Experienced Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania Divorce & Custody Lawyer

The dissolution of a marriage involves crucial decisions about the welfare of your children and the equitable division of your assets. Attorney Harry M. Byrne Jr. considers all aspects of your divorce to reach the best possible solutions regarding:

Effective divorce law mediators

Mediation gives you and your spouse the opportunity to negotiate a divorce settlement in a structured setting through a trained facilitator. The mediation process fosters cooperation between partners and removes the unpredictability and uncertainty associated with litigation. Mediation often reduces the time and costs of divorce, and puts the decisions in your hands. We can help you obtain an equitable divorce settlement, fair child support agreement and healthy child custody arrangement.

  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of your children

Advantages of mediation in child custody cases

Children are best served when parents establish a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key points concerning their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve the stability and well-being of their children’s lives during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of mediation can relieve the stress of child custody conflicts and mediation puts important child-rearing decisions in the parents’ hands, rather than in the court’s power. We meticulously develop mediation strategies that carefully guide the negotiating process toward healthy resolution. 

In support of child custody litigation

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect your children’s best interests. When a parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations often fail. In some cases, a parent poses a danger to the children’s well-being, rendering litigation the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights. Through our methodical approach to litigation, parents can feel confident that their children are protected and their parental rights are secure.
