Child Custody is a term used to describe the legal and practical relationship of a child to his or her parents with regard to care and decision-making. If you’re reading this, your definition may be quite different right now. I can help you understand and explain the rights of a mother in a child custody case, and guide you through your options at my Holland, PA, law firm.
Custody may feel like a weapon used by a misguided parent to threaten and bully a former partner. It may feel like a tool to gain leverage in a divorce or avoid financial responsibility for children. Tragically, it might even be a venue to retry unresolved issues in a failed relationship.
Make no mistake; it should be none of these.
I represent child-focused parents in issues of custody and support. If you have concerns about the physical and emotional well being of your children related to custody, you will likely need focused, experienced representation. The once steadfast presumption that mothers were the best caregivers for their children has been challenged as issues of gender roles and work have changed the definition of parent. I know the relevant issues and pivotal evidence that judges rely on in their decision-making and will assemble an aggressive advocacy of the best resolution for your children.
Whether you are facing a custody matter related to divorce or after an initial arrangement fails, I can provide not only a skilled practice of Family Law issues in Pennsylvania and 35 years of experience and familiarity with the courts and judges, but also the compassion of a devoted father and grandfather.
Please do not hesitate to call me today to discuss your situation.
