A parent who wants to relocate shall notify each person who has custody rights to the child by certified mail, return receipt requested. No relocation is to occur without the consent of all parties or unless a court approves it. Section 5337(c) requires that the notice contain the following:
If a party has pending criminal charges, the court must consider whether that party poses a risk of physical, emotional, or psychological harm to the child. There are certain crimes, often referred to as “enumerated offenses” because they are specifically enumerated in the statute, that the court will review to determine whether a party poses such a risk.
Is a parent responsible for the support of their adult children? Generally, parents are responsible for the support of a child until the child reaches the age of majority (18) or they graduate from high school, whichever event occurs later. The right to support may actually exist beyond majority where the child is physical or mentally challenged or unable to support themselves. 23 PA.C.S. Section 4321(3).
House Bill No. 1250 stands to change the way that spousal support and alimony pendente lite (APL) is determined in Pennsylvania. Instead of using the Pennsylvania Support Guidelines to determine the amount of support subject to certain deviations, House Bill 1250 will focus on the "basic needs" of the petitioning spouse.
