I have successfully completed my term as President of the Chester County Bar Association.  It was hard work, but I have a lot of great memories.  On January 11th there was a dinner in my honor at the Desmond in Great Valley, PA.  I was humbled by the fact that 200+ people attended.     Even though my term has ended, I intend to continue serving my profession and my community.  On January 1st, I began my term as President of the Chester County Bar Foundation.  It is an offshoot of the Bar Association, and its mission is to provide legal education and promote access to the legal system for those who cannot afford it.

In Pennsylvania there are some unique terms that you should be familiar with, if you are involved in a custody case. 

The word "custody" actually encompasses two different concepts. There is "legal custody" and there is "physical custody". They are distinct from one another, but they each deserve attention.

The term Legal Custody is the right to make major decisions that effect the best interest of the child. Such decisions include medical, educational and religious decisions. Generally, legal custody is jointly held by the parents, and that is called "shared legal custody". However, under circumstances where one parent has shown himself/herself to be adverse to the best interest of the child or where one of the parents has abandoned the child, the court might grant legal custody to only one party.  That is know as "sole legal custody."

Physical Custody is the time that the child spends with one of the parents. "Primary Physical Custody" is the time spent with the parent who has the majority of the time. "Partial Physical Custody" is the time spent with the parent that has less than the majority of the time. In most states, Partial Physical Custody is commonly referred to as Visitation.

If one of the parents has lost all rights to physical custody, then the other parent has "Sole Physical Custody".

Under some circumstances, one of the parents may only be allowed to have physical custody with a monitor present.  The monitor may be an adult or an agency designated by the Court or by agreement of the parties.

Comcast can take its case to the U.S. Supreme Court.  In the case, Behrend v. Comcast, Judge Padova of the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania denied the Plaintiff's motion to enforce a settlement proposal as if it were a binding contract.  As a result, Comcast's Petition for Certiorari before the Supreme Court may now move forward.  The Supreme Court can decide whether or not it wants to hear the case.
