Individuals in Pennsylvania may be interested to learn that a woman was allowed to serve divorce papers using Facebook when she was unable to locate her husband by other means.

How is custody or visitation determined for same sex couples?

On May 20, 2014, same-sex couples in Pennsylvania were granted the freedom to marry. And without a stay accompanying the ruling, marriages could commence among same-sex couples immediately.
