Family Law in Pennsylvania

Full-service family law firm in Butler

Whether anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of divorce, you need a knowledgeable, and dependable, assertive Pennsylvania attorney by your side when facing important family issues. The lawyers at Montgomery Crissman zealously advocate for your rights and provide protection for you and your family during all family law proceedings, including:

  • Divorce
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child and spousal support
  • Modification of support
  • Adoption
  • Alimony
  • Property rights
  • Mediation
  • Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
  • Estate and disability planning
  • Protection from abuse

Divorce and Property Rights

Through negotiation or litigation, our divorce law firm fights for your rights to get the best possible settlement or judgement- including your fair share of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Child Custody and Visitation

We advocate for your parental rights so that your children can be raised in a safe and healthy environment.

Child Support

Parents share the responsibility of raising their child. At Montgomery Crissman, our attorneys advocate for a fair division of financial support between the parents so that the child can have a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child Support Modification and Enforcement

Child support payments do not change unless the Court modifies the child support order.  If either you or the other parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, our attorneys can guide you through the proper legal procedures to increase or decrease the amount of support and to see that you collect the support to which you are entitled.


Adopting a child brings happiness to families — but a biological parent’s change of heart can turn the joyous occasion into a nightmare. We assist with the complex legal process of adoptions so you can feel secure whether the adoption is consented to or contested.


Divorce should not lead to financial crisis.  We help you obtain the spousal support or alimony you deserve, so you can support yourself during separation and after the marriage ends.


Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than trial.  We can help you obtain the best possible divorce settlement.

Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements

Love can blind you to the potential for financial loss if the marriage fails.  We expect the unexpected and draft agreements that protect your financial interests in the event of your separation or divorce.
