Reasons You May Need a Child Custody Lawyer

There are several situations in which your ability to care for your child may be jeopardized:


If you and your spouse are separating and getting a divorce, chances are that the courts will need to determine a child custody arrangement. You may be able to work out a shared custody agreement, or the court may rule that one spouse will have primary physical custody, leaving the other parent with visitation rights.

Child Protective Services (CPS):

If CPS believes that you are an unfit or abusive parent, they could potentially remove your children from your custody. CPS will have to prove that you are unfit, abusive, or a neglectful parent to do so.

Paternity dealings:

If you are the legal father of a child but do not have custody because you were not married to the child’s mother, you may be able to petition for custody after establishing paternity. I can represent you in such a case and help to prove why you deserve to have a significant role in your child’s life.


Even if you and your spouse have not divorced- or if you had a child outside of marriage with your partner but you have since separated-there are child custody arrangements to make. I can advocate for your rights when it comes to these arrangements to make sure you play an active role in your children’s life.


In Pennsylvania, a relocation is defined as a change in a residence of the child which significantly impairs the ability of a non-relocating party to exercise custodial rights. A parent can relocate with a child if one of two conditions are satisfied: (1) the non-relocating parent consents to the relocation; or (2) the relocating parents is granted approval by the court to relocate with the child. The procedure for relocating can be confusing to a layperson. I can advocate for your rights and walk you through the issue of a relocation of a child whether you are the parenting seeking to relocate with a child or you are the parent who needs to challenge a proposed relocation. I have won over 90% of my cases involving relocations.
