Advocating For Children During And After Divorce

Child custody is often the most stressful aspect of a divorce. And when the divorce is contentious, kids can easily be caught in the middle of a situation they have very little control over.

Pennsylvania courts require that child custody decisions must be made in the best interests of children. In most cases, that means keeping both parents involved in their kids' lives.

At Chan & Associates, we strongly believe in advocating for children, both in the strategies we pursue and in our desired outcomes. That's why we strive for amicable negotiations whenever possible. We are skilled in and prepared to pursue litigation if necessary, but a negotiated custody agreement is almost always preferable.

If you are going through a divorce or custody dispute and care deeply about the well-being of your children, you need a lawyer who shares your concerns. You need the attorneys at Chan & Associates.
