Pet custody during a divorce

If you and your spouse have pets, you are like most families in America. Dogs and cats are the most common type of pets that people have and, especially when it comes to dogs humans tend to develop very strong ties to these animals. When you are faced with a divorce that means you could also be faced with the prospect of losing your beloved pet. Just how is pet custody handled in a divorce?

Paying alimony with 401K account funds

The financial impact of a divorce is one that may be felt in many way by people in Pennsylvania. Every day life gets more expensive as all of a sudden the same income has to support two homes instead of just one. On top of that, one spouse might be required to pay alimony to the other. 

Reasons to consult an attorney in an uncontested divorce

Not all divorces are full of contention and spite. You and your soon-to-be-ex may have mutually agreed not to stay together, or you might decide to cooperate long enough to get the divorce over with and move on with your lives. If this is the case, then an uncontested divorce option like mediation or collaborative law might be ideal for you. Even so, our team at Palange & Endres, P.C., knows that amicable divorces in Pennsylvania are not always without complications, which is why it may be beneficial to have an attorney.

Should You Keep The House After Divorce?

Aside from custody negotiations, one of the thorniest issues in a divorce can be what happens to the house. The house a couple has shared likely has emotional meaning for both spouses, and it can be difficult to figure out what to do with it, especially if children are involved. Sometimes, to maintain the "nest" for minor children, the mother will want to stay in the house and maintain the house as a primary residence for the children, while the father finds a new place where the children can visit. This arrangement may seem like a simple solution, and may seem the most favorable solution for a mother who has stayed home to care for the children while the father worked outside the home. There can also be financial benefits to keeping the home. But there are also reasons why the house can become an albatross, too.

How collaborative divorce works

When many people think of divorce, they picture contentious arguments in a courtroom between former spouses turned bitter rivals. While divorce is a stressful and emotional life event, it doesn’t have to be one that comes to blows.

A new year often leads to new lives

It is a standard part of life in our society that when New Year's Day finally arrives, people in Pennsylvania look at how they can make positive changes in their life for the coming year and beyond. Resolution lists are created and some are achieved while others are not. In addition to weight loss or smoking cessation, some people look at how they may address other difficult parts of their lives by leaving unhappy marriages.
