An Emergency Custody Petition was filed against our client alleging that she was neglecting her children
because she works full-time and attends school. Because of the work of our child custody attorneys,
the Petition was denied without testimony even being taken. The petitioner was attempting to disrupt
the established custody arrangement and this would not have beneficial for the children. Further, by
filing an Emergency Custody Petition, the petitioner was trying to circumvent the proper procedures
outlined by the Berks County custody court. The proper procedure would have been to file a Petition
for Modification of Custody at which point the parties would have been scheduled for a conciliation
conference. Our family law attorneys will help you fight for custody of your children. Contact us today.
