Whether you are going through a divorce, or custody litigation, or facing another legal issue close to home, Hughes, Nicholls & O'Hara will seek solutions to your legal problems that protect your interests and loved ones. I am well-versed in matters of Pennsylvania family law. Parents and divorcing spouses in  Northeastern Pennsylvania enlist my help to overcome some of life’s most difficult challenges, and I take pride in delivering quality representation.

Dedicated Pennsylvania attorney advocates for the best interests of children

To ensure a secure future for your children after a divorce, Hughes, Nicholls & O'Hara provides caring legal counsel and advocacy. I can help you with matters including:

  • Child support — I will seek an arrangement in which you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy environment.
  • Child custody — I advocate for parenting time to be divided in a way that grants a child stability and safety. I assert client’s parental rights to make decisions about how children are raised.
  • Adoption — I assist clients who seek to add children to their families through adoption and step-children adoptions. I handle the legalities of this sometimes frustrating process of terminating parental rights of the absent parent.

In all of these matters, I provide knowledgeable counsel at each step to protect your children’s welfare and your rights as a parent.

Focused counselor handles divorce, spousal support, alimony pendente lite, alimony and property division matters

If you have reached an agreement with your divorcing spouse, I can prepare the Agreement to be approved by the Court.  If issues can not be resolved amicably, I will advocate for your rights in court. I provide comprehensive support for:

  • Divorce — I will guide you through the divorce process so that your rights are protected and you can move forward with confidence.
  • Spousal support, alimony pendente lite and alimony — So that divorce doesn’t unnecessarily disadvantage one party, I will help you seek the best possible award of spousal support, alimony pendente lite and alimony whether you must pay the award or receive it.
  • Property division — I will advocate for a fair allocation of your marital estate and liabilities.
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements — I draft and review comprehensive prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that protect your interests and can alleviate some of the stress and uncertainty should you ever divorce.
