Child Support

No matter the other circumstances surrounding divorce and custody issues, child support will be a factor in your case.  You will either be asked to pay it or you will be the one receiving it.  Because courts can exercise some level of discretion in setting the amount to be paid, it is important to have a team of lawyers who understand completely your rights and the current laws governing child support.

We are knowledgeable on the most current laws governing divorce and recognize that every situation is unique.  We have over 20 years of experience in handling the most complex child support cases in all counties of Western Pennsylvania (i.e., Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Washington, Westmoreland Counties.).  We will work tirelessly to provide you with a cost and time efficient resolution.

You will go to any length to preserve your relationship with your children and ensure that they are happy. If that means fighting for your rights during your divorce or custody dispute, then that is what you will do.  We are compassionate family law attorneys committed to the highest quality of legal services through experience, integrity, and teamwork.  Our attorneys have a successful track record of handling a wide range of divorce and family law matters.
