Protecting a Father’s Right to Emergency Custody of Children

Skilled at handling emergency relief motions for divorcing fathers in South-central PA including Cumberland County, Dauphin County and Perry County

Tensions can run high when a family has been through a divorce. Situations that might once have been worked out amicably may quickly turn into battlegrounds between former spouses, especially when children are involved. When urgent situations arise in Harrisburg, Carlisle or New Bloomfield, PA, emergency custody of children might be necessary. The Guy’s Attorney has more than 20 years of experience responding promptly to such matters. If your visitation is disrupted or you have serious concerns about the physical safety of your kids, I can help. Fast.

Taking your petition before a judge the right way

Courts don’t enjoy receiving emergency petitions for special relief. And you do not want to stand before a judge who is displeased by your circumstances. It is very important to be represented by someone who understands which situations truly warrant emergency relief. The Guy’s Attorney does. I promptly evaluate your situation and efficiently move forward with a petition for temporary custody or modified visitation in such cases as:

  • Abandonment of a child
  • Protection from harassment and domestic violence
  • Allowing or disallowing minor children to be taken or moved to another state or country
  • A custodial parent charged with a violent crime

If your situation is intolerable, contacting an experienced Harrisburg emergency custody relief attorney is critical. The Guy’s Attorney stands ready to put your petition in motion without delay.

Pursuing emergency relief to financial support matters

Emergency relief is not limited to custody issues. Child support and spousal support can be enforced by means of emergency relief petitions as well. But the situation must be sufficiently dire to warrant such steps.

The Guy’s Attorney is well-versed in all aspects of support modifications and enforcement and helps you pursue or vigorously defend yourself against emergency relief actions that could result in legal responses including court summons, wage garnishment and other sudden financial adjustments. I value negotiation as a starting point but stand ready, at all times, to litigate when necessary to protect your rights and your family’s best interests.
