Understanding How Child Support Is Handled In Pennsylvania

Divorce is an emotionally difficult time. In addition to your feelings about the end of your relationship, you’re concerned about the well-being of your children and about your finances.

Obtaining a custody agreement that meets your needs or a favorable spousal support agreement is easier when you have an experienced divorce attorney like Bruce G. Sandmeyer, Esq.. Our founding attorney has more than 25 years of experience and is proud to help families in Erie, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding area.

How May We Help You Today?

Child custody and support payments are often hotly contested issues in a divorce — even in divorces that are otherwise amicable. Attorney Sandmeyer has the experience necessary to effectively represent you in disputes about:

  • Alimony, also called spousal support
  • Child support
  • Child custody, also called visitation
  • Modification of existing agreements
  • Relocation
  • Military-related divorce

When your future is at stake, you want a knowledgeable advocate on your side. Our firm has an excellent reputation — many of our clients come to us as referrals from other attorneys or from satisfied former clients. This is the result of our commitment to serving you well: We offer personal attention, tailored solutions and clear communication throughout your case.

We’re On Your Side

At the law firm of Law Offices of Bruce G. Sandmeyer, Esq., we understand that you want to maximize the time you will be able to spend with your child. While Pennsylvania courts tend to award joint legal custody, there is still ample room to negotiate parenting time or visitation rights. We’ll fight hard to help you obtain an agreement that works, or to modify an agreement when circumstances have changed significantly.

Similarly, while child support is regulated by the state and enforced by the county, alimony is never required. Whether you are seeking spousal support payments from your former spouse, or believe that your ex’s request for alimony is unfair, we have the legal knowledge and experience to advocate aggressively on your behalf. When a settlement cannot be arranged, Bruce G. Sandmeyer, Esq., is an experienced litigator who isn’t afraid of custody or support trials.
