Child Custody Laws in Central Pennsylvania

In the state of Pennsylvania, a court’s decision regarding child custody is always made in the best interest of the child. If you and your partner cannot come to an agreement about custody and parenting arrangements, the court will step in and create a plan on your behalf.

When determining custody, the court will consider the child’s:

  • Education and the location of their school
  • Medical needs
  • Mental well-being
  • Relationships with each parent/family members
  • The child’s wishes

The court’s custody order will allocate custody and any visitation rights for non-custodial parents. Parents may share custody – physical and legal custody can be shared equally. Sole custody is also an option, though it is rarely ordered.

Can You Modify a Child Custody Order?

Life changes constantly and sometimes, a child custody order that was once acceptable is no longer reflective of you and your family’s situation. Should you need to make modifications to an existing child custody order, our child custody lawyers can help, representing you and your child’s best interests. We take our time carefully crafting a strong argument that will reflect your goals.
