We Can Explain Your Options
Each type of divorce carries its own set of options, requirements and deadlines. You need a lawyer who can explain these factors.
We can assist you with any type of divorce, including:
- Contested and uncontested — An uncontested divorce is when both parties agree on resolution of the issues raised in the divorce. This is a much faster option than if one party contests some issues, which may create a long court battle.
- With or without consent — Without consent means when one party does not agree to the divorce, whereas with consent means both parties agree to proceed.
Many of our clients are going through a “gray” divorce. A gray divorce is one in which the parties are over age 50. These cases typically have more assets to divide and special considerations and planning need to be addressed since the parties are closer to retirement age. We can help you with this planning.
What Qualifies As Grounds For Divorce?
Pennsylvania is considered a “no-fault” state. This means that typically the parties are said to have irreconcilable differences when going through a “no-fault” divorce or have been separated for the statutory period of time. In contrast, a “fault” divorce has a specific cause or causes associated with it, such as abandonment, abuse, or adultery.
