According to a recent report, more fathers are fighting to change the tide of child custody arrangements that were commonplace in the past.

Whenever there is a marital separation, the emotional implications are also coupled with financial challenges and changes. When a couple marries and has considerable wealth from the onset, there may be a prenuptial agreement in place to ensure fairness in the event of a divorce. However, if the bulk of the wealth was accumulated during the marriage, Pennsylvania couples may find it more difficult to handle financial matters during a divorce.
