Obtaining Fair Child Custody Outcomes
Coming to terms with the fact that you will no longer be able to put your child to bed each night is an aspect of divorce that is perhaps one of the most jarring and difficult to stomach. The process for determining custody can be lengthy and often complex and emotionally taxing. Each family is different, and each parent deserves a lawyer who will take the time to understand these differences and plan for a future that supports healthy development and loving relationships.

Pennsylvania defines custody as legal and physical. Legal custody pertains to the decision-making about a child’s schooling, day care, religion, health care and more. Physical custody relates to where the child will spend his or her time. Custody can be shared or one parent can be granted primary custody and the other partial custody.
