Family law: Divorce may mean tough decisions about the home

Pennsylvania couples have many concerns when they decide to divorce. There is great uncertainty ahead, and adjusting to post-divorce life may be a new experience. One area of comfort is often the family home, and there may be disagreements in court over how to divide the equity in that home. In some family law proceedings, one or the other spouse will want to remain in the home, especially if there are children in the marriage.

Common issues bring couples to family law court

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, within the first five years of marriage, 20 percent of couples have already separated. As the years pass, more couples part ways until more than half are no longer together. While some researchers strive to find deep-rooted causes of divorce, psychologists may agree that every couple typically goes through the same kinds of difficulties. Some Pennsylvania couples find their marriages strengthened by the trials, and others find themselves seeking divorces in family law court.

Family law study connects divorce to teenage drama

Any Pennsylvania parent who has weathered the years when their kids were teens can attest to the tension in the household. While teen boys bring with them their own challenges, most parents agree that the drama and emotion of a teenage girl can set an entire family on edge. Researchers recently looked into the effect of teenagers on family law issues and discovered some surprising correlations.

Family law attorney can assist with remarriage prenup

Given the statistics, it may seem inconceivable that so many divorced people in Pennsylvania and across the country marry a second or even third time. With each consecutive marriage, the odds of ending in divorce go higher, and some who remarry find themselves divorcing for the same reasons that ended their previous relationships. Nevertheless, family law advisors suggest some steps couples can take to improve their chances of staying together as well as protecting themselves if the marriage goes badly.

Three things to ask in an initial consultation

The fear of the unknown is arguably the worst type of fear. This is especially difficult if you are facing a divorce or a child custody dispute for the first time. Perhaps you have heard horror stories about how unfair the court system may be or how expensive it is to have your day in court.
