Adoption

Adoptions are very joyous times; however, this is a legal process and should be treated as such. The court has very specific steps to follow for adoptions; especially in the case where a parent is relinquishing their right and another individual (usually a step parent) is ready, willing and able to adopt the child or children.

Let’s discuss your particular adoption situation and identify what needs to be done to ensure your family enjoys this happy moment.

Child Support, Spousal Support, Alimony Pendente Lite, and Post-Divorce Alimony

Child support, spousal support, alimony pendente lite (APL) and post-divorce alimony are available in Pennsylvania and they all involve someone paying money to someone else. Each of these forms of payment and types of matter require expert legal advice to understand your financial circumstances, the financial circumstances of the other party, the law and the legal process. It is crucial that you obtain legal advice at the beginning of the process to make sure that the order the court enters is correct."
