Mother records heartfelt message before son's adoption

An unplanned pregnancy can bring about mixed emotions for a variety of reasons.  Some parents-to-be are concerned about their lack of financial resources and personal support network.  Others are concerned about being able to care for the new child and the children they already have.  Sometimes, these circumstances cause parents to look into placing their infant for adoption. As a consequence, there are many Pennsylvania families that have been united through this choice.

More states considering the benefits of shared child custody

Several decades ago, it was typical for a family court judge to rule that the mother is the default parent and that fathers would be awarded the right to visit their child on a set schedule. That approach has been revised over the past few years as more courts are considering the merits of shared child custody. Pennsylvania has its own laws that do permit joint custody.

Digital stalking becoming problem, especially during divorce

Years ago, if a suspicious spouse wanted to keep tabs on a partner, he or she might resort to hiring a private detective to gather evidence of infidelity or other breaches of trust. While this may have been unsettling for the target of the spying, it may pale in comparison to some of the tools that are now being employed during a divorce. Pennsylvania residents who are concerned about any aspect of an impending separation or divorce may seek more information about protecting themselves.

Your choice of divorce mediator could affect your negotiations

Perhaps you and your soon-to-be former spouse made the conscious decision to stay out of court. You want to use mediation to resolve your issues and reach a fair and equitable settlement. You both agree that this provides you with the best option for ending your marriage as amicably as possible.
