Comprehensive Divorce Representation

If you are contemplating a divorce, of if your spouse has asked for a divorce, it is critical to consult with a knowledgeable divorce attorney as soon as possible to learn how Pennsylvania divorce laws may impact you. Obtaining a divorce decree is a matter of meeting required waiting periods and is generally unrelated to the behavior of either spouse during the marriage. However, the no-fault divorce process does not address other issues related to the marriage such as asset and debt distribution, support, alimony and custody.

The Paths Through Divorce
