Child Custody and Visitation

One of the most contentious and stressful of all legal issues is child custody. At Staley O’Gorman Family Law Practice, we understand that there is nothing more important to you than your children.

When making a child custody and visitation determination, Pennsylvania courts will evaluate the best interests of the child. Generally, no one factor is determinative, including the stated preference of a child for custody. A court will consider all relevant circumstances, including the historical parenting roles of the parents, sibling relationships, availability of extended family, attempts by one parent to alienate the other, the level of conflict between the parties, criminal history or history of drug or alcohol abuse by a parent and each parent’s availability to provide care during periods of child custody.

Whether you believe an amicable parenting plan can be negotiated or you know that an emotionally charged custody battle is on the horizon, we can provide the representation you need to ensure that your rights, and the rights of your children, are protected. We offer experienced and compassionate representation in all types of child custody disputes, including:
