Understanding the various complexities of child custody


The city of brotherly love has seen its share of acrimonious battles over child custody lawsuits. Biological parents and guardians of minor children often seek sole or primary custody of these children thinking they know what is in their best interest. However, the courts ultimately decide what is in the best interests of the children concerned. The attorneys at Testa & Pagnanelli LLC often consult with various school authorities as well as neighbors, the child's medical practitioner, relatives and other concerned parties in order to ascertain that the best interests of the child may lay with one parent having primary or sole custody.

Requirements to petition for child custody in Pennsylvania


For families with minor children, divorce is often a highly emotional process. Because most Pennsylvania parents want to remain fully involved in their children's lives, questions about who will get child custody and who might need to adapt to seeing their kids less often can lead to difficult decisions for the courts. Does a judge mandate sole custody to one parent or shared custody to both?

Shared parenting can make a difference in child custody disputes


In Philadelphia, the best interests of the child is the focal point of all child custody issues. However, in divorce, divorcing parents often forget the fact that their children's future is on the line in every child custody dispute. In most cases, one parent often aims to gain the sole custody of the child without considering the feelings of the other parent who may also want to have a relationship with the child. Limited visitation rights will be difficult for the non-custodial parent and for the child as well.
