Equal does not always mean equal for divorce asset divisions

Scranton residents who go through divorce often worry about how their financial health will survive their marital splits. When couples separate and only one partner worked outside of the home, the working spouse may find him or herself paying support while the nonworking spouse struggles to find gainful employment. The partners to a divorce may struggle to find a healthy balance of dividing assets between them so that each has a fresh financial start after their marriage has ended.

What penalties can a parent face for not paying child support?

Pennsylvania family court judges award child support in order to provide for the best interests of the children brought before their benches. Child support is not punitive against a parent; rather, it is ordered so that children affected by parental separation or other legal problems are adequately provided for from their non-custodial parents. Child support is intended to address a child's financial needs and when it is ignored by a paying parent, consequences can result.
