Grandparents and their close relationship with grandchildren

Today, Philadelphia residents are aware that the roles of grandparents have changed. They are more attached to their grandchildren and some of them even step up in child custody disputes by exercising their grandparents' rights. Child custody disputes are sometimes settled by awarding visitation rights for grandparents, who have forged an unbreakable bond with their grandchildren.

Ways to handle child support and divorce-related issues

When a couple chooses to divorce, many family issues can create arguments between the couple. Perhaps the biggest source of contention between divorcing couples - in Philadelphia and throughout the United States - is how the children will be cared for and supported. During divorce, child support is a major concern as it determines whether the child will obtain his or her needs in the future. Generally, non-custodial parents are responsible for paying the support to the custodial parent, who is in charge of the budget. The amount of support should be sufficient enough for the everyday expenses including medical, education and recreation of the child.

Tattooing by force - one form of domestic violence

According to the FBI, one of every four women in the United States will experience some sort of assault by a boyfriend or husband during her life. Although domestic violence is often a silent crime, some victims bear permanent reminders - tattoos - that demonstrate how their abusers regarded them as little more than property.

Helping Pennsylvania residents with child custody

A child custody dispute during divorce should be settled amicably for the best interests of the child. In the past, the majority of mothers gained the sole custody of the children, while the other parent was awarded visitation. Eventually, the gender equality became more balanced, enabling fathers to share the same rights that women have for the benefit of the children involved.

Kris Humphries' and Kim Kardashian's divorce is settled

In Philadelphia, local residents have either experienced or heard about divorce. Some of them may have experienced it firsthand, during childhood, or from talking to friends or relatives who went through divorce. The truth is that the process itself is not easy, depending on the circumstances. There are cases when spouses are dragged into a drawn out dispute until they finally reach an agreement.
