Family Law

Experienced Representation in Divorce and Related Matters

Many legal matters arise when a marriage is to be dissolved and you need help to find your way to an agreeable settlement. As your legal representative, our family law attorneys have the experience and creativity to understand the difficulties that arise and the flexibility to help you discover new ways to cope during this stressful time.

At the Sweeney Law Offices, we work to find solutions to a wide range of divorce matters through negotiation,mediation, litigation and the collaborative law process. Our divorce lawyers will work to protect your rights and interests in a wide range of issues, including:

  • Equitable distribution of marital assets and debt including investments, retirement benefits and 401(k) accounts (generally known as property division)
  • Spousal support or alimony
  • Child custody and the rights of fathers, mothers, grandparents and stepparents to visitation
  • Child support
  • Domestic violence and protection from abuse (PFA) orders
  • Modification of orders of custody, visitation and support

In addition to divorce, we help clients throughout western Pennsylvania seeking "legal separation" or an annulment, when appropriate. We can assist in the drafting of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.

We also handle cases in which the truth about a child's paternity needs to be established in order to determine the appropriate support, custody and visitation. Likewise, we offer experienced guidance to step-parents, family members and others considering adoption.

Cost-Effective Solutions, Dedicated Advocacy

Our highly experienced attorneys offer affordable solutions to challenging divorce and family law matters. We are always willing to help clients explore alternative methods of dispute resolution which may enable them to avoid potentially costly and time-consuming litigation. We have the skill and experience to fight for our clients in traditional divorce litigation when necessary, and we frequently handle complex divorce disputes for professionals and business owners in high-asset property distribution matters.
