Understanding Guidance For Child Custody Matters

No legal matter is more important than one that affects the relationship you have with your child. When a child custody issue arises, it must be handled with care and understanding.

If you are seeking legal guidance for a child custody matter in Pennsylvania, the attorneys at Vollen Anderson Long, LLC, are here for you. We handle a broad range of family law matters for clients in Pittsburgh and throughout surrounding areas.

Protecting Your Parental Rights And The Best Interests Of Your Child

We can provide you with useful advice and strong representation in all matters related to child custody, including legal and physical custody.

  • Legal custody refers to decisions over important aspects of the child’s life, including education, health care and religion.
  • Physical custody refers to who actually is in possession of the child and where the child holds residence.

Family courts generally prefer an arrangement in which both parents play a meaningful role in the child’s life, absent issues such as abuse and neglect.

The specific details of a custody and visitation arrangement may require significant negotiation, but we are here to guide you and protect your rights every step of the way.

We are adept at achieving favorable outcomes through negotiation and alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation. When the other party refuses to be reasonable, however, we are always prepared for strong litigation.
