How hiring a bulldog lawyer can affect your current relationships

Divorces are the most popular cases in which either side may hire a “bulldog” attorney in Pennsylvania. These lawyers are known for being overly aggressive in the courtroom in their attempts to get as much out of the settlement as possible for their clients. Since divorces arguably have some of the most emotionally driven cases, you often see many of them practice family law.

Collaborative law is now part of Pennsylvania divorce law

It is easy to feel like life is ending when it is time to seek a divorce. In some ways, life is ending; two people are looking to start plotting their own, separate paths. But the process does not have to make a mess of a caring relationship. Even spouses who no longer get along have opportunities to avoid a messy divorce process.

Is a mediated divorce right for you?

Many couples who choose to end their marriage want to do so as amicably as possible -- particularly if they are going to continue to be in each other's lives as co-parents or perhaps as business partners. They want to settle property division, support and child custody issues fairly. Even if they are still feeling some hurt and animosity from the breakdown of the marriage, they just want to get through the divorce process as expediently as possible and move on.

Who can apply for child custody in Pennsylvania and how?

Even if divorcing parents are still on good terms, the right choices for child custody are hard to make. When parents finally agree on a custody arrangement, a court or mediator may have them start over to consider the children's wishes. One thing is certain: People who understand the child custody process are more likely to have their voices heard during it.

Why spouses wait until the holidays are over to divorce

While the Christmas season is often labeled as "The most wonderful time of the year," it can be anything but for married couples that are struggling with their relationship. Thousands of workers get several days off and get the chance to spend it with their loved ones, but what if someone doesn't want to be with their loved one?

Alcohol Monitoring System Can Help Parents Gain Greater Custody Rights

Many child custody battles are contentious because one parent has issues with alcohol, and the other parent doesn't trust them with the kids. Even if a parent has struggled with alcohol in the past and is now in recovery, trust is not rebuilt overnight -- particularly when the safety and well-being of kids are at stake.

Post-divorce modifications in Pennsylvania

For many, receiving the news that their divorce has been finalized comes as a huge relief. However, if the terms of the divorce were not what you wanted, you may feel frustration and anger instead. The good news is that it can be possible to change the terms of the divorce or appeal a judge's decision, even after the divorce has been finalized.

Pennsylvania Bar Association promotes grandparent custody rights

Typically, newer laws that get widespread media attention tend to revolve around driving or employment. Since plenty of people in the state drive and have jobs, the government pays for advertisements to make sure everyone is aware of newer bills meant to improve the safety of the state.

Pennsylvania joins other states using collaborative law

Anyone who has been through a divorce can testify that it's one of life's most difficult challenges. Spouses can end up in bitter disputes even when their feelings remain cordial if not romantic. Parents can get so wrapped up in trying to start a new life that it's easy to forget the most vulnerable victims of the end of a marriage.
