Divorcing parents have the added pressure of not only dismantling their marriage, but also keeping their children's best interests in mind throughout the entire process. Most parents in Pennsylvania play active roles in the lives of their children, and they typically expect this to be reflected in their child custody agreement. However, fathers in particular are often surprised that this is not the case. Fathers are increasingly advocating for their right to continue parenting after a divorce.
Divorce proceedings tend to get a bad rap when depicted in popular TV shows and films. Knockdown, drag-out fights might make for good entertainment, but they hardly make for successful divorces. Property division is usually much more effective and yields more agreeable results when both parties of a Pennsylvania couple can work together to decide how to divide assets. This is especially true for larger assets, such as a marital home.
