What Is The Difference Between Legal And Physical Custody?

Legal custody pertains to the authority of making crucial decisions for one’s child(ren), including their healthcare, academic, and religious preferences. On the other hand, physical custody determines the time when a child(ren) is under the direct supervision of a parent.

How Does The Court Determine Which Parent Has Custody?

The Pennsylvania courts prioritize determining the best interest of the child by evaluating 16 factors outlined in 23 Pa.C.S. 5328. When it comes to child custody cases, it is crucial to have an experienced attorney who can effectively navigate these factors. By providing expert guidance, they ensure all necessary considerations are taken into account to achieve a fair and just outcome for the child.

Can A Grandparent Be Awarded Custody?

Grandparents’ rights have undergone noteworthy changes in Pennsylvania. Our experienced legal team has successfully represented grandparents in Cambria County and even the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. Our unwavering commitment to our clients has yielded results that prioritize the well-being of their grandchildren.

If I Have Joint Custody, Do I Have To Pay Support?

The amount of child support is based on the income of both parents, regardless of custody arrangements. Joint custody does not prevent either parent from being responsible for child support obligations.
