Factors that can influence a custody decision

Ending marriage can bring various challenges into your life, but legal matters which involve your children may be the most difficult of all. Child custody, in particular, can be incredibly emotional and may leave a parent distraught. If you are worried about losing a custody battle or whether you will be able to see your child in the future, it is pivotal to do what you can to prepare yourself. There are many different factors that courts will review when making a custody decision and it is important to be aware of how they determine what is in a child's best interests.

Disapproval of your decision to divorce

Many different hurdles may surface for those going through a divorce, such as legal matters involving kids or finances. While these can be hard for sure, it is important to keep in mind that people splitting up with their spouse may encounter other challenges. For example, their friends or family members may disapprove of their decision to divorce. Or, if they are relatively famous, some of their fans and followers may disagree with their decision. This can place a great deal of pressure on someone who may already feel stressed out and overwhelmed about the end of their marriage.

Emotional challenges due to spousal support

When a married couple splits up, various difficulties may become a part of daily life, such as issues involving child custody or financial matters that revolve around child support. However, it is important to bear in mind that other divorce topics which do not always receive as much attention can also be very difficult for divorced people to work through. For example, spousal support payments can create challenges for those required to pay and those who receive alimony also. Aside from financial troubles, spousal support can also bring up emotional issues for people.

Can unpaid child support result in tax refund interception?

A recent post on our blog focused on back child support and passport applications. Now, we will focus on tax refunds and some of the financial consequences that parents may face when they fail to pay their child support. In Pennsylvania, parents may fall behind on these obligations for diverse reasons, including the loss of a job, health problems and so on. However, failing to stay caught up on child support payments can make life even more challenging.

Ending your marriage during back-to-school season

It can be difficult to bring your marriage to an end during any time of the year. With that said, certain months can be especially challenging. With back-to-school season around the corner, many parents will find themselves running around to buy school supplies and clothes for their child, while dealing with the stress related to school season starting up once again. If you are in the middle of a divorce during this time of year, it can be especially tricky, which highlights how crucial it is to be prepared.

The career impact of ending your marriage

Deciding to bring your marriage to an end can have a number of consequences and may lead to various challenges in life. However, divorce should not be looked at from a standpoint that is completely negative, since many people have been able to enjoy a number of benefits as well (finding a fresh start, a healthier lifestyle, etc.). That said, there are some different divorce-related topics that people should be aware of. For example, you may want to think about how the decision to split up with your spouse could affect your career.

Does unpaid child support interfere with travel?

For non-custodial parents who have fallen behind on child support payments, a number of questions may be on their mind. For example, people going through this may worry about being taken into custody or wonder how their inability to pay child support will affect their lives in other ways. For example, they may be unable to apply for a U.S. passport, which could spell disaster for those who have important travel plans. Pennsylvania parents who are struggling with child support payments should go over their options and do their best to address the situation.
