How are pets handled in divorce?

Your pets are a part of the family. When you get a divorce in Pennsylvania, it may become a struggle to figure out where the pets go. Do you get them or your spouse? Who has the right to a pet?

What is co-parenting?

Like many other states, Pennsylvania is quickly seeing its family courts lean more towards enforcing co-parenting over giving one parent sole custody of the children in a custody case.

You each retain your authority and rights over the children as if you and the other parent were still together as a couple.
