Domestic Relations / Family Law

“Family Law.” “Custody.” “Support.” These words usually bring to mind unpleasant images; images that are tied to sad scenes of spouses fighting and children crying.

The Domestic Relations / Family Law Group at Willig, Williams, & Davidson is committed to helping our clients get through these trying times as comfortably as possible. No client is just a fee or just a file to us. We understand that we are dealing with your life and your family. These simple facts affect everything we do for you; from the initial consultation to the final settlement of your assets.

Our Pennsylvania attorneys provide quality, professional legal representation to thousands of union members, their families and dependents. They also regularly handle cases for private clients. Our individual clients and union members receive advice and consultation, document preparation, and representation in and out of court in all of the following areas:

  • Adoption (for both individuals and couples)
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support, spousal support & alimony
  • Civil union contracts and dissolutions
  • Co-habitation agreements
  • Divorce
  • Equitable Distribution of Marital Assets
  • Name changes (for adults and children)
  • Paternity
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Protection from Abuse
  • Same-sex marriage

The domestic relations / family law attorneys at Willig, Williams, & Davidson come from many different backgrounds, but are all committed to the same thing - providing clients the best possible representation during the worst of times. Our attorneys in PA are skilled negotiators and do everything in their power to resolve your situation in a fair and amicable way. We are in court every day. We know the courts - both the personnel and the procedures, and we use this knowledge to get the best possible results for our clients. We often deal with the hard cases - the abused spouse who needs a protection order or the grandparents who need an emergency custody order can count on our zealous representation. We also represent clients in non-contested matters and can facilitate the dissolution of a marriage as expeditiously as possible.

In addition, family law issues often overlap with other areas of the law, such as bankruptcy, criminal defense, real estate, and wills, trusts and estates. Our lawyers in Philadelphia are able to assist you in all of these areas.

Our attorneys are with you every step of the way - from consultation and negotiation, to preparing you for everything from entering into an agreement to a hearing in court. Every matter is important to us and our family law attorneys never lose sight of the fact that at the heart of every case are people at their most vulnerable.
