How Child Custody Is Determined In Pennsylvania

In Pennsylvania, custody and visitation arrangements can take many different forms. One parent may have primary physical custody of a child while the other has visitation, or parents may have shared custody. Courts determine custody based on the "best interests of the child." Several factors are evaluated in this determination, including:

  • Each parent's ability to provide a stable and loving home and attend to the child's physical, emotional, developmental and educational needs
  • Any history of drug or chemical dependency or physical abuse
  • The current status quo
  • The ability of each parent to foster a relationship between the child and the other parent
  • The child's relationship with siblings
  • The preference of the child

At Louis Wm. Martini, Jr., P.C., we will work closely with you to pursue the custody arrangement that is right for your family. We can also help you modify existing child custody and visitation orders when one parent relocates or other life changes require an adjustment to the parenting plan or child support order.

In addition to helping parents in Pennsylvania obtain child custody and visitation orders, we also represent parents who are involved in international child custody disputes.

We Will Help You Stay In Control

It's your life, it's your child, and you should make the decisions. Many child custody disputes end up in court where a judge has the power to determine where your children live and how often you see them.

At Louis Wm. Martini, Jr., P.C., we encourage most clients to resolve their custody disputes through negotiation and settlement. By staying out of court, you can make sure custody arrangements are truly in your children's best interests. However, if litigation is necessary to protect your parental rights and your children, attorney Louis Martini will fight for you in court.
