Shemtob Law, P.C., in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, concentrates exclusively in divorce and family law. We advise and represent clients in matters ranging from equitable distribution, prenuptial agreements, custody, and child and spousal support.

Divorce

  • Divorce: Our goal is to resolve divorce cases with a collaborative approach; however, we are prepared to litigate if it is in our client's best interest. We work with clients to determine the best strategy and discuss their options.
  • Spousal Support / Alimony / APL: We give clients a good idea of what they can expect to owe or to receive in spousal support, alimony or alimony pendente lite, which is a temporary form of alimony provided while the divorce process is ongoing.
  • Equitable Distribution / Marital Property Distribution: In Pennsylvania, family court will review 17 factors to determine a division of assets that is fair and equitable. We work diligently with our clients, as well as experts such as business valuators and forensic accountants to determine the full extent of the marital estate.

High Asset/High Income Divorce

  • Business Valuation: Proper valuation of a family business, closely-held business, or other small business interest is critical to reaching a fair property settlement agreement.
  • Divorce and Retirement Benefits: In addition to real estate investments (marital home, rental properties, vacation homes, etc.), an individual's retirement accounts may be some of the most sought after property in a divorce. We utilize experts to calculate projected retirement benefits and assess how these valuable assets should be allocated.
  • Prenuptial Agreements: Every prenuptial agreement we draft is specific, new and individual. Our goal is to protect our clients before marriage in the event of a separation, divorce or death. Prenuptial agreements in Pennsylvania are valid and careful consideration must be taken when counseling a client and drafting the agreement.

Child Custody and Related Issues

  • Child Custody, Visitation, and Grandparents' Rights: When determining issues of legal and physical custody, the courts primary consideration is the best interests of the children. We focus on you and your children to obtain a custody schedule which is best. We also represent the rights of grandparents' and third parties in child custody disputes.
  • Child Support: Statutory guidelines in Pennsylvania determine child support based on the income levels of both parents. However, high income cases which exceed these statutory guidelines often necessitate the assistance of an experienced litigator and negotiator. We pride ourselves on our ability to help clients either receive or pay a fair amount of child support.
  • Post Divorce Issues: We handle issues arising after divorce, including modifications to child support due to a substantial change in circumstances or modifications to custody based on the best interests of the child.
