Family Law Attorneys

Family Matters: Progressive Solutions, Informed Decisions, Sustainable Agreements

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Kathleen D. Schneider bring knowledge, skills and breadth of experience to bear on the legal issues that impact your family. Your family matters, so whether you are going through a divorce, planning to get married or adopting a child, or you are a same-sex couple planning for a future together, you will be treated as the individual you are. Our lawyers take the time to listen to you and design a path forward with your goals foremost in mind.

We are known as much for the effective use of our talents to achieve negotiated settlements as for our skills in litigation. Our attorneys seek to find progressive solutions, help you make informed decisions and build sustainable agreements in family law issues, including:

Divorce: We can help you understand your rights and explore your options with regard to divorce, child custody, child and spousal support. Our strong financial background is exceptionally valuable in cases of high net worth divorce and complex property division.

Collaborative law: The collaborative divorce process allows divorcing couples to author their own agreements with the benefit of legal counsel and without the threat of a courtroom battle.

LGBT issues: We routinely field complex legal questions for same-sex couples in matters of family law, tax issues, and estate planning. Because Pennsylvania does not currently recognize same-sex marriage, we are able to help you plan for your family's future using other legal means.

Adoption: Adopting a child can be one of the most fulfilling and satisfying experiences in your life. We are here to guide you through the legal hurdles toward making that dream a reality.

Designing Transitions

Ultimately, and when possible, we strive to resolve legal matters in a "win-win" fashion. Designing transitions like these takes exceptional and talented family law counsel. Our lawyers strive to shepherd clients through the turmoil of divorce, the uncertainty of adoption and the complex web of legal considerations for LGBT families.
