Criteria for seeking child support modification in Pennsylvania

When a couple in Pennsylvania shares a child, there is often an agreement or court order that details a support agreement so the child is adequately cared for and all the needs are provided. This can be linked to a child support formula. In some instances, the circumstances regarding the agreement change and either the custodial parent or the supporting parent will seek to have a child support modification. There are certain factors that must be considered when a parent is seeking modifications.

Understanding child support options and how family law helps

There are a number of important concerns parents paying and receiving child support may have. Parents who are receiving child support may wonder how they enforce child support obligations and parents who are paying child support may wonder if they have options if they are experiencing difficulty paying required child support and what those options might be.

Helping parents better understand child custody laws

When it comes to child custody, Philadelphia parents typically have strong feelings. After all, a child custody arrangement determines how much time a child will get to spend with each parent. Oftentimes, parents do not see eye to eye when it comes to child custody arrangements. Both parents may believe they are better suited to have physical custody of a child. When a parent finds themselves in one of these child custody disputes, it can help to be armed with the aid of an experienced attorney.

Who keeps the family home in a divorce?

When a Philadelphia couple reaches the end of a marriage, there are many questions that may arise. These questions can prove to be highly contentious, making it difficult for couples to discuss them amicably. Sometimes, it may prove challenging to come to any kind of understanding of these contentious issues, and divorcing spouses may feel as if they are going into certain parts of the divorce process blind. Thankfully, attorneys are available to help discuss all the nuances involved in divorce cases, so divorcing spouses do not need to worry about confronting these issues alone.

A look at physical, joint and split custody

Philadelphia parents going through a divorce likely have a lot on their minds. For parents especially, divorce can be a trying time in a person's life. After all, there is much to consider -- along with property division and alimony, parents also often have to look at child support and child custody. Child custody can be one of the most contentious parts of a divorce. Oftentimes, parents will disagree on whether physical, joint or split custody is in the best interests of the child.
