New year, new relationship status

For some Pennsylvania residents, the new year might mean a new relationship status from married to divorced as divorce filings increase at the beginning of the new year. While the overall divorce rate dropped by 8% from 2007 to 2017, the trend of increased divorce filings in January has continued. The increase is marked enough that January is unofficially known as "divorce month."

Planning for the financial aspects of divorce

When people in Pennsylvania decide to divorce, they may struggle with the complicated emotional, legal and financial aspects of the end of a marriage. While divorce rates have declined from around half of all marriages to around 39%, separating can be financially devastating, especially for couples who have amassed significant assets. It is important for both parties to understand the family finances comprehensively in order to make sure that they are receiving a fair settlement in the property division process. There are specialized financial advisers who can work along with a divorce attorney to examine financial records and make recommendations.

It can be tempting for a parent to use their child as leverage after a divorce. Bitterness, hostility and anger can make a person feel like the only way they can get back at the ex is to refuse visitation. If a court has granted a non-custodial parent visitation rights, interfering with these can lead to jail time, fines and even loss of custody. Here are some other illegitimate reasons Pennsylvania parents should avoid using to deny visitation.
