Dividing Marital Property during Divorce

A major concern for many men going through a divorce involves the most important piece of marital property, the house. Many men fear that the division of marital property will result in a loss of their home. This is especially true where children are involved; however, does not have to be the case.

Your divorce attorney can work with you to attempt to find the most equitable division of property. In some cases, this means the house may be sold and both parties will share the proceeds equally. Before you decide how to divide the finances or move out of the marital home, talk with an experienced family law attorney.

Establishing Custody during Divorce Proceedings

Whenever children are involved in a divorce proceeding, there is potential for negotiations to turn sour. A major concern for men seeking divorce involves the custody of any children involved. In many divorce proceedings involving hostile parties, custody of children can become the crux of the proceedings.

Fortunately, pursuant to 23 Pa. C.S. Act 112 statute, Pennsylvania prohibits custody arrangements from being influenced by the genders of the parties involved. Rather than showing leniency toward women, Pennsylvania law requires gender neutrality as it pertains to custodial determinations. Instead, the court will focus on the roles each parent played before the divorce and during the separation.

Due to Pennsylvania’s restrictions on using gender as a factor when determining custody, men have an equal opportunity of achieving full or joint custody of their children so long as the arrangement would be in the best interest of the child.
