Can you make the decisions when it comes to child custody?

Divorce can take its toll on everyone involved. While you certainly want to get through the process as unscathed as possible, you likely have more concern over how the process will impact your kids. This concern is understandable, as you have major decisions to make regarding child custody.

Divorce mediation may help during divorce involving children

Individuals in Pennsylvania typically walk down the aisle with the goal of keeping their marriages intact long term. Unfortunately, irreconcilable differences make this impossible to achieve sometimes, and although this can certainly take an emotional toll on the spouses, it can be even more problematic for young children. Fortunately, when divorce cannot be avoided, divorce mediation can help to make the marital breakup process as amicable as possible for the entire family. Here are a couple of other steps that parents can take to make divorce easier on the children.

Mediation may help to minimize property division conflict

Sometimes efforts to make a marriage work are not successful. In these situations, divorce is often unavoidable. However, the process of mediation may make tackling divorce issues, such as property division, much easier than they would be with traditional divorce litigation in Pennsylvania.

However, if the two parties have high-value assets to split -- or a large quantity of property to divide -- this can also be an overwhelming part of the divorce process. Here is a rundown on how courts handle property division in the Keystone State.

Credit cards remain a major cause of debt issues in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. In some cases, filing for personal bankruptcy is the only way to break free from this debt. Here are a few mistakes that credit card users often make that cause them to get into the hole financially and thus require bankruptcy protection.
