Domestic violence and child support in Pennsylvania

Divorce can get extremely complicated when children are involved. Children usually do not want to part with their parents. In many situations, they would prefer for their parents to live together. However, in the best interest of the child, the court will often order one parent to have custody of the child and the other parent will pay child support.

Child support and good cause in Pennsylvania


Pennsylvania residents might agree that divorce can become extremely complicated when children are involved. What spouses very often forget is that although they might have fallen out of love, their children often still wish that they could live together.

Relocation of custodial parents


A Philadelphia resident may relocate to a different city or even a different state or country because of a new job or a job transfer. In the event that the person has primary custody of the children, the situation may become complicated due to child custody and the visitation rights of the non-custodial parent. In fact, the non-custodial parent may be very upset about not being able to visit the children as frequently or easily as before.

How can you help a victim of domestic violence?


There are many people in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who may be aware of a family member or friend who is experiencing a situation involving domestic violence.

Lawyers defending grandparents' rights in Philadelphia

In some cases, the grandparent may even be entitled to child custody in cases where the biological parents are unable to take care of the child or if it has been deemed to be in the best interest of the child by a Philadelphia family court judge.

Helping a toddler cope with the pressures of the parents' divorce


When a couple with a toddler decides to part ways, the couple must understand that the separation of the parents can have a damaging effect on the child. If a toddler sees that one parent is away almost all of the time, except for during the visitation hours, that child may feel abandoned, which may lead to erratic behavior. Therefore, it is important for such parents in Pennsylvania, and elsewhere in the United States, to work together to make the divorce process as easy as possible for the toddler.

Become a super parent in post-divorce child custody issues


Every child has a favorite superhero, be it Superman, Spider-Man or Captain America. Superheroes save mankind from monsters, villains and evil gangs. They have the ability to defy the odds in spite of adversity. Anyone can be a superhero in daily life, and that includes divorcing parents in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. To be a superhero to children, it does not take any kind of special power or supernatural ability; it takes love, commitment and communication, especially among divorcing parents.
