Raising children alone can be expensive

Divorce can hit children hard. If the marriage was particularly difficult, the parents look forward to a better life ahead. However, the children are often gripped by a strong sense of insecurity. They may be unsure about which parent they will live with and which parent will financially support them. Hence, in the best interest of the child, Pennsylvania courts generally order one parent to take custody of the child and the other parent to pay child support.
