Knowledgeable Counsel for Divorce in Chester County
When two people get married, they hope marriage dissolution will never be a part of the picture. Sadly, reality often dictates otherwise. Sometimes, one of the spouses does something so awful that the other spouse simply cannot go on as a couple. Everyone changes over the course of life, and, sometimes, people change so much they’re no longer the same person they were when they married. When a marriage no longer functions and the people in the marriage wish to move on with their lives, it’s time to consider divorce.
Even when the process is amicable, it’s a frightening ordeal to face. You have built a life with your spouse, and a divorce in Pennsylvania means unraveling that life. There are many ways to approach this including: no-fault, at-fault, collaborative, seeking mediation or litigating. It can be a significant challenge to choose which one is right for you.
Our experienced West Chester family attorneys will look at your circumstances and your goals, and advise you on what path is a best fit for you. We’ll take a hard, objection look at you situation and be frank and forthcoming with our analysis. We will always be honest with you.
A marriage may end, but there still remains the custody and care of children. For custody decisions, there is the issue of who gets legal and physical custody, and whether that custody will be shared, sole, primary, partial or supervised. Legal custody is the right to make decisions for the child, including decisions about medical issues, education, and religious upbringing. Physical custody means actual physical control of the child. As a parent, both are tremendously important and we can help.
It costs a great deal to raise a child. In Pennsylvania, the non-custodial parent may be required to pay a certain amount monthly as child support. A family lawyer in Chester County from our firm can represent your interests, whether you are the custodial parent seeking to be fairly compensated for the expenses of raising a child, the non-custodial parent who has fallen on hard times and needs a modification of a child support order, or any other child support situation.
