Is your attorney up to scratch or are you itching for change?

Going through divorce can cause you to feel a great deal of stress. You may want to do your best to lessen that stress as much as possible, but certain circumstances may prove unavoidable. As you work through your case, you will likely want to gain professional assistance in order to pass some of the workload and decision-making onto a knowledgeable individual who should make your legal situation, at the very least, somewhat easier.

Though you may have hired an attorney in hopes of gaining an advocate who would look out for your best interests, you may find yourself feeling displeased with his or her services. As a result, you may also begin to wonder whether you have the option of finding new legal counsel.

Different types of custody and the right choices for your family

Issues pertaining to parenting time and visitation are some of the most complex and emotionally charged in any divorce, no matter how amicable the two parties may be. Pennsylvania parents may choose to work on a visitation and custody plan outside of court, which will allow them to exercise better control over the final details of their family's unique situation.

If you are separating or divorcing, you know how important it is to minimize the negative impact that this decision can have on the youngest members of the family. One of the ways that you can do this is by seeking an understanding of your custody options and making the best choice based on the best interests of your kids.

Checking into parental rights before the summer vacation hotel

The time has come. You're about to embark on your first summer vacation with your children since you and your former spouse decided to call it quits. You're a little nervous, but determined to enjoy your time away with your kids, creating fresh memories in your new lifestyle that you'll cherish forever. If you're facing a few problems where your child custody arrangement is concerned, you're definitely not alone. Many other Pennsylvania parents have overcome substantial challenges when former spouses tried to create obstacles to their vacation plans.

Clear communication is often a key to success in such situations. However, seeing as many marriages decline in the first place due to serious breakdowns in this area, it's not always possible to amicably discuss such matters without eruptions of anger or disagreement occurring. Staying one step ahead often amounts to knowing exactly what your rights as a parent are, and where to turn for help when troubling issues arise. These two factors may prevent post-divorce summer break problems.

Before I do: who really needs a prenup?

When you think of a prenuptial agreement, you may think first of the celebrity divorces that often make headlines, often involving two people fighting over fancy homes and other valuable property. While celebrities and the wealthy often sign prenuptial agreements to protect their property interests in case of a divorce, it is not a step only necessary for those who have more than a certain amount of money.

Even average income earners can benefit from the protections provided by a prenuptial agreement. Not only will this allow you to address property division issues in case of a divorce, it will also allow you to discuss the distribution of marital debt and other assets or liabilities.

When financial deceit threatens your future

Nearly all spouses keep some kind of financial secrets from their partners. This deception may be something small like a splurge at the mall or something embarrassing like credit card debt. In some cases, however, a spouse may hide income, assets or spending habits that may affect the welfare of the family or the level of trust the couple shares.

If your spouse is financially unfaithful, it could be because he or she wants to maintain control over you by controlling the money. This may be especially significant if you and your spouse are heading toward divorce.

Divorce déjà vu: The end of your second marriage

After your first marriage ended, you may have resolved to make the next one work. You learned from your mistakes, and you were confident you would not repeat them. Like many who remarry, you may have hoped you found the perfect partner this time. The first divorce probably made you painfully aware of every flaw in your spouse, and you thought your new partner might be different.

Despite your best efforts, you are facing a second divorce. It's probably no comfort to learn that the odds were against you from the beginning. In fact, some statistics show that 60 percent of second marriages end in divorce.

The unique issues involved in a military divorce

The end of a marriage is difficult for any couple, but there are unique factors that can make a military divorce especially complicated. In order to achieve an outcome that is reasonable and beneficial, Pennsylvania military personnel or spouses may find it beneficial to seek assistance from a legal ally with experience in this particular area of family law.

Divorce, holidays and your children

So, it's that time of year again. The holiday season is upon you and you are anticipating festive times with family, co-workers and friends. Only one thing about this particular year is different than all others past: You're now divorced, and your kids are having a tough time.

If your children have been having a difficult time adapting to your new lifestyle, the holiday season may seem a bit overwhelming to them. You're probably a lot like many other divorced parents in Pennsylvania who want to keep favorite past traditions alive, while helping your children move forward to a new and happy future.

When you no longer share a bed but you still share children

The day you were married, it wasn't likely you spent the hours envisioning yourself standing in a divorce court in Pennsylvania. Fast forward time to the current issues you now face.

Life happens. More often than not, things don't go as planned. For whatever reasons, you have chosen to end your marriage. Although you will no longer share a home and your relationship with your former spouse will change, if you are parents, you will still share your children.
