Family law is one of the most emotionally charged areas of law— especially when children or important assets are involved.

For decades, men and women in Eastern Pennsylvania have turned to Douglas I Zeider and his team to skillfully, compassionately and effectively represent them in a host of family law matters. They have substantial experience providing cost-effective resolutions and obtaining results for clients who are contemplating or enduring a divorce, a child custody battle or are dealing with child support issues among many others.

Clients include physicians, business owners, entrepreneurs, consultants, clergy, teachers and police officers, fellow lawyers, homemakers, seniors and retirees.

Our practice includes just about every area of domestic law including:

  • Divorce and post-divorce issues,
  • Civil unions and domestic partnerships,
  • Domestic abuse and restraining orders,
  • Property settlement issues related to divorce or dissolution,
  • Child and spousal support,
  • Child custody and parenting time,
  • Adoption and legal guardianships,
  • DYFS (Division of Youth & Family Services),
  • Paternity issues, and
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

We know this is an extremely stressful time in our clients’ lives. Our reputation is that of lawyers who listen to our clients while strongly advocating for their rights and the results they wish to achieve.

When their objectives require us to go to court, we rely on our substantial experience in litigating matters involving divorce, custody and parenting time, and even annulment.  We make every effort to assist in out of court settlements as well. Our lawyers are known and respected among family court judges and domestic masters (who are attorneys appointed by the court to handle family law cases)— all of which inure to our clients’ benefits.
