Child Custody Can be a Sticky Issue – Even for Celebrities

By Sheryl Rentz on April 13, 2009

Pop star Madonna and her ex-husband Guy Ritchie have made their child custody deal legal and final in the United States, according to a recent news report. The celebrity couple apparently filed papers with a Manhattan court regarding the shared custody of their two children, 8-year-old Rocco and 3-year-old David. The joint custody agreement states that both boys must remain kosher and attend synagogue twice a week.

When there are children involved in a divorce proceeding, it always gets more complicated. The laws surrounding child custody in Pennsylvania after a divorce are complex and rather difficult to understand. If you are going through such a situation, it would be in your best interest to retain the services of an experienced Pennsylvania divorce lawyer. It could save you long-term problems and serious headaches. You do not want to take a chance when it comes to your children.

Please remember that if you are involved in divorce proceedings that concern children, you should have your lawyer draw up a comprehensive settlement plan before filing divorce papers, which can also include a custody schedule. In Pennsylvania, you can either file for legal custody or physical custody. Legal custody in Pennsylvania means that you as a parent have the right to make all decisions regarding your child, such as their education, healthcare and residence. Physical custody determines where the child or children live.
