Harrisburg Child Custody Attorneys

Reliable Central Pennsylvania Child Custody Lawyers

Child custody matters can be some of the most highly disputed parts of any divorce proceeding. The primary focus of any custody proceeding is to ensure that the best interests of the children are taken into account. Both parents have rights in these situations, however, and it is important to have an experienced attorney who will fight to protect them.

At the law firm of Lavery Law, based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, we have helped many clients to resolve a variety of complex child custody issues including custody and visitation during separation and divorce, relocation, modification of existing custody and visitation orders, custody and visitation in unwed parent situations, contempt and enforcement of current custody orders, guardian proceedings, joint or shared custody, emergency matters, and many others. We understand how difficult custody matters can be for children and we do everything in our power to keep them away from the conflict whenever possible.

Strong Representation from Beginning to End

Our Harrisburg child custody lawyers have extensive experience negotiating parenting arrangements. It is in the parent's or custodian's best interests to reach their own agreement on child custody and visitation matters. This is the most expedient and effective way to settle the issue and move the process forward.

Understanding the Process

While procedures vary from county to county in Pennsylvania, generally speaking, if the parties don't reach agreement on their own, the next step is to meet with a custody mediator or conciliator in the appropriate county.

The custody mediator or conciliator's goal is to help you reach an agreement without the need for a court hearing. If an agreement cannot be reached through the mediator, the case will proceed to a hearing in Court to settle the matter. We will be there with you from the initial negotiations to representing you at every meeting or hearing throughout the process. We also work closely with counselors, psychologists and other professionals, as needed in any particular case, to assist the parties or address unique issues. We work diligently to resolve the case in a way that benefits you and your children both in the present and in the future.
