Divorce Archives

Options for determining child support

Pennsylvania parents who are getting a divorce may be concerned that child support will be imposed upon them by a judge, but there are a number of ways that parents can come to an agreement. This is often done with the assistance of their separately-retained attorneys. The issues that need to be agreed upon are how long the child support will last, how much it will be and how often it will be paid.

How to help kids handle a divorce

Both children and adults may have a hard time adjusting to life during and after a divorce. However, there are ways in which Pennsylvania residents and others may be able to help themselves and their children cope. Parents are encouraged to be honest about what is happening and make themselves available to answer questions about the divorce process. Parents should tell their children that the divorce wasn't their fault and that they will always love them.

Divorce among older couples

Pennsylvania residents may have seen headlines talking about the increased risk of divorce for those over the age of 50. However, it is important to note that the risk of a divorce is not the same for every person in that demographic. For instance, older couples who have a relatively high income or those who own property together are less likely to get a divorce.

How to approach a separation

For some Pennsylvania couples who are struggling with their marriages, a formal separation can help them determine if they should try to reconcile or get a divorce. Separation involves two married people living in different places, and it's important that individuals treat their finances as separate as well. This will help them protect themselves as well as help them begin to get used to living on one income if they end up divorcing.

Electronic accounts and divorce

Pennsylvania residents who are getting a divorce may want to be careful about how they handle their social media accounts and other electronic communications. These could all potentially become fodder for their spouse and their spouse's attorney to use against them. However, people can take steps to protect themselves.

Divorce filings surge in January

Many Pennsylvania residents make New Year's resolutions, but not all of them resolve to lose 10 pounds in the coming year. Some people may resolve to divorce their spouses in the new year. January is usually the busiest time of year for divorce lawyers, with filings up as much as 30 percent over other months.
