    I would think that it's always best to have an attorney. An attorney could elicit all relevant facts and draft a petition/motion that will best try to accomplish what you want.

    There is no set legal age where the girls can choose. However, and the children get older, their opinion, provided it is well-reasoned, holds more weight with the Court.

    There's nothing illegal about it. However, if father wishes to challenge the shared custody order, he could try and make an issue out of it. If he tries to modify custody based upon this, I would seek legal representation.

    I would suggest filing a petition to modify custody so that you can change the custody order to one that is in your daughter's best interest.

    It depends...sometimes retired judges stay on as 'senior judges'. They have been known to keep some of their prior cases. However, others get handed to another judge. It's hard to say.

    You need to file an appeal to the overpayment and get an attorney to handle your hearing. Look at the paperwork carefully - you don't want to miss the appeal deadline. Best of luck.

    Is it that you want exclusive possession of the marital residence, or something else?

  10. Changing Child support at the end of a 6 month agreement

    What kind of agreement? Was it an agreement through Domestic Relations, or a private agreement? There are certain 'support guidelines', which can be found in the Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure book, that serve as a guideline as to how much child support you would be ordered to pay, should the two of you go through Domestic Relations. I would suggest you arrange a full consultation with an attorney to discuss your child support options, and the amount you would be expected to pay.
