Your divorce is finally coming to an end. As you prepare for a new life in Pennsylvania without your spouse in tow, it is important to get your finances in order before everything is officially finalized. Throughout the years, you have mixed finances with your soon-to-be ex-spouse and opened a few joint accounts. You may have several major assets in both of your names. No matter how much you think you deserve to take complete ownership of certain accounts, properties and other marital assets, the law may say otherwise.
As you know, winters in Pennsylvania can be brutal. Not only do drivers have to contend with sleet and snow, but we have periodic ice storms that can turn a stretch of highway into ice skating rinks.

If you suspect your marriage may be nearing its end, you may also be dealing with a loss of trust in your relationship.

Accidents happen all the time throughout the state of Pennsylvania. In fact, statistics from 2016 show that nearly 15 accidents occurred every hour in the state. Out of those crashes, approximately nine injuries would take place every hour as well.

It is important to know that Pennsylvania child custody laws are gender-neutral and based on the best interests of your child.
As a business owner with a considerable amount of assets, there are specific things you need to consider when going through a divorce.
