Child Custody/Visitation Lawyer in Lackawanna, Monroe, and Wayne County

The legal standard in Pennsylvania, as in most jurisdictions, is the “best interest of the child.” Of course, if that were clear and easy to ascertain, there would be no disputes. But the best interests of children are often clouded by the emotions of a separation, divorce or new relationship, by mental health and substance abuse problems, by abuse or by ordinary differences of opinion, culture and religion.

Child custody disputes are the most heart wrenching of all family law matters.

We have experience in handling routine child custody disputes as well as more complex issues, such as:

  • Relocation to another county, state or country
  • Special Immigration Juvenile Status Cases
  • Legal custody disputes regarding religious upbringing, medical or educational choices;
  • The ability of people other than biological parents, (i.e., grandparents, stepparents, partners, unrelated caregivers, etc.) to pursue some form of custody of a child; and
  • Emergency circumstances involving issues such as mental health concerns, substance abuse and child abuse.

Client Testimonial

“When I had a serious custody case and wasn’t sure who to call or what to do, I called the Mulligan Law Firm. Attorney Mulligan was very accommodating and realized that I was distraught over the thought of losing my children. Mr. Mulligan rearranged his schedule to meet with me and filed the legal documents necessary to protect my interests the next day. Attorney Mulligan’s approach to my case was measured and professional. I strongly recommend the Mulligan Law Firm if you are facing a serious family law matter in Northeastern Pennsylvania.”
