Child Custody

Chester County Child Custody Lawyers

Decisions over how child custody time will be divided can be very difficult, frustrating and even frightening. It is important for parents to remember that no matter how challenging a child custody dispute is, it is even harder on your children. It is important to try to keep focus on achieving a solution that is in the best interests of your children. Sometimes, this means some give and take until a custody agreement can be reached that is fair and everyone can live with. Other times, it is clear that the best interests of the children will only be served by going to court.

At the law office of Donze & Donze, our attorneys are your attentive, trustworthy and effective legal advocates as we pursue resolution to custody disputes either through mediation or trial.

Issues When Determining Child Custody

  • How willing is the other parent to honor frequent and continuing contact by both parents?
  • Has there been abusive contact by either of the parents in the past?
  • Does one parent offer more stability for the children during this difficult transition?
  • Are both parents willing and able to share in important decisions involving the children — and actually come to an agreement?

In most situations, it is in the interests of the children for the parents to work out a child custody agreement that involves shared parenting. Although the children may reside primarily with one parent (physical custody), both parents should be given time for parenting, nurturing and guiding — either as the primary custodial parent, or as the parent with ample visitation time (parenting time). We can help you negotiate a child custody and visitation agreement that serves the best interests of your children and preserves your interests as a parent.
