If conflicts concerning your family have reached the point where legal action is necessary, Harry M. Byrne Jr. can help. Attorney Byrne has served families in Bala Cynwyd for more than 30 years. We provide legal services in a wide spectrum of areas:

-Child support modification
-Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
-Prenuptial agreements

We assist families with all aspects of international and domestic adoptions. We handle the legalities of your adoption, so you can concentrate on your new family.

Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. We will help you establish an equitable amount of spousal support.

Child custody and visitation
Our divorce attorneys will protect your parental rights to raise your children in a fit and supportive home.

Child support
An attorney can ensure you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy home.

Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or the non-custodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly.

Through mediation or litigation, our divorce law firm can help you gain equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
We are skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Pennsylvania to protect your parental rights from the interference of government authorities.

Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than trial. Our firm can help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement.

Prenuptial agreements
Our firm expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect both spouses' interests. A prenuptial agreement can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
