Plan for the unexpected

When developing an estate plan, it's important to consider all possible situations. Although joint tenancy with survivorship is suitable for many married couples, it doesn't address every case and may leave surviving spouses to deal with Westmoreland County probate or risk the property being transferred to the wrong person.

Parental alienation can cut parent-child bonds

Divorce can often be difficult for children and parents in Pennsylvania. Dealing with questions of child custody, support and parenting plans can be some of the more challenging and emotional issues that come with the end of a marriage. While it is best if divorcing parents can put their personal issues aside, this does not always happen. Combative divorces can lead to one parent pressuring children to take sides in a harmful way.

How to deal with a divorce in December

When parents in Pennsylvania divorce during the holiday season, it can color the family's perception of this time of year indefinitely. For a child, it may be stressful spending time with multiple families because of an arrangement that their parents made. However, embracing family could help some to regain their holiday cheer.

Choosing the right divorce team

There are many issues that divorcing couples in Pennsylvania may have to address. The financial impact of a separation can be just as devastating as the emotional and psychological effects. Therefore, it is important for divorcing spouses to have the counsel of professionals who are able to provide pertinent advice throughout the process. The right divorce team can mean the difference between a bitter and civilized separation.

Retired divorcing couples have unique concerns

For Pennsylvania couples at or approaching retirement age, the rate of divorce has escalated, especially as people lead longer, healthier and more active lives. The divorce rate for couples in the United States has seen an overall decline, but for couples over 50 years of age, the rate has continued to grow consistently since 1987. In total, the rate has grown in that time by over 50 percent, and one out of four couples makes the decision to divorce after age 50. This decision can be escalated as retirement approaches and couples have an "empty nest" after their adult children leave the home.
