Do you need an attorney to help with your family law issues?

Most people here in Pennsylvania and elsewhere go about their lives never needing the assistance of an attorney. Perhaps this is why they hesitate to enlist the advice and assistance of one when issues arise within their families. Of course, many people consider hiring an attorney if their marriages end, but family law encompasses much more than just divorce.

Parenting plans: A particularly challenging part of family law

Sure, divorce involves a variety of issues that Pennsylvania couples need to resolve such as property division, spousal support and child support. Even so, you may agree with many other divorcing couples that dealing with child custody and parenting plans may constitute a particularly challenging aspect of family law. Both parents want to be as involved in their children's lives as possible despite the end of the marriage. Making that happen could take some work and planning.

Family law issues don't end with a final divorce settlement

Whether a couple came to a final settlement through mediation, collaborative divorce or in court, the parties probably spent a great deal of time painstakingly advocating for their individual financial futures. Once all the paperwork is signed and the court has closed the case, many Pennsylvania residents may believe that they have nothing more to do. The truth is that the family law issues for most couples do not end at that point. Often, more work needs to be done.

Not all family law attorneys are created equal

In many cases, when Pennsylvania residents search for an attorney, it is due to some sort of crisis. They are often experiencing one of the lowest times in their lives, and need help to get through it. This is often the case in family law matters, and choosing the right representation makes a difference.

Will 2018 be a busy year in family law?

According to reports, big changes are coming in the Internal Revenue Code in 2018. One of those changes could mean a busy year for those who work in family law here in Pennsylvania and throughout the country. That's because it appears that the final version of the new tax bill contains a provision that beginning Jan. 1, 2019, those who pay spousal support (alimony) will no longer get a tax break for making those payments.

You may need a family law attorney for more than just divorce

These days, it is difficult to have a friend or family member who has not been through a divorce. This may be the only area of family law with which you are familiar. However, family law encompasses far more than just divorce and the issues of property division and support that go along with it.

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.
