As family law attorneys that have served Erie residents for many years, we know how important family is to Pennsylvania parents. Children are everything and nothing is more important than protecting their physical, mental and emotional well-being. When divorce enters the picture, many parents wonder how such a life event will affect their kids and if their children can emerge from the experience without any undue suffering.
Many of our attorneys are also parents and we have the same concerns about our children that you have about yours. This, combined with our divorce experience, has given us some insight into protecting the best interests of children through any family law proceeding. For example, we know that child custody and child support disputes are often the most stressful for parents who both feel responsible for the welfare of their children. Unfortunately, this stress can work against concerned parents by trickling down to the kids and making them feel anxious as well.
Of course, we are not suggesting you should not to worry while you are going through your divorce or another family issue. We are simply saying that taking the time to find the right lawyer can help you navigate your legal issues successfully. In turn, this can result in less stress for you and a greater sense of security for your children. An added benefit of engaging the right attorney is having access to the resources you need to facilitate healing for everyone in your family before, during and after your legal matters are resolved.
