Areas of Practice
WHAT A FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY CAN DO FOR YOU
Most people think of a family law attorney as someone you hire when you decide to get a divorce. However, a family law attorney can provide guidance in a wide variety of other types of cases. These matters include:
Starting a child custody action on behalf of a parent or grandparent
Modifying an existing child custody order
Starting an action for child support or spousal support
Modifying an existing child support or spousal support order
Preparing and negotiating prenuptial agreements
Preparing and negotiating postnuptial agreements
Although you can search Google for an answer or buy a prepackaged legal program, these types of sources should not be used to make decisions regarding your family’s future or to replace the advice of an experienced family law attorney. For example, although the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania regarding custody, support, and divorce are the same throughout the state, each of the counties in Pennsylvania has its own local rules. These local rules govern everything from what can be filed with the court to what color the paper needs to be in order for a document to be accepted for filing. These local rules vary widely and can have a major impact on how you decide to move forward with any family law issue. Therefore, the internet can be a useful tool to help you become a more knowledgeable legal consumer, but it should never replace the advice of an experienced attorney.
