Custody arrangements can vary significantly, depending on the parents’ situation and the needs of the children. The trend has been a toward an equalization of time between parents in terms of visitation, or what is known as joint physical custody. Other variations on custody include joint legal custody, where the parents share all decisions concerning the welfare of the child. Petitions for partial physical custody or visitation are often needed when the other party is controlling when and how long you see your child for. In all these custody arrangements, it is critical that an attorney help develop petitions and filings to ensure that your interests and those of your child are fully considered.
Pennsylvania child support guidelines change every four years. Generally, they are based on the parties’ incomes, as defined by income thresholds. In addition, the amount of time the child spends with each parent is considered if over 40% of the nights, as well as other aspects of the custody order, such as which parent pays for health insurance and other essentials.
