Criminal Defense & Family Law Attorney in Clarion, PA

Michael B. Bogush

Attorney at Law

After graduating from Dickinson School of Law at Pennsylvania State University in 2000, I spent my time practicing various areas of law before deciding to strike out on my own. I did so because I felt it would give me the opportunity to serve my clients better while giving them the time and attention they deserve. The thing I enjoy most in my career is the ability to help others in a way that matters. I have always related well with others, and I can utilize that natural skill when working alongside my clients. No matter what they are going through, they know they can come to me with their concerns and I'll do everything I can to help.

Fighting for child custody

Whether you are starting the divorce process and need an attorney to help you file for custody or make custody arrangements, or you are fighting the terms of a previous agreement, I have the expertise to help you. I will help you understand the way the family court system works and walk you through the process of obtaining legal and/or physical custody of your child. To gain an understanding of how these proceedings work, contact me and I will answer your questions. 

The Pennsylvania family court uses the "Best Interest Of The Child" standard, which relies solely on the needs of the child and not the parents' wishes. If you want to have the best chance at a successful outcome, if you want to give your child's needs the highest priority, and if you are serious about your parental rights then yes - even if your former partner is not actively pursuing custody. With over 20 years of legal experience, I can help you fight for the best outcome for both you and your child.
