New studies explains effects of divorce on kids

The entire divorce process can be complicated and life-altering for everyone involved. Even if it is a completely amicable divorce, Pennsylvania parents may want to know the latest news and studies pertaining to how divorce affects children. A recent study outlines a few effects and also gives insight as to how to help kids through the process.

Pennsylvania mother wins lawsuit after winning child custody

Whenever the state feels there is a reason to take a child from a parent or parents, they typically do so in the best interest of the child. However, there may be times when they interfere with a child custody situation due to a misunderstanding and a parent or parents lose custody of their children for no reason. For one Pennsylvania mom, suing the state agency that took her child and the hospital where the child was born has helped them deal with what was deemed a wrongful act.

Divorce process may be harder with lack of communication

Anytime one half of a couple files for divorce any lack of communication or misunderstanding can make the situation all the more stressful than if communication is fluid. When one party learns of the intent to file for divorce from someone else or through another outlet, the situation may become even more contentious. For any Pennsylvania couples or parties thinking of filing for divorce, they may want to follow the news making situation between celebrity chef Nigella Lawson and her husband Charles Saatchi.

Falling behind in child support can affect freedom

Whenever couple's divorce or even if they were never married, the responsibility that comes with having a child to financially provide for can be overwhelming or difficult for some individuals. However, once an order to pay a certain amount of child support has been handed down, not following through with that order can have serious consequences. Pennsylvania parents who pay or receive child support payments may want to follow the case of one man and his recent arrest.

Supreme Court rules on adoption case

Family law situations and child custody can be a complicated matter, and doing what is in the best interest of a child may not be as easy as it sounds. In one particular child custody and adoption case, the parties have gone all the way to the Supreme Court to reach a decision. Any Pennsylvania couples in the midst of adoption, especially those of Native American descent or those involved in an adoption of a child with Native American roots, may want to follow the ruling and what may be next for the parties involved.
