Child Custody Law


child-custodyChild custody is one of the most emotional issues that separating parents can confront. It’s hard for both parents, but particularly difficult for the children involved. On top of that, Pennsylvania custody laws can seem confusing and even unfair.

At Daley Zucker we help parents untangle the legalese, while working to ensure your rights are protected and the best interests of the child are met. Our child custody lawyers understand Pennsylvania custody laws inside and out.

It’s never too early to hire an attorney to get the answers you need. Whether you just want to understand your rights and obligations under the law or have already received notice to appear in court, we can help!

Understanding Your Options

Child custody cases are often complex with little room for compromise. After all, deciding where children will reside and with whom isn’t the same as splitting physical assets like a home or personal belongings. This makes child custody cases more challenging.

But there are options beyond fighting your battle in open court.

Collaborative Law/Mediation

Not all child custody cases have to go to court. Through the process of collaborative law, our child custody lawyers can help you explore more amicable custody arrangements that are often more beneficial and less expensive for both sides.

Court Representation

When a battle in court is inevitable, our child custody lawyers are expert litigators, prepared to handle your case in and out of the courtroom.

Don’t try to handle your custody case on your own. Get the representation you need to move forward.
