Two Types of Divorce

There are two types of divorce under Pennsylvania law: fault and no-fault divorce.


In a fault-based divorce, one spouse needs to prove that there are fault-based grounds for divorce. There are six categories of marital misconduct that qualify as a fault divorce in Pennsylvania:

  1. Adultery
  2. Desertion
  3. Cruel and barbarous treatment
  4. Bigamy
  5. Imprisonment for a crime
  6. Indignities


In a no-fault divorce where both parties agree to the divorce, the divorce can be completed as soon as 90 days after the initial filing. It must assert that the marriage is irretrievably broken. If one party does not agree to the divorce, a no-fault divorce requires that they have been separated for at least 2 years.

Establishing Child Custody and Visitation Rights in the Child’s Best Interest

Many couples feel they simply cannot come to an agreement and that it would be better for the family court to determine a child custody arrangement. We have worked with psychological experts in a variety of cases to come to a resolution that is in the best interest of the children.

Child Support

We can help calculate child support obligations, and negotiate or litigate a fair amount.

Alimony & Spousal Support

Pennsylvania establishes three types of alimony/spousal support. We can assist with determining which type of support may be right for you.
