Child Custody Philadelphia Lawyer

In Pennsylvania Custody Law, the court decides based upon what is the best interest and welfare of the child (or children). The judge could choose from multiple outcomes including sole custody, joint custody and different visitation options. Many factors are calculated into the final decision such as the child's preference, the emotional/physical well being of the parent and of course, any history of criminal activity or physical abuse.  Click here to learn more about Child Custody Law from a Philadelphia Lawyer.


Divorce Philadelphia Lawyer

Dividing the Property

There are many implications in diving "marital" property. For divorcing couples, the judge will take into consideration:

  • Marriage Length and Prior Marriages

  • The contribution of one to the other's source of income and education

  • Which parent gets full custody or see if joint custody



Alimony is spousal support and monetary contributions from one to another. A judge can issue alimony, but only if it is needed. Additionally, it might be temporary. Alimony factors are similar to the one's listed above.


Child Support

Pennsylvania law states child support is based on a formula that considers the income of both parents and the number of children.
