Child Custody Lawyer Philadelphia
Serving Bucks County, Northeast Philadelphia, and Montgomery County
As the parent of the child or children, you naturally have custody of them. As a parent, it is expected of you to physically care for the child by providing food, shelter, and other essentials such as clothing and nurturing. You are also innately expected to make decisions for the child or children until they are of legal age to do so themselves. Such as determining if you want them to be homeschooled or attend a public or private school, or any medical decisions that need to be made.
However, it is possible that someone challenges your natural right to the custody of your child. These situations can quickly become complicated. You may need additional family law assistance from a custody lawyer to truly get the outcome that you feel is best for your child or children or fight for your right to care for them.

Our experienced Philadelphia Child Custody Lawyers are prepared to guide you through your legal options as a parent/guardian. We want you to feel safe in knowing that you were appropriately represented and defended.
There are many reasons that parents or guardians file for custody, with the most frequent being Divorce. While there are other reasons for pursuing custodial rights, including disputes between unmarried couples who have children. This process is often complicated, and the results are limited. At the Philadelphia law firm of Velter Yurovsky Zoftis Sokolson, LLC, our family law attorney will strive to make a complicated process easier.
Parents and guardians almost always vie for custody with the goal of creating the best possible environment for the child or children. However, the possibilities through the courts are typically limited to two overall agreements: sole custody and joint custody.
In the case of sole custody, one parent or guardian is deemed the primary caregiver. They have full both physical and legal custody as far as the child or children are concerned. This limits the other parent to visitation rights, which are strictly delineated by the courts.
Meanwhile, joint custody is a legal agreement between both parents that characterizes what each parent or guardian is responsible for. While it appears more amicable, a breach in the agreement could lead to a review of the case and conditions and overturn the agreement. This can create the possibility for one parent to revise the agreement with more leverage or even pursue sole custody.
