Contact us for experienced family law representation regarding the following:

Divorce

  • Divorce: Our goal is to resolve divorce cases with a collaborative approach; however, we are prepared to litigate if it is in our client's best interest. We work with clients to determine the best strategy and discuss their options.
  • Spousal Support / Alimony / APL: We give clients a good idea of what they can expect to owe or to receive in spousal support, alimony or alimony pendente lite, which is a temporary form of alimony provided while the divorce process is ongoing.
  • Equitable Distribution / Marital Property Distribution: In Pennsylvania, family court will review 17 factors to determine a division of assets that is fair and equitable. We work diligently with our clients, as well as experts such as business valuators and forensic accountants to determine the full extent of the marital estate.

High Asset/High Income Divorce

  • Divorce - High Asset: Our practice is dedicated to handling high asset/high income divorces. We know how to effectively manage the complex legal issues that often arise.
  • Business Valuation: Proper valuation of a family business, closely-held business, or other small business interest is critical to reaching a fair property settlement agreement.
  • Divorce and Retirement Benefits: In addition to real estate investments (marital home, rental properties, vacation homes, etc.), an individual's retirement accounts may be some of the most sought after property in a divorce. We utilize experts to calculate projected retirement benefits and assess how these valuable assets should be allocated.
  • Prenuptial Agreements: Every prenuptial agreement we draft is specific, new and individual. Our goal is to protect our clients before marriage in the event of a separation, divorce or death. Prenuptial agreements in Pennsylvania are valid and careful consideration must be taken when counseling a client and drafting the agreement.
  • Postnuptial Agreements / Property Settlements: An experienced lawyer drafting your final agreement will give proper consideration to that which could occur in the future.

Child Custody and Related Issues

  • Child Custody, Visitation, and Grandparents' Rights: When determining issues of legal and physical custody, the courts primary consideration is the best interests of the children. We focus on you and your children to obtain a custody schedule which is best. We also represent the rights of grandparents' and third parties in child custody disputes.
  • Child Support: Statutory guidelines in Pennsylvania determine child support based on the income levels of both parents. However, high income cases which exceed these statutory guidelines often necessitate the assistance of an experienced litigator and negotiator. We pride ourselves on our ability to help clients either receive or pay a fair amount of child support.
  • Post Divorce Issues: We handle issues arising after divorce, including modifications to child support due to a substantial change in circumstances or modifications to custody based on the best interests of the child.

Other Family Law

  • Same-Sex Couples: Our firm offers dedicated representation to clients in the gay and lesbian community. We provide candid counsel regarding gay and lesbian rights, including child custody/adoption concerns.
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution: Mediation and Collaborative law: Whenever possible, we believe in negotiating and resolving matters outside of family court. Our collaborative approach can resolve divorce, support, custody and equitable distribution issues.
