Allegheny County, PA Family Law Attorneys
Family law is an umbrella covering legal issues around marriage, divorce, and children. Simply, it’s the term the legal profession uses to describe laws that affect families. These matters can be emotional, and each case is unique with its own set of circumstances. Many law firms that practice all areas of law use a “cookie-cutter” approach to family law. You need a law firm that approaches your sensitive issues with tailored solutions that keep only your best interests in mind.
Not every family law matter has to go through a drawn-out courtroom trial. Our Allegheny County, PA attorneys at DeRiso, DeRiso, Suher and Jeffries can work with you to decide if alternative methods like mediation or arbitration are better options. Call us today for more information.
What is Family Law
If a legal issue has to do with your family, it probably falls under family law. As we said earlier, it encompasses a wide variety of issues. Some family issues can be solved without legal counsel. However, some are so life-changing and important, they require paperwork, official signatures, and court orders.
It’s important to note that even though things like domestic violence or child abuse are also crimes, they fall under family law as well. Our firm can assist you with the following family law matters, plus more:
- Divorce and dissolution of marriage
- Division of property and assets
- Divorce agreement modifications
- Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
- Child custody
- Visitation rights
- Child support
- Alimony/spousal support
- Domestic violence
- Enforcement of orders, including protective orders
