Child Custody

Before parents can address the issues of custody and visitation of their children, there must be a formally filed underlying action in the Pennsylvania family law court. This means a complaint for divorce or custody can be filed by your family law attorney.

If the parents are married, either the mother or the father’s family law attorney can file an action requesting dissolution of the marriage or file the complaint for custody and a complaint for support. We understand how difficult this time is for you and your children. The Blackwell Law Firm is here to ease you through this process in an understanding and swift manner.
