Our Family Lawyers Have You Covered! 

The following is a partial summation of the family-law services we provide.  Our goal is to give you strength, encouragement, and guaranteed results!

Financial Support  

Alimony – Though your life circumstances have placed you on a very different journey, we’ll make sure your lifestyle remains as unaltered, as possible!  During a divorce proceeding, one spouse may be ordered to pay alimony which would hinge on the circumstances of the newly-ended marriage.


Generally, alimony is awarded to cover food, shelter, clothing, living expenses and, possibly, other costs.  In Pennsylvania, alimony is not guaranteed.  In the end, a judge will decide whether to award alimony.  We will be with you to ensure the best legal counsel for your alimony claim or defense.  


Spousal Support – When spouses separate, the party who earns less may be entitled to receive spousal support from the higher earner during the pending divorce.  If you are a dependent spouse, you want your needs to be met during this time.  Our family lawyers will fight for your rights to help ensure you receive everything you are entitled to!


On the other hand, if you are the party required to pay spousal support, your family lawyer from LaMonaca Law would make sure your support obligation is fair and aligns with Pennsylvania law.     


Child Support – Implementation of child support or modifications with, existing, child support arrangements are, often, necessary.  Even if parents can come to an agreement, a family lawyer is needed to handle the mediation and paperwork.


Whether you are paying child support or receiving child support, you want a family lawyer who will make sure you are not overpaying nor being underpaid!  Is your ex-spouse moving out of state or has he or she already done so and you feel your child support may become compromised?  Is your estranged partner not making support payments?  Are you involved in a case of establishing paternity?  Call LaMonaca Law, now!

International Issues 

Life can get complicated, especially when two people have become estranged and one person is a citizen of another country.  Whether your situation involves divorce, custody, or support issues inside or outside of the US, our family lawyers can, fully, assist!


Our family lawyers can 1) enforce a foreign divorce decree or settlement in Pennsylvania 2) handle child-custody issues when one parent resides outside the US or 3) obtain a child-support order when one parent resides outside the US.  


Our perseverance and expertise have generated success stories we could never forget.  Our family lawyers have been responsible for reuniting clients with their children who had been abducted.  We have handled many international abduction cases involving multiple countries.  Every international case is handled professionally, aggressively, thoroughly, and expeditiously.  

Family Mediation 

Mediation has to do with voluntarily ‘meeting in the middle’ with family-related issues of all types.  Here, both sides agree that discussing unresolved conflict regarding child custody, child support, alimony, annulments, and other marriage/divorce issues are best served with family lawyers.  Our family lawyers help to facilitate open, effective communication through calm mediation procedures.  


Our legal team helps clients stay out of court, and we can enlist different mediators, if needed.  It becomes a team approach where both sides can reach desired outcomes. 


Often, two unmarried people choose to live together, but eventually choose to separate.  Legally, this can become complicated, especially, if children are involved.  When no cohabitation agreements exist, things can get messy, very quickly. 


On the other hand, child support or the division of assets after a break-up can proceed more smoothly if legal stipulations are, already, in place.  One of our family lawyers can draw up a cohabitation agreement which would become legal in the eyes of the state of Pennsylvania.  Our family lawyers will make sure you are protected if the unanticipated were to occur!  

Marriage and Divorce 

Our family lawyers handle prenuptial, postnuptial, and separation agreements.  We can draft marital agreements that would be in place if divorce or separation were to occur.


Our family lawyers, also, craft agreements for same-sex partnerships and other situations where non-traditional families form a plan to reside together.  You can have peace-of-mind knowing you have a safeguard in place as you move into the future.


LaMonaca Law is very well versed in divorce law.  Our family lawyers provide expertise regarding Out-of-Court Agreements, Marital Property Distribution, Military Divorce, No-Fault Divorce, Post-Divorce Modification, Annulment, and Uncontested Divorce cases. 


Once a divorce has become finalized, one spouse may be ordered to pay alimony.  Our family lawyers ensure that those who are entitled to receive alimony get every penny they deserve and we ensure that those who will pay do not overpay!

Family Arbitration 

Unresolved conflicts within families are nothing new.  Every family has them, but it is how they are handled that can make the difference between revolt and resolution.  Our family lawyers will offer remedies and interventions that can help you and your family avoid taking personal issues to court.  


Our goal is to facilitate peaceful remedies and sound resolutions for all family members who may be affected – spouses, parents, grand-parents, and legal guardians.

Name Changes 

LaMonaca Law can prepare and submit all the documents if a name change is desired.  Whether a name change is for you or for your child, we’ll do the work so you can spend more time on other priorities in your life.


Our family lawyers address other family-related issues, including:


  • Domestic violence & protection from abuse
  • Adoptions
  • Child abuse and neglect
  • Emergency custody and custodial time
