Custody cases are stressful for clients. Part of that anxiety comes from the unknown about the process and procedure involved with custody cases. Most clients have never been involved in court proceedings or have never even stepped foot in a courthouse. I hope that by explaining the court process of custody actions in Pennsylvania, clients will feel a little more comfortable knowing what is to come next.
The above is a board overview of what occurs in the Central Pennsylvania area in custody actions. Each county has specific local rules that must be followed and some procedural matters may be different. To discuss the specifics of your case and the local rules that must be followed, please feel free to contact our office for a free initial consultation.
