Same-sex partner restricted from custody

Courts have been facing new issues after legal rights were granted to same-sex couples. In a unique case, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently ruled that a woman was not the legal parent of her same-sex partner's biological son. The court denied her request for partial child custody.

Court changes shared custody standard

Custody disputes are often difficult and complicated. Until recently, Pennsylvania family courts reviewed only four standards when making shared child custody decisions. Recently, however, a state appeals court changed the factors that local courts must consider when they rule on custody decisions.

Helping you resolve child custody issues

For most parents, their focus is on their children. The many decisions made on a yearly, monthly, weekly and daily basis are likely for them and their best interests. Thus, when a marriage comes to an end, divorcing parents will base their decisions on their child and children. However, the wishes of each parent along with the needs of the child can often clash. One parent may seek to remain in the family home while the other desires to live closer to their work. This can present some logistical issues, especially if one parent seeks primary custody or there is a greater distance between parents.
