Indiana In the Morning

Catch up with us on June 1 as we visit the WCCS studios!

And ICYMI, Downtown Indiana member attorney Marshall Chriswell appeared on Indiana in the Morning as part of his regular segment Marshall Law. They walked through the new amendments to the child custody law in Pennsylvania, which will become effective on July 3, 2018. Introduced by our own Senator Don White, the law provides expanded custody rights for grandparents, as well as other relatives and caregivers. This could represent a major change to child custody cases, particularly where one or both parents are affected by drug addiction. Listen here .
