Family Law Cases We Handle

Choosing a family law attorney to help with your case can be difficult. How do you know which is the right one for you? Your decision can be based on several factors, such as the potential lawyer’s response time, past clients’ reviews, and how you felt during your interactions with the firm. You may also consider basing your choice on the type of matters the attorney has experience with. If they haven’t directly handled family law cases before, they might not have the know-how and insights to competently guide you through all the stages of the process.

At Testa & Pagnanelli, LLC, family law is one of our primary practice areas. We have helped clients facing all kinds of issues.

Our family law lawyers in Chester County provide representation for:

  • Divorce: We can help prepare documents, ensure you meet residency and filing requirements, and work tirelessly to pursue favorable outcomes inside or outside the courtroom.
  • Alimony: Whether you are the requesting spouse or may be ordered to pay, we can seek a fair spousal support amount.
  • Child custody and visitation: Parents can be awarded sole or joint physical custody (concerning possession and control of the child) and/or sole or joint legal custody (concerning making decisions on the child’s behalf). Our team will work toward obtaining a resolution in the best interest of your child and family.
  • Child support: Both parents have a responsibility to financially support their child. If they’re not together, one parent may be ordered to pay the other child support. Whether you are the receiving or paying spouse, we can ensure that the court considers relevant factors when deciding the amount.
  • Domestic violence: If you are being hurt or reasonably fear being harmed by someone you are in an intimate or close relationship with, we can help you seek a Protection from Abuse Order to stop the individual from contacting, harassing, or abusing you.
  • Estate planning: Our team can help you develop a comprehensive estate plan to preserve your assets and express your wishes on how your property is distributed to heirs and beneficiaries after your death.
  • High-asset divorce: If you or your spouse have significant and/or valuable assets, your divorce can get extremely complicated. Our attorneys can dedicate the time and resources to pursue just resolutions in your case.
  • Mediation: A member of our team can serve as a neutral third party to help you and your spouse work through your differences and settle matters out of court. This method often costs less and takes less time than litigation.
  • Support or custody modifications: If your circumstances have changed, your current custody or support orders may no longer be feasible. We can help you request a modification with the court.
