Paternity presumption in Pennsylvania may be archaic but still valid in this state. It is one of only a few states that maintain this presumption of paternity. Our Commonwealth's law, with its goal of supporting an intact family unit, has resulted in husbands supporting children who are not their biological offspring.

Grandparents have custody rights in Pennsylvania: good news for some, bad news for others. What does this mean for grandparents or parents? Take a look. Grandparents are considered third parties when seeking custody of their grandchildren. However, grandparents have been granted special status allowing them to pursue legal or physical custody (excluding shared physical), of their grandchildren. First, grandparents must show that the proposed arrangement is in the child's best interests and will not interfere with the relationship between the parent and child. Although grandparent's visitation statutes are controversial, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ruled them constitutional and has found such statutes to be a means to protect the emotional well-being of children estranged from their grandparents.
