Pennsylvania spousal support during divorce


The final divorce decree helps spouses by requiring the other spouse to pay for alimony and child support. However, a spouse's expenses are not delayed or placed on hold during the divorce negotiations or court proceedings. This could weaken the economically disadvantaged spouse's ability to engage in litigation or settlement negotiations because they may be forced to agree to an expedited conclusion or settlement, as they cannot afford to continue.

Child custody after the relationship ends


In child custody cases, Pennsylvania courts have long ruled that a child's life may not be placed on hold until a parent shows the capacity to handle parenting responsibilities. Following this logic, a Pennsylvania appeals court terminated the custody rights of a father last month when there was no evidence that the child ever had relationship with father.
