Shared Custody

Montgomery County Shared Custody Attorneys

Many parents in the Montgomery County area choose to work out a shared custody agreement because it is often in the best interests of the child to maintain a relationship with both parents.

At Testa & Pagnanelli, LLC, in Philadelphia, we believe that shared child custody agreements are right for most families. Our attorneys have years of experience helping parents work out enforceable joint custody agreements that promote a continued relationship between each parent and his or her child.

What Is Shared Custody?

There are two main types of custody: physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody refers to the subject child's physical time with each parent, while legal custody refers to who can make important decisions on behalf of the child. In general, shared custody means both parents have physical and legal custody.

Why Choose Joint Custody?

No matter how you feel about your ex-spouse or partner, your child is what really matters when it comes to child custody. Although there are some exceptions, many parents ultimately decide that their children deserve to have strong relationships with both of their parents. A shared custody agreement allows for this.

In addition to determining a custody agreement, we can help you work out a parenting plan that make sense for you and is minimally disruptive to your child's life.
