Common Questions and Concerns in Divorce

When considering divorce, numerous questions may arise:

Do We Need an Attorney for an Amicable Divorce?

Even in amicable situations, legal complexities can arise. An attorney ensures proper procedure and document preparation, preventing future issues. While one attorney cannot represent both spouses, we can assist in drafting agreements and expediting the process.

How Long Does the Divorce Process Take in Pennsylvania?

The process requires a mandatory 90-day waiting period after serving the Divorce Complaint. The duration varies based on disagreements or property division complexities.

How are Assets Divided in a Pennsylvania Divorce?

Pennsylvania follows Equitable Distribution, meaning the court considers what is fair, not necessarily equal, when dividing marital property. Factors include the length of the marriage, earning capacities, custody of children, and more.

Do We Need to Go to Court if We Have a Divorce Agreement?

No, parties with an agreement do not need to appear in court for their Divorce Decree.
