When someone determines that divorce is necessary, they may face a variety of challenges. After all, from emotional issues to legal matters such as property division and child custody, separation can be incredibly difficult for people in Scranton and throughout Pennsylvania. That said, there are ways that people can simplify the divorce process, such as closely reviewing their situation and figuring out the best path forward. When it comes to filing for divorce, people should do everything they can to make separation easier.
While legal issues can be complicated for any family who is dealing with divorce or separation, child custody can be a particularly frustrating (and emotional) experience. At Kalinoski Law Offices P.C., we remain committed to helping parents who are going through this find a solution. In Scranton, Pennsylvania, and across the country, people who are dealing with the stress and emotional pain that often comes with child custody issues should do everything they can to secure an outcome that is in the best interests of the child.
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.
As divorcing couples in Pennsylvania may know, putting an end to a marriage is never easy and the process is even more complicated when there are children involved. Ending a legal relationship with one's spouse while maintaining one with the children is not easy and fragile emotional states often lead to couples being unable to come to a consensus regarding a parenting arrangement. In these situations, the court has to step in and make a custody determination based on a number of factors.
Deciding to end a marriage is not an easy decision and there are many issues that need to be resolved before a divorcing couple can put an end to their legal relationship. One of the issues that may be the root of a divorce dispute is asset division. Couples tend to accumulate a lot of property during the course of their marriage, including art, as discussed in the previous post on the Scranton Divorce Law Blog, and determining which property was procured at which point is essential to the property division process.
For art enthusiasts in Pennsylvania, art pieces are valuable assets that must be collected. For a spouse whose livelihood depends on the extraordinary and colorful creations, the masterpieces are like properties that should be preserved and appreciated. But what will happen to those art assets in the event of a high-asset divorce? Will they remain the sole property of the artist? Or are they treated similarly to any other assets that can be divided between the spouses?
