Allegheny County Cases Online - Allegheny County provides good online access. You can access your Allegheny County case online
here. Enter your case number (ex: FD10 12345) to access your case. Family Division
cases begin with FD. If you do not have your case number, you can search
by name but you will need to register to do so. Fortunately, registration
is free and easy. Most court pleadings are available in PDF form. However,
many support papers are not available online.
Washington County Cases Online - Washington County provides poor online access. Follow the prompts. Family cases are in the
civil division. Unfortunately, only the barest of case histories is available
for free online. More is available for paid subscription, but you cannot
access the filed papers even with a paid subscription.
Pennsylvania Statutes Online - Each state has its own set of family laws. Pennsylvania family law is largely
found in Title 23 of the consolidated Pennsylvania statutes which can be found
here. Pennsylvania statutes form the overarching family law in Pennsylvania.
However, local county rules, individual judicial rules and "unwritten
rules" are often just as important. The rough hierarchy for family
laws and rules (highest law is first) is: (a) state statutes (b) caselaw
(court opinions that explain and define state law) (c) local rule (d)
local manual (e) judicial rules. There are also hierarchies within each
area (for example, Supreme Court decisions trump Superior Court decisions).
In addition, other types of laws (such as Federal bankruptcy and pension
statutes) also intersect with family law.
Pennsylvania Child Support Online - You can find forms, enforcement information, and other child support related
here. However, their child support calculator can be inaccurate, depending
on a variety of factors.
CHIP Insurance - Children should be covered by medical insurance. ALL children in Pennsylvania
are eligible for CHIP. Income determines the amount (if any) you must
pay for the CHIP insurance. Find out about CHIP
