Common Questions That We Receive About Family Law
Regardless of whether you are a first-time family law client or someone with a long history of family law concerns, you may have questions such as those below. We are here to answer and guide you forward.
Is hiring a family law attorney in Pennsylvania worthwhile?
As the saying goes, it is better to be safe than sorry. If you are approaching a divorce, you should keep in mind that your future financial stability will be greatly affected by the outcome of your case. With a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer on your side, you can be assured that all essential areas will be properly addressed, such as health insurance coverage for a lower-earning spouse or the allocation of retirement accounts. If child custody and/or child support are being determined, your attorney can help you document your parenting activities and otherwise prepare to make a positive impression on the judge in your case.
When can I modify a child custody or support agreement?
You will need to convince the family law court that substantial differences in circumstances warrant a modification. For example, maybe you or the other parent will be deployed abroad as part of your military service and you want a grandparent to have the right to visitation in place of the missing parent. Or maybe you or your child’s other parent has experienced a significant rise or fall in income or your child has been diagnosed with a learning disability and needs tutoring or therapy. Documenting the needs or changes is part of the process of pursuing a modification of a court order.
How do Pennsylvania family law courts split up property in a divorce?
Family court judges expect to see “equitable distribution” of marital assets when people are divorcing. This may mean, for example, that if you supported your spouse through medical school or in the process of starting up a business, you have the right to expect your property division agreement to reflect that.
