PLEASE BE ADVISED, ALL CUSTODY RELATED MATTERS ARE BEING HELD REMOTELY AT
THIS TIME. PLEASE UPDATE THE CUSTODY OFFICE WITH YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS.
The Blair County Custody Office is located on the third floor of the new addition of the Blair County Courthouse, 423 Allegheny Street Ste 327, Hollidaysburg, PA 16648. The Custody Office deals with the court custody process regarding the legal and physical custody of minor children between parents, grandparents, and third parties. The Custody Office is not involved with any issues of support.
Informational packets regarding the custody of children and the custody process are available at the Custody Office; however, the information and any instructions are general and may not be all a person needs to know to file for custody properly.
IT IS ALWAYS BEST TO BE REPRESENTED BY AN ATTORNEY IN A CUSTODY MATTER.
If you do not have an attorney, you may call the Lawyer Referral Service at (814) 693-3090. The Lawyer Referral Service has a list of attorneys who practice family law. You will be given several names from which you may choose an attorney to assist you in your filings and the custody process.
The Custody Office Staff cannot give legal advice; however, you may contact us for general information at (814) 693-3205.
