Looking Out For Clients Seeking Child Support Or Spousal Support

When legal issues affect children, it is critical to resolve matters efficiently and effectively — without extensive fighting that can have negative effects on children’s well-being. That is why, at the Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, law offices of Shay, Santee, Kelhart & Deschler LLC, we do not hesitate to fight hard for families at every step of the way.

Our law firm helps parents with a wide range of child custody issues:

  • Determination of paternity: Legal rights and responsibilities given to fathers, like visitation rights and child support obligations, are often dependant on the adjudication of paternity. We can help both fathers and mothers with these paternity issues.
  • Child custody determinations as part of divorce proceedings: When couples are going through a divorce, a determination of legal and physical child custody is often one of the issues that must be resolved. At Shay, Santee, Kelhart & Deschler LLC, we can help our clients protect the best interests of their children.
  • Child custody and visitation modifications: Children grow older, jobs change and needs become different. When circumstances alter, it is often possible to ask the court to modify existing child custody orders. Lawyers at our firm can guide you through the process.

In Pennsylvania, domestic relations courts handle matters of child custody and child support. These family law issues are often determined by custody masters. We are familiar with the courts and the professionals who work in them, so we can guide you through the process and help you make the best decisions about your legal rights as a parent.

Securing Spousal Support

We help our clients with issues related to temporary forms of spousal support such as alimony pendente lite and separate maintenance. We also help with issues related to alimony after divorce. Several factors determine whether a spouse is entitled to support or alimony. We can guide our clients through these factors, helping them anticipate what to expect and take actions that achieve the best possible results.
