Recently, the Pennsylvania Superior Court has issued a ruling that could have a direct impact on your divorce proceedings. Now, your child can seek money for college by intervening in your marital settlement agreement.
It's unfortunate that you've reached this point, but things are just too far gone between you and your spouse and a divorce is on the horizon. As a Pennsylvania resident, there are some things you should know before beginning the divorce proceedings.
When imagining divorce, many people assume that the spouses split everything equally, 50/50. However, in Pennsylvania, this is not the case. Pennsylvania recognizes equitable distribution, which gives the courts the power to distribute the assets and property of a marriage as they see fit.
