Same-Sex Child Custody
Child custody is a very emotional issue for many parents. I am lawyer Michael E. Eisenberg, and I understand that this may be a stressful time for you. The idea of your relationship with your child changing can be frightening, but I can guide you through the legal processes related to same-sex child custody, protecting your parental rights along the way.
Preserving The Parental Rights Of Same-Sex Parents
In Pennsylvania, the law presumes that if a child is born to a married couple, the spouses are legally his or her parents. This means that both parents, regardless of whether they are a same-sex couple, have rights to the child if they divorce.
Since I became an attorney in 1987, I have helped countless parents determine child custody arrangements and effective parenting plans. Although I focus on finding a resolution through mediation when possible, I am prepared to take custody matters to trial if necessary.
