Common excuses for domestic violence

If you're a victim of domestic violence, your partner may try to make excuses for their behavior. This is often done in an effort to manipulate you, perhaps to influence you to refrain from getting a protective order when you need one or to keep you in the relationship.

Watch out for an ex who plays 'Christmas games' with custody

Christmas is a tough time for many divorced parents, as they may both feel like they just don't get enough time with the kids. With all the focus on family time and being together, it's not great to spend parts of the holidays alone while your ex has the children at their house.

Understand the discovery process before you begin

Deciding to divorce is definitely no small matter. It's a decision you no doubt took quite seriously; in fact, it may be one of the most significant decisions of your lifetime. You may be one of many Pennsylvania spouses who learned early on that yours was not to be a swift and amicable divorce. When you realized that your spouse was determined to make things as difficult as possible, you immediately began to focus on how you can protect your rights and interests.

If you can't pay child support, are you a 'deadbeat dad?'

The term "deadbeat dad" gets thrown around a lot when people do not pay child support, but it is somewhat stereotypical. It is possible, of course, for both mothers and fathers to fail in their obligations to pay child support. The term is generally applied to men because they have historically been ordered to pay support more often than women, but that is not always the case in the modern world, where women work more often than they did in previous generations.
