Resolving Difficult Child Custody And Visitation Issues

When a couple parts ways — either through divorce or because they were never married to begin with — every family member is affected. A parent's relationship with his or her child may be particularly endangered.

At the Pennsylvania law firm of Casale & Bonner, P.C., our Williamsport child custody lawyers are knowledgeable advocates on behalf of both mothers and fathers in these often highly contentious and emotionally charged cases. Together, our attorneys have more than 160 combined years of legal experience.

We can assist you with a wide range of parenting plan issues, including:

  • Physical custody: If you have sole physical custody, your child will reside with you all of the time. Joint physical custody means that the child will spend overnights with both parents on a regular basis. The number of overnights spent with each parent can significantly affect the amount of child support.
  • Legal custody: If you have legal custody, you have the right to make decisions on behalf of your child in regard to education, health care, finances, religious upbringing and more. In most cases, both parents share legal custody of their children.
  • Visitation: If you are not the primary custodial parent, you will likely be granted visitation rights instead. Grandparents and other family members can also seek visitation rights under certain circumstances.

Although we are experienced litigators, we know that taking child custody disputes to trial is often detrimental to both the child and the parent. We will work hard to help you resolve your concerns out of court in the most amicable and efficient manner possible.
