The Uniqueness Of A Brother- Sister Firm

Of course being a brother- sister team has brought Maria N. Testa and Enrico J. Pagnanelli some attention as a family law firm. But it is our diligent efforts to provide effective negotiation and when necessary litigation to our clients that really sets us apart.

Determining paternity

In Pennsylvania, a father without custody may stil have responsibilities to provide child support for medical expenses and everyday expenses and assist with other legal obligations. Paternity also gives the father certain legal rights.

The unequal single parent challenges

Seeking and obtaining child custody and assuring just and reasonable child support in Pennsylvania can raise many legal issues. But single fathers and mothers may also confront unique problems and inequities after divorce and during custody. Perceptions among the courts and other parents concerning single parenting may need to change because of progress in gender equality, single fathers seeking more custody rights and to assure the best interests of the children.

Pennsylvania divorce is governed by state law and county court procedures addressing spousal support, child support, custody, property division and other issues. Members of the military, however, may have to deal with federal laws that govern military benefits, access to commissaries and other privileges and court proceedings.
