Providing Compassionate Child Custody Counsel for Same-Sex Couples

A dispute in child custody can be very stressful and emotional. That is why you want to make sure that your lawyer is knowledgeable in same-sex couple child custody matters and will provide the thorough legal counsel you are looking for.

At Jacobson, Julius & Harshberger, our attorneys are well-versed in the complexities of Pennsylvania law applicable to same-sex couples’ child custody issues. We aim to use our decades of experience to guide you through this difficult situation and find a solution that makes the best interests of your children the main priority.

Helping Clients With Difficult Same-Sex Child Custody Issues

Same-sex couples’ child custody disputes usually invoke issues of standing for the child’s nonbiological parent, meaning that the nonbiological parent has no basis on which to seek custody or even visitation rights. The same situation applies to stepparents seeking custody of children after divorce or other separation from their spouse, the child’s biological parent, or grandparents seeking custody or visitation rights of their grandchildren after the death of their biological child.

To avoid these issues altogether, it is wise to adopt your nonbiological child prior to dissolution of your partnership or marriage. However, perhaps this was not possible, or you simply did not think it would ever be an issue. In this situation, our skilled, assertive lawyers will demonstrate that you have become the child’s psychological parent, and that a separation would not ultimately be in the best interests of your child.
