Divorce – 13 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Divorce

November 20, 2017
 13 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Divorce
1. Will I be able to receive alimony?
There are several tests for alimony:
–       Need (Can you support yourself with earned income plus investment income?)
–       Ability to pay (Does the payer of alimony have sufficient funds to pay?)
–       Length of marriage (A long-term marriage – ten years or more – is more likely to have longer alimony paid to the lower-earning spouse.)
–       Age and health of both parties
2. Do I have to share my pension?
Most pensions and retirement plans are considered to be marital assets in most states. Depending on the state where you file for divorce, the portion before your marriage could also be considered a marital asset.
3. Should the wife get the house?
It depends on several things:
–       If the wife has custody of the children, you may want to keep change to a minimum.
–       She should not depend on alimony to make high house payments.
–       If the payments are low, she probably should keep the house.
–       If the equity in the house is all she receives, she may need some liquid funs (cash).
4. What if I bring a house into the marriage that is in my name only, and I add my spouse’s name to the deed?
Then the whole house is considered to be marital property. You have made a “presumptive gift” to the marriage. In other words, it is assumed you gave your spouse a gift of half the value of the property.
5. Is my IRA considered marital property? It’s in my name only.
Everything acquired during the marriage, no matter whose name it’s in, is considered to be marital property. In some states, the increase in value of separate property is considered marital.
6. I have never worked. Can I get Social Security?
If your spouse has worked and is eligible for Social Security and if you have been married for ten years or more, then you are entitled to one-half or your spouse’s Social Security or your own, whichever is higher. It does not lower your spouse’s benefit.
7. How do we figure how much child support should be paid?
All states now have child support guidelines. You can get a copy by asking your attorney or by contacting the local bar association.
8. Do we have to go to court?
Only if you can’t reach an agreement. Then, a court date is set and a judge hears the case.
9. Can we use just one attorney?
It is not recommended. If you do use your spouse’s attorney, remember that this attorney represents your spouse, not you, if the going gets rough.
10. Where can we find financial help?
Financial Divorce Specialists are trained to help people through the financial maze of divorce. They sift through the financial issues including incomes, expenses, assets, tax issues, pensions, and division of property to help you reach a financially equitable settlement that is fair to both parties. Call the Financial Divorce Association (888-332-3342) or go to http://www.FDAdivorce.com for the name of a financial divorce specialist in your area.
11. Who will pay the attorneys’ fees?
Today, the most likely answer is that each pays his or her own attorney fees. There are always exceptions, with a significant disparity in financial positions. Unless the couple agrees that one will pay the other’s attorney bills, the judge will decide.
12. Who will pay our debts?
It is imperative that you be specific about what is your debt and what is not. Part of your responsibility is to create a plan for repayment of debt that is yours.
13. What child custody arrangements will we have?
It’s a good idea to explore alternatives to your situation. Some holidays are more important to one parent than to the other. Sometimes joint custody works well, sometimes it doesn’t. Some parents stay within the same neighborhood or school district for their school-age kids. Some even rotate who lives in the old family residence as the custodial parent so the kids stay put – it’s the parent who packs his or her bags.

Divorce – Teenagers and Parenting Time (Visitation)

November 20, 2017
Teenagers and Parenting Time (Visitation)
By Gregg A. Greenstein, Esq. of Frascona, Joiner, Goodman and Greenstein, PC.
Parenting time (visitation) orders and agreements in parenting plans or stipulations are sometimes made long before children are teenagers. Or, sometimes parenting time (visitation) orders and agreements are made when children are teenagers, but things change after the divorce or custody case is over – and those orders just don’t work any more in the real world.
There may be many reasons why a teenager does not want to visit with the other parent. For example:
• The teenager may think one parent is too strict (maybe the parent does not let the teenager play with a Play Station, or the parent actually makes the child do homework or chores; or the parent does not let the teenager hang out with friends in the basement, etc.).
• The teenager has after school extracurricular activities, and one of the parents doesn’t want to drive the teenager to the activity or the child is “too busy.”
• The teenager is just lazy, and doesn’t want to pack up and go to the other parent’s house.
• The relationship between the teenager and the parent has just deteriorated, and the teenager doesn’t want to see or speak with the other parent.
In any of those situations, the parent who allows the teenager to choose to not go to the other parent, could be in trouble with the law.
When the parties reach an agreement on parenting time (visitation) or on custody (decision making), and that agreement is approved by the court, it is a “court order.” In order for our legal system to work, judges need to be able to impose some penalties against a parent who does not comply with a court order. The penalty or remedial phase of a case, when a parent does not comply with a court order, is called a “contempt proceeding.”
In 2017, the Colorado Court of Appeals decided in the case titled “In re Marriage of Dean,” that “[a]lthough it might be difficult to compel a child, particularly a teenager, to comply with a court-ordered parenting plan, this does not excuse a parent from making reasonable good faith efforts to secure the child’s compliance.” The Court of Appeals took the position that a parent is not a “powerless bystander” in the decisions and actions of a child, and has “an obligation to attempt to overcome the child’s resistance” to visitation with the other parent.
In other words, a parent is expected to do more than refrain from discouraging visitation; a parent is expected to take affirmative action to encourage visitation. So how can a parent “do more than refrain from discouraging visitation,” and “take affirmative action to encourage visitation?” The answer is unknown, because the decision in the Dean case did not include any information about how that happens.
Some practical suggestions include: (1) texting or emailing the teenager and telling him or her that he or she has to go to the other parent for parenting time; (2) getting the child into therapy to try to address the teenager’s refusal to go to the other parent (but remember, if a parent has joint decision making authority, the therapy decision has to be made jointly); (3) filing a motion with the court, asking the court for some guidance about what to do; (4) talking with the other parent and confirming in writing what arrangements are trying to be made to compel the child to go with the other parent; and (5) consulting with a child development expert to get expert on advice on how to help the teenager go to the other
parent.
Conclusion
Court orders have to be followed, or the disobedient parent can face severe consequences. Teenagers don’t make the rules. The judges and magistrates make the rules in the form of court orders. To avoid going to jail, paying attorney fees, and facing other sanctions, parents must comply with court orders.

Newtown Square gets its hotel

November 17, 2017

Newtown Square gets its hotel
The opening of a Hilton hotel in Delaware County puts Equus Capital Partners one step closer to completing its vision of creating a campus that would attract corporations while meeting “unmet demand for hotels” in the area. The 138-room Hilton Garden Inn at the 218-acre mixed-use community Ellis Preserve in Newtown Square, will officially open on Wednesday, Nov. 22. When completed, Ellis Preserve, at the intersection of Route 252 and Route 3, will include 1.5 million square feet of office space, 420,000 square feet of retail anchored by Whole Foods that will open in 2018, 142 townhomes and 252 apartments. “When we bought the property in 2004, it was well known that there was significant unmet demand for hotel rooms in that immediate market,” said Steve Spaeder, president of Equus’ development arm, BPG Development Co.

Spotted lanternfly quarantine zone spreads 

November 17, 2017

Spotted lanternfly quarantine zone spreads 
The continuing infestation by the invasive spotted lanternfly insects has pushed Pennsylvania officials to declare quarantines at the county level and to add seven counties to the list of those already affected. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture had previously been issuing quarantines on an individual municipality basis. Berks, Bucks, Chester, Lehigh, Montgomery and Northampton counties are all included, and the state has now added Carbon, Delaware, Lancaster, Lebanon, Monroe, Philadelphia and Schuylkill counties. The quarantine now includes areas where the insect is not yet confirmed, but where there is a high risk of its rapid spread beyond the region, according to a release from the Department of Agriculture. “This invasive insect threatens to destroy $18 billion worth of agricultural commodities here like apples, grapes and hardwoods, inflicting a devastating impact on the livelihoods of our producers and businesses,” Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding said. Residents of the quarantined counties are being asked to:
• Scrape egg masses from trees or other surfaces, double bag them and throw them in the trash or place eggs in alcohol or hand-sanitizer to kill them. Egg masses laid in the fall are initially waxy looking, grey-brown blobs and later look like dried mud.
• Check vehicles for egg masses before leaving an infested area.
• Buy firewood locally. Do not take it with you when you leave.
• Check lawn furniture, wood products, construction materials, tarps, lawnmowers, trailers and other items stored outdoors before bringing them in for the winter, covering them or moving them.
• Do not transport brush, yard waste, or remodeling or construction waste outside quarantined areas.
Anyone who finds insects or eggs outside the quarantined area should report sightings to badbugs@pa.gov and include photos, if possible, to confirm the sightings.

Towns weigh whether to allow new mini-casinos

November 17, 2017

Towns weigh whether to allow new mini-casinos
Pennsylvania’s new law expanding its casino industry has set off debates in cities and towns around the state about whether to try to lure one of the 10 new mini-casinos created by the law, or ban them. Boosters say a casino will bring tourism, millions of dollars of investment in construction, permanent casino jobs and spin-off economic development — not to mention a cut of casino profits for the host city. Some areas of Pennsylvania are off-limits; one provision of the law eliminates Montgomery and other counties because they are already home to resort casinos. There’s also a 25-mile prohibition around the existing casinos, which puts Pennsylvania’s most heavily populated areas off-limits. Under the law, a municipality wishing to prohibit the mini-casinos must do so by passing a resolution before Jan. 1, 2018. The municipality can undo the decision later, but then that’s it — it cannot reconsider again.

Tax reform legislation and its negative impact on housing prices

November 17, 2017

Tax reform legislation and its negative impact on housing prices
The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) is opposed to the tax reform legislation that has been unveiled in the House of Representatives. The bill is a direct threat to consumers, homeowners and real estate businesses. Not only will millions of homeowners not benefit from the proposal, many will get a tax increase. Additionally, homeowners could lose substantial equity from the more than 10 percent drop in home values likely to result if the bill is enacted. NAR has created an interactive map to show the negative impact of the proposed tax reform legislation on housing prices by congressional district. View and download a side-by-side comparison of the proposed House and Senate tax legislation here. To protect homeowners, Realtors® should take action and send a message to Congress by visiting www.realtoractioncenter.com/taxreform.

Delaware County updates deed recording schedule
Delaware County’s deed recording schedule includes a $15 fee for demolition of blighted properties. This fee is part of state legislation that was signed in to law last year. It enables counties to add up to $15 for each deed and mortgage recorded, to be used for a demolition program. Since then, 11 counties have passed ordinances creating this fund and five have reported they are considering it. To view the full Recorder of Deeds fee schedule, click here.

Chadds Ford intervenes in Ridge Road suit

November 10, 2017

Chadds Ford intervenes in Ridge Road suit
Chadds Ford Township has filed a petition to intervene in the latest round of litigation involving the proposed Shops at Ridge Road and associated road improvements. In a petition filed Oct. 30, several Chadds Ford residents expressed concern that they had lost representation, as a suit brought by the developer against Concord Township does not include Chadds Ford as a defendant. The suit centers on a condition Concord Township required of the developer, stating that Chadds Ford, whose border is close to the proposed shopping center, would have to sign off on changes to Ridge Road. The developer, Pettinaro Construction, has said Chadds Ford has no jurisdiction over the plan. The Chadds Ford residents’ petition requests the court to allow Chadds Ford to intervene in the matter as a party defendant, as the township had been joined to an earlier suit that was dismissed. It also requests that the suit be dismissed with prejudice since it violates state rules of procedure. Chadds Ford Township Supervisors’ Chairman Frank Murphy has said that he won’t sign off on the changes until Chadds Ford residents’ concerns over road safety and increased traffic are addressed. Chadds Ford Township supervisors scheduled a resident forum on the matter for Wednesday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m.

Edgmont tees up 167 units at country club site

November 10, 2017

Edgmont tees up 167 units at country club site
Edgmont supervisors approved the tentative plan for 167 residential units on the former site of the Edgmont Country Club. In the Planned Residential Development process, tentative approval is equivalent to preliminary plan approval. Developers now must return to supervisors for final approval and can be expected to satisfy all the comments and conditions in the prior tentative decision. After purchasing the entire property of about 200 acres in March 2016, Ridgewood Real Estate Partners, based in New Jersey, has created a development consisting of 73 detached single-family detached and 94 single-family attached homes, and carefully worked on retaining the natural resources. While the process has taken close to two years, Ridgewood’s consideration of design standards and environmental concerns has earned the support of township supervisors and planners.
