Court orders establish stability for families after separation or divorce. However, as life evolves, you may want to modify the terms of these orders.

Below are circumstances where we can step in to pursue modifications:

  • Relocation, change in ability to care for the child, or military deployment.

Legal Support for Unmarried Separating Couples in Mantua

While Pennsylvania doesn’t recognize marriage for cohabitating couples, there are still legal considerations following a separation. In fact, unmarried couples don’t have the same automatic rights as married spouses.

If there are children involved, we will advocate for the protection of their best interests.

However, in certain circumstances, you may recover significant financial contributions made to the relationship or for opportunities given up to support your former partner. We will assess your situation and determine the best legal approach to pursue potential reimbursement.
