Financial Deception Is Driving Millennial Divorces


Q: What impact do finances have on divorce rates?

Is my spouse or significant other hiding something? That’s a question many people considering a divorce in Pennsylvania may be asking themselves. But while some would interpret the question as applying to infidelity, Love and Money survey by TD Bank suggests another kind of secret is behind the break-ups of many millennials.

Divorce and Updating Your Estate Plan


Q: Should I update my estate plan during my divorce?

It’s a common scenario that most married couples, especially those with children, will have an estate plan drafted at some point during their marriage. What they may lose sight of in the turmoil that can accompany getting divorced in Pennsylvania is how important reviewing and updating their estate plan is – ideally as soon as possible after filing for divorce.

State laws differ and most states have provisions that completely or partially terminate a spouse’s right to inherit from and/or act as a fiduciary for their soon-to-ex-spouse.

Reading, Pennsylvania divorce attorneys expect clients who come to them wanting a divorce to be ready-- and even eager-- to untie the knot. Common reasons people get divorced are standard “irretrievably broken or irreconcilable differences” factors including infidelity, addiction, domestic abuse, different spending habits or parenting styles, or just growing apart.

When Revenge Comes Back To Bite You


Hey ladies
When your man wanna get buck-wild
Just go back and hit 'em up style
Put your hands on his cash and spend it to the last dime
For all the hard times

-“Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!)” by Blu Cantrel 


In the early 2000s, the R&B artist Blu Cantrell topped the charts with this catchy tune that still makes me cringe every time I hear it.
