Divorce

When your divorce is uncontested, meaning that both you and your spouse agree to divorce, you can obtain a no-fault consent divorce in Pennsylvania in a quick as 90 days.  However, all of the property issues must be resolved at the time the divorce decree is entered.

 

When your divorce is contested, meaning you or your spouse does not consent to the entry of the decree in divorce, you may still obtain a no fault divorce after a one-year separation, providing all of the property issues have been resolved at the time the divorce decree is entered.

 

 

Pennsylvania is also a Fault state. A Fault Divorce may include:

  • Adultery

  • Bigamy

  • Desertion

  • Cruel and inhuman treatment endangering the life or health of the spouse

  • Imprisonment for two or more years

  • Indignities

  • Confinement in a mental institution

 

A fault divorce is extremely rare, though.  The reason being is that it affords few if any benefits to the innocent spouse and can be a very expensive avenue to pursue.  The Attorneys at Liebmann Family Law bring over 100 years of combined legal experience to help you through your divorce in Bucks County.
