Pennsylvania has both “no-fault” and “fault” divorces. For a no-fault divorce, the parties must have been separated for at least one year before filing for divorce. However, if both parties consent to the divorce, they may file after only 90 days of separation. In cases of fault-based divorce, there must be proof of wrongdoing by one of the parties, such as adultery, cruel and barbarous treatment, or desertion. Divorce proceedings can be complex and emotionally taxing, which is why it is essential to have a skilled lawyer on your side.
Going through a divorce or dissolution of a marriage is never easy. There are many things at stake such as financial security, your emotional state, and your children. Even though a divorce is one of the most trying times of one’s life you do not have to face it alone. It makes sense to consult with a skilled, experienced, and compassionate divorce attorney.
Many times in a situation like divorce, emotions seem to reign supreme. Too often, these unchecked emotions result in unnecessary fighting, petty-mindedness, and stressful battles over custody matters or asset distribution.

We believe that, by providing our clients with the information and tools needed to understand the law as it relates to their case, we can help them make informed decisions about how they want their divorce to proceed. Our goal is to ultimately reach an agreement that works for you and your family.
Removing anxiety and stress from the divorce equation can bring both clarity and closure to a difficult episode in one’s life.

Child custody and visitation – Determine the best arrangements for your children, including visitation schedules and child custody agreements.
Child support – Ensure that your child is taken care of financially by setting up a child support agreement.
Equitable distribution – Divide assets and marital property between spouses in a fair and equitable manner.
Alimony – Determine if alimony is appropriate in your case, and if so, how much should be paid.
Protection from abuse – Seek protection for you and your family if you are a victim of domestic violence.
