Child Custody

In Pennsylvania the issue of primary importance in every custody action is, “what is in the best interest of your child.” We explain the factors considered in this determination.

Some parents can agree to custody terms but are concerned about whether the agreement should be in writing and whether they must go to court to have a formal agreement. We will explain the value of an agreement and draft an agreement that conforms to state and local rules.

If parties cannot agree what is in the best interest of the child, we will explain and guide you through the litigation process. We will assist in getting the necessary experts and reports.

If you have a custody order in place and need to modify or enforce it, we will represent you in this process and explain the state and local rules that impact your case. We also represent clients seeking or defending actions with respect to grandparent visitation or custody. We will apply Pennsylvania law to your facts, assess the potential results, negotiate a settlement, or litigate the matter.
