What happens to Custody of my kids during my Divorce?

Filing for Divorce is a difficult decision for most couples, having to worry about your children during a divorce case makes things even more challenging. Communication and agreement between spouses are key to working out a temporary Custody Agreement pending divorce proceeding. By working out a temporary Custody Agreement, parents and the children will have an agreed upon schedule to spend time with each parent and establish each parents’ responsibilities, such as, required duties and obligations to the children for care and needs. For example, if the parents are in separate houses pending the Divorce proceeding, how many days a week will the children sleep at mom's house versus dad's house. Who will pick up children from extracurricular activities? How will they share holidays and vacations?

Resolving these issues is critical to maintaining stability for your children during a very difficult life changing time. Blitshtein & Weiss attorneys will help you negotiate a fair Custody Agreement pending your Divorce and file it with the Court and obtain a Custody Court Order. By having a Custody Order in place that is one less issue that you and your spouse need to argue about, and you can shift your focus to dividing your marital assets pending the Equitable Distribution hearing in your Divorce case.

Did you know that Pennsylvania is not a "community property" state, but rather an “equitable distribution" state. The difference between the two is that in an "equitable distribution" state if the spouses cannot agree to the division of their marital assets the Court will decide. However, in a "community property" state divorcing spouses are by law required to split all their assets which they acquired during their marriage unless they have a Prenuptial agreement or a Postnuptial agreement. As Pennsylvania is an "Equitable distribution" state, it is imperative for a divorcing spouse to retain an experienced knowledgeable attorney who can identify all marital assets and fight for their clients share to them. Our attorneys will fight for your assets and make sure that your marital assets are divided fairly. Our attorneys are result oriented, compassionate, legally knowledgably aggressive litigators that will work diligently on your behalf. We have been successfully doing just that!
