Our Pittsburgh Family Law Practice

Dissolution Of Marriage:

Whether you are in the process of filing for divorce, are considering a divorce, or are currently in the middle of Pennsylvania divorce proceedings, our Pittsburgh divorce lawyers can provide you with the advice and help you may need on what is often a complicated and difficult time in your life.

Child Support And Alimony:

A Pittsburgh divorce is very much centered on money. If you have children, the issue of child support is a central part of your case. Even if there are no minor children, spousal support is an issue that regularly comes up for our Pennsylvania divorce clients. Our attorneys have a great amount of experience handling cases that involve both Pennsylvania child support and alimony.

Child Custody:

Many of our Allegheny County divorce clients have one main concern during their divorce: their children. They want to make sure that they will still get to spend quality time with their kids and not have to be fighting with their ex for Pennsylvania child custody. If you want information on the current Pennsylvania child custody laws, our attorneys can provide you with the advice and support you need.

Property Division:

During a Western Pennsylvania divorce, the couple's property is going to be divided. So whether your Pittsburgh divorce is headed for trial or you would like to settle your issues via a Pennsylvania Marital Settlement Agreement, we can provide you with guidance on how your property will likely be divided under Pennsylvania law.
