Parenting decisions are among the most challenging and sensitive matters related to divorce. At Levine & Susaneck, PA, we understand what you are going through. Donna P. Levine is a family law attorney with over 25 years' experience in helping parents establish a workable parenting plan.
We are attentive to your goals, responsive to your needs and provide skilled legal advocacy on your behalf throughout every stage of your custody and support proceedings.
The court bases child custody on what is in the best interest of the child. However, you may be able to have a significant say — through negotiation — in how child custody is determined. Whether you seek individual, shared or joint custody, you need a lawyer who will represent your interests in negotiating an agreement that is in your child's best interests. You can trust our experience to do what is right for you and your family.
If you cannot resolve child custody out of court, we are a trial law firm that can aggressively protect your legal rights and the well-being of your children in court.
If you are a divorcing parent, your child's well-being is your first priority. We will advocate on your children's behalf to reach a support agreement that meets their needs, both today and into the future.
While guidelines exist to help determine the appropriate amount of child support, deviations can occur under special circumstances. We have extensive experience handling legal matters that involve individuals with special needs. If your child has special needs, that must be considered when determining a proper child support arrangement. We will help you ensure these issues are addressed.
When income, location or other circumstances of one or both of the parents change, modifications of prior orders of child custody and support may become necessary. As a former Domestic Relations Commissioner General Master, attorney Levine used to hear cases involving modification and enforcement of parenting issues, giving her a clear understanding of what evidence needs to be presented to the court in order to achieve a favorable outcome on behalf of her clients.
