Divorce Law in Pennsylvania

When filing for divorce, the spouses agree to end their legal and financial relationship to one another. In Pennsylvania, there are two classifications of divorce: fault and no-fault divorces. In the case of fault divorces, one of the spouses needs to prove that there is some fault-based grounds for divorce. These grounds can include adultery, desertion, insanity, or unusually cruel treatment. No-fault divorces are much more common, with both spouses agreeing that the marriage is irretrievably broken. No-fault divorces can be resolved as early as 90-days after filing. In Pennsylvania, if spouses cannot agree to terms, the court takes control over the matter. A judge will decide how the assets are divided and which parent retains custody. The experienced attorneys at Mashinski Law are here to keep the decision-making in your hands.
