  • Can my boyfriend have a PFA dropped?

    On January 9th my boyfriend and I (of two years) got into an argument and it turned into a huge fight. He left and went in and filed for a PFA. Our court date is on the 18th of January. If he wants to have it dropped will they drop it?

    Laura’s Answer

    Typically, yes. Of course, it is up to the discretion of the Court. I have usually only seen a Court refuse to drop a case in extreme abuse cases. Best of luck.

  • Motion to Reconsider

    Will the same judge hear the motion even if she retired after entering the judgement? Or they will assign it to another Judge? Thank you!

    Laura’s Answer

    It depends...sometimes retired judges stay on as 'senior judges'. They have been known to keep some of their prior cases. However, others get handed to another judge. It's hard to say.

  • Can i legally establish visitation rights with my grandson if his parents are not together?

    Grandson is 14 yrs. old. Have not seen him in 2 yrs. His mother cut off all contact with him and I. She and my son never married and do not have any contact with each other now. What are my rights?

    Laura’s Answer

    You should have a right to some sort of visitation or partial custody of your grandson, provided that such relationship would not interfere with his parent-child relationship. I would suggest you consult with an attorney and plan on filing a motion to join in an already existing custody action, or initiate one.

  • Child Custody

    I am interested of getting custody of my daughter wether it be full/part. Do i need a lawyer for this and if so how much would it cost me?

    Laura’s Answer

    Every attorney charges their own unique hourly rate. I think you can find someone for under 200 an hour. You would want to compare prices, try and price someone in your area first, as they will not have to travel far to court. If that doesn't work out, then you may have to hire someone out of the area.

    You need to file an appeal to the overpayment and get an attorney to handle your hearing. Look at the paperwork carefully - you don't want to miss the appeal deadline. Best of luck.

    Grandparents DO have rights in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I highly suggest you retain an attorney so that you can get sound legal advice before going forward. I wish you the best of luck.

  • Child Custody Decision

    I read the factors the judge shall for child custody, and I would like to know how can a judge disregard those factors and use her discretion. Is this legal, and what can I do about it?

    Laura’s Answer

    I would suggest you contact an attorney immediately. There is the possibility of appealing her decision, but there are certain requirements to making an appeal work. Plus, it might not be the best way to get what you want. You can also Petition to Modify Custody or file a Motion for Reconsideration. I wish you the best of luck.
