Whether it is part of a divorce or as a stand-alone legal proceeding, if child custody or child support matters are being decided, you deserve representation that can help you protect your relationship with your child and ensure that you are treated fairly when it comes to child support.
Under Pennsylvania law, child custody has two components:
- Legal custody — This is the right to make key decisions regarding your child's upbringing such as regarding religion, health care and education.
- Physical custody — This is the right to spend time with your child. Parents can share this right equally, or one parent can have primary custody with the other parent having what is known as partial physical custody.
We can help you with all of your child custody needs.
Child support in Pennsylvania is determined through a formula that is part of our state guidelines. The formula looks at both parents' incomes, and allows for deviations based on costs related to insurance, education and special needs. The guidelines are only designed to determine child support for children of parents who make less than $30,000 combined per month. Above that, the rules change. Our firm has experience with the full range of incomes and issues that can affect your child support determination.
When circumstances change, court orders should as well. We can help with any requests for or objections to modifications to child custody or support.
