Media Child Custody Lawyers

Nothing matters more than your children. Child custody issues are of such importance that a trusted advisor and  experienced custody lawyer are vital.  Media custody lawyer, Scott Bonebrake, handles all child custody matters for Noel and Bonebrake. As a Media custody lawyer who has been licensed to practice law since 1995, Scott has handled hundreds of custody cases and numerous conferences and custody trials in Delaware County and the rest of the five county area.


Child custody matters in Media and the rest of PA are determined based upon the “best interest of the child” standard. Under Pennsylvania’s child custody law that was enacted in January, 2011, the Court must weigh the following factors when determining what is in the “best interest of the children” in deciding custody and visitation:


  • Which party is most likely to encourage and permit frequent and continuing contact between the child and another party;
  • The present and past abuse committed by a party or member of the party’s household, whether there is a continued risk of harm to the child or an abused party, and which party can better provide adequate physical safeguards and supervision of the child;
  • The parental duties performed by each party on behalf of each child;
  • The need for stability and continuity in the child’s education, family life and community life;
  • The availability of extended family;
  • A child’s sibling relationship(s);
  • The well reasoned preference of the child, based on the child’s maturity and judgment;
  • The attempts of a parent to turn the child against the other parent, except in cases of domestic violence where reasonable safety measures are necessary to protect the child from harm;
  • Which party is more likely to maintain a loving, stable, consistent and nurturing relationship with the child, adequate for the child’s emotional needs;
  • Which party is more likely to attend to the daily physical, emotional, developmental, educational and special needs of the child;
  • The proximity of the residences of the parties;
  • Each party’s availability to care for the child or the ability to make appropriate child care arrangements;
  • The level of conflict between the parties and the willingness and ability of the parties to cooperate with one another. The party’s effort to protect a child from abuse by another party is not evidence of unwillingness or inability to cooperate with that party;
  • The history of drug or alcohol abuse of a party or member of a party’s household;
  • The mental and/or physical condition of a party or member of a party’s household;
  • Any other relevant factor.

Media Custody Lawyer Scott Bonebrake also handles cases involving grandparents' rights to their grandchildren. In cases where a grandparent asserts a claim for custody of a child, the custody statute calls for the following, additional factors to be considered:

  • The amount of personal contact between the child and the party prior to the filing of the action;
  • Whether the award interferes with any parent-child relationship;
  • Whether the award is in the best interest of the child.
