Pennsylvania Bar Association distributes video to help children

Pennsylvania parents involved in child custody disputes may be sensitive to the needs of their children, but individuals in the court system do not always have training in how to interview children about potentially difficult subjects. Now, the section of the state bar association that focuses on family law has created a video to educate professionals and others about the best approaches to questioning children in custody cases.

Basketball player doubts results of pre-birth paternity test

If a Pennsylvania married couple conceives a child, the legal presumption will be that the husband is the father of the child. Men who conceive a child out of wedlock may be required to make a showing to a family law court that they did in fact father that child, and men may also request paternity tests if they are trying to establish their rights to child custody or visitation. A pre-birth paternity test determined that Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George fathered a child with a woman whom he met in Florida, but the basketball player is questioning the accuracy of the test.

Fathers rights loophole tightened in new bill

A bill that has passed the Pennsylvania House of Representatives would make it harder for those who became fathers through rape to have custody or visitation rights to their children. The bill would also enable the mother of a child conceived through rape to ask for financial assistance from the father without granting any further rights to that child. Under current law, a parent is unable to get child support if other parental rights have been terminated.
