Divorces and disputes over child custody and visitation are one of the most tolling disputes in the legal process. The process is draining on both parties. We help our clients reach the overall goal they wish to achieve using the best means possible. We try to find a solution that is mutually beneficial, while at the same time attempting to avoid any trauma associated with the dispute from resonating with either the adults or children involved in the case.
Very often, agreements can be reached that still have the same favorable outcome as going to court, but instead, the trauma of trial and testifying against family members is avoided.
We help our clients navigate the processes of:
Child and Spousal Support
Anger Management and Battery Intervention Programs
The Child Custody Process Depending on whether the party is seeking to obtain full or partial custody, a petition must be filed with the local court requesting a review of the parents affairs. Evidence must be gathered to show that a parent is fit to be the sole or partial parent that the child lives with, or that visitation by one parent should be allowed. If a parent wishes to end the custody and or visitation rights of the other parent, it must be shown that it is not in the child's best interest to associate with the other parent.
The Divorce Process Some meetings and appearances related to divorce may not require the presence of either party. While attempting to eliminate the stress and emotional drain of a divorce, we will advocate that you receive what you are entitled to from marriage. Once a petition for divorce is filed with the court, further review and or negotiation is required to determine which assets will be kept by each party to the divorce. Almost all property acknowledged during a marriage constitutes "marital property" and is permitted in the consideration of who receives the portions. If an agreement is reached outside of court, it is possible for the court to adopt the agreement as its order.
Process for Support Pennsylvania children are entitled to the support of BOTH parents. This includes, but is not limited to financial, medical, and educational support. If a parent with custody of children is not receiving adequate support from the other parent, he or she may petition a local court for an order that the other parent support the child. It can be a lengthy process, especially if the parent support is claimed against disputes paternity or maternity. The court will look at the incomes, assets, educational levels, and other factors of both parents when determining who should support and to what degree, the child.
