Harassment in a parenting relationship is never acceptable

While many co-parents make a pointed effort to get along for the sake of the children, there are some who just can't put themselves aside; they work hard to make the situation as complicated as possible. If you're being subjected to harassment, you will need to take steps to make it stop.

Specific requirements are found in child support orders

Both parents need to help financially support their children. While this is easy when they live in the same house, there are often challenges when they divorce. Because there has to be some type of plan for who is going to pay for what, a child support order is a part of the split. This helps to ensure that both parents know what to expect and sets the obligations for both parents.

Retirement account division in divorce requires special steps

One of the assets that you have to divide during the property division process of a divorce is the retirement accounts you and your ex have. If you have to move any of these around, you'll need to have a qualified domestic relations order, or QDRO. This is a court-issued document that provides instructions to the plan administrator so you aren't left having to pay penalties when you move them around.

Child custody modification: Things you should know

As in all matters of divorce in Pennsylvania or elsewhere, a key to accomplishing your goals is to be as well-informed as possible before heading to court. The more you know about your parental rights, for instance, and how to protect them, the less likely it is that you will encounter a legal obstacle you can't resolve. Child custody issues can be difficult to handle on your own; however, if you know where to seek additional support as needed, you can improve your ability to protect your interests.

Tips for telling your children that you're going through divorce

Child custody disagreements are often hard to navigate through, especially in the beginning when you're just embarking on the new way of life. One of the most important things you and your ex can do is to come up with the terms of the parenting plan as quickly as possible when you split up. This can help you ensure that you're working as a team to help the children adjust to the new way of life.
