Child Custody

Deciding where your child or children will live and how much time he, she, or they will spend with each parent may be one of the most difficult decisions you will ever have to make. If you and your spouse are having difficulty coming to an agreement on a custody arrangement, you may be tempted to stop negotiations and put your case in the hands of a judge.

At Eidelman & Associates, we encourage families to resolve their child custody disputes outside of the courtroom. Not only does this save you the time and cost of litigation, it also allows you to remain in control of important decisions made about your children and their future.

Our skilled attorneys are dedicated to helping you resolve child custody disputes through negotiation and mediation. If negotiations fail, you can rest assured that as experienced litigators, we will not hesitate to protect your interests in the courtroom.

Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton Custody Attorneys

There are several different custody arrangements available in Pennsylvania. Typically, unless extreme conditions exist, both parents will have joint legal custody. One parent may have primary physical custody or both parents may have partial physical custody. The court system encourages parents to develop a custody arrangement and parenting time plan that reflects their child’s best interests. Our attorneys can help you create an agreement that takes your children’s best interests into account and is acceptable to the courts.

If you and your spouse are unable to come to an agreement, a judge will hear your case. The court will evaluate all of the facts surrounding your case and consider several factors such as the child’s preference (if the child is of a reasonable age), the moral fitness and mental health of each parent and more when determining the best interests of your children. Once the judge makes a decision, it will be very difficult to change. As skilled Allentown child custody lawyers, we will represent your interests in the courtroom and help ensure your agreement is fair.

Litigation of child custody disputes is very time consuming and costly. It also may not produce the results you are looking for. That is why we encourage parents to come to an agreement about child custody.
