New law could impact child custody decisions

One of the most difficult decisions that parents contemplating divorce may face in Pennsylvania concerns child custody and how parenting will be shared going forward following a divorce. There is no law in the state that mandates the state's involvement, so parents are free to negotiate child custody independent of the courts. When an agreement cannot be reached, the court may intervene. Sadly, a decision from the court can take several months and may not be to the liking of one or even both parents.

Pennsylvania child custody: The details matter

Figuring out who children will live with and how much time they will spend with each parent after divorce can be a real challenge for parents in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. Even when the time portion of a child custody order is figured out, there are a lot of other details that need to be considered and included in a custody plan. In the end, the details matter and can work to one's benefit.
