Child Custody Procedures In Pennsylvania
Although every county has a different procedure, the first step in a custody dispute is generally a conciliation conference if you and your child’s co-parent are not living together. This is a relatively informal meeting in which a lawyer called the “master” or “hearing officer” leads you and your co-parent through an attempt to negotiate a settlement. If the conciliation conference does not lead to an agreement, depending on what issues remain, the next step is either a master’s hearing, in which the master hears testimony and issues a ruling, or to a hearing with the family court judge. There are 16 factors the judge must consider when rendering a decision, so a custody trial can be quite complex.
We have spent decades representing parents at each stage of the process. Our attorneys have rightfully earned a reputation for using the law to assertively pursue a fair, secure and sustainable custody plan. Most of all, we do everything possible to make sure you will still be your children’s parent now and for years to come.
