House Approves Child Custody Changes

The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has approved changes to the child custody system. The bill that has been approved will intend to ensure that both parents are treated equally in child custody matters. It is intended to stop the assumption that custody should be awarded based on gender as many mothers are given custody for that reason alone. Now, courts will consider other factors such as which parent will encourage and permit contact with the other parent and the need for stability in a child's life.
