Law Firm OverviewAt the Law Office of Marta S. Laynas, I have helped my clients define goals for their separations, divorces, custody situations and other domestic matters and develop strategies to obtain results as peacefully as possible. This includes considering mediation as a possibility if the circumstances are appropriate. I serve families and individuals in Chester County, Montgomery County and Delaware County.
Domestic relationships are extremely personal. You need a family lawyer who listens to your situation and helps you reach a resolution you can live with in a timely, cost-effective manner. My office is a comfortable and confidential environment, and I listen to your case to learn the specifics of your unique situation and to determine your goals. Knowing your story allows me to use my experience and resources to your advantage in order to achieve the best results possible.
I began my career as a prosecutor in 1981, fighting to keep Chester County safe for six years before changing gears to help clients with their family law issues. My experience of exclusively handling family law cases since 1987, allows me to devote my full range of creative problem-solving and honed litigation skills to your advantage.
I take my clients' legal issues to heart and handle each case personally, so you retain a direct, responsive relationship with me — not with a paralegal or associate. I work toward an amicable resolution to your family law matter. I work hard to obtain a result that gets everyone what they deserve. As a mother, I understand the significant role family plays in your life. As a skilled divorce lawyer in West Chester, Pennsylvania, I understand the law as well as how to position your case, in mediation and before the court, to achieve the best possible results.

Areas of Law Description
At the Law Office of Marta S. Laynas, my family law practice addresses all domestic matters, including, but not limited to:
- Family Law
Any change in your family can be stressful and emotional. When you face a divorce, separation, custody change or adoption, my West Chester family law firm, Marta S. Laynas, Attorney at Law, can help. I represent both men and women in family law issues and present effective solutions designed to protect your best interests.
Marital dissolution is rarely easy. Sometimes, however, divorcing couples can agree on the specifics of their separation and create a Marital Separation Agreement that addresses all terms of the divorce. This document is then filed with the court as part of the official divorce decree. While I strive to assist clients through divorce and help them resolve their issues outside of court rather than litigate in order to save anxiety, time and cost, I understand it is not possible in every case. I am prepared to fight aggressively for my clients in cases where settlement or resolution outside the courtroom is impossible.
- Child custody and support
Typically the most volatile aspect of a divorce, the terms of child custody and child support should be handled by an experienced family law lawyer, familiar with Pennsylvania and local laws. Since 1987, I have helped parents and grandparents resolve this stressful issue with compassionate guidance and innovative solutions to determine primary, partial and shared custody as well as child support arrangements and enforcement.
When facing a divorce, many people can't imagine sitting down with their spouse to make compromises and reach agreements on domestic matters. But sometimes it truly is the best way to resolve your problems — mediation can create a foundation for a healthy, stable relationship in the future, which is critical when children are involved. In all, mediation has the potential to save you the time of going through a trial, the expense of separate attorney fees and the stress of facing your spouse in contentious litigation.
