This will change the Waiting Period for Contested Divorce Cases in Pennsylvania from two-years to ONE YEAR. The new law will apply only to new cases and will not be retroactive. Once signed, it is expected to be effective in 60 days.

PA Supreme Court issues decision on Grandparent Custody Case

On September 9, 2016 the Pennsylvania Supreme Court issued an opinion in D.P. and B.P. v. G.J.P and A.P., which greatly impacts grandparent standing in Custody matters in Pennsylvania. This decision was limited in that the Court addressed only the specific issues in the case before it, but included an analysis of prior cases decided by the Court and a review of the law as currently written. The decision represents a big change for the rights of unmarried parents, and could result in future changes to the Statute by the legislature.
