There are several ways that child custody can be handled in Pennsylvania. From our office in Philadelphia, our child custody attorneys can help you determine:
Children are able to live with a parent who is awarded physical custody. Sometimes physical custody is shared, and other times just one parent has it while the other has visitation.
When a parent has legal custody, he or she is allowed to make major decisions for the child, including decisions about education, religion and health care. Most often, both parents are granted legal custody.
Once custody and visitation are determined, a parenting plan must be created. We can help you create a day-to-day schedule that works for you, your children and your children's other parent.
There are certain circumstances in which expediting child custody may be necessary. If that is the case for you, we have the knowledge and experience to help.
Child custody is not always a straightforward process handled by two parents. There are many other scenarios or factors that can make child custody complicated. No matter what child custody issue you are facing, we can help. We handle the following custody-related matters:
These are more likely to hold up in court and can address everything from property division to alimony but not child custody.
Whether you may be a child's father or are a mother seeking a paternity test, we can help.
Many people believe that mothers take precedence over fathers. Under the law, however, both parents are — or should be — treated equally.
Sometimes, life circumstances require a parent to move out of state or far way. If that is the case, modifications to a custody arrangement may be necessary.
