Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. Does the closure of PA schools mean the school year has ended and we should start end of School year custody?
A: Every county is issuing updated directives. One that was just issued is copied below: “In Westmoreland County, there have been questions from counsel and litigants pertaining to Governor Wolf's directive closing all schools in PA for the remainder of the school year and whether that will affect custody orders. The answer is no. Summer custody orders take effect on the date that school would normally have ended for the school year. The school year schedule for custody remains in effect until that date for all Westmoreland County custody orders.”
Q. How do i sign away my parental rights without having to pay any child support.
A: If everyone agreed, mom’s new husband could do a step-parent adoption, which would end your parental rights and support obligation.
Q. In the divorce decree, it states that we both waive child support and alimony. Can I (a year later) change my mind?
A: You can file for child support. Regardless of what agreement says, support for children can’t be waived.
