different jobs. According to the study, people working as bartenders are more likely to get divorced than those working in any other field. Flight attendants were also found to have a high risk of divorce.

The impact contradictory rules have on children

Pennsylvania children of divorced parents who split their time between two households may face contradictions when it comes to house rules. Parental rules on the things ranging from food choices to bedtime to entertainment options may change depending on which house the child is staying in. Too many contradictions in co-parenting could have a detrimental mental and emotional effect on the children involved.

Shared parenting helps to foster parent-child bonds

Parents in Pennsylvania who are heading towards divorce have another alternative when it comes to child custody: shared parenting. This custody system is standard in many countries around the world and has grown in popularity in the United States as well, especially amid the growth of dual-career families.
