Experienced Divorce Representation

Divorcing spouses often have a number of concerns regarding grounds for divorce, spousal support, custody, division of assets, debts, finances, etc. Depending on the circumstances, answers can vary from case to case. In divorce law, no-fault and at-fault are the two most common types of divorce. No-fault is more prevalent, and typically involves a 90-day waiting period and consent from both parties to file for divorce. Wrongdoing is the underlying factor in at-fault cases, which typically involve marital misconduct on the part of the defendant. Our qualified divorce attorneys are experienced with both at-fault and no-fault cases, and will provide the knowledgeable counsel you require. Pennsylvania has joined a growing number of states recognizing same sex marriage. We have qualified tax attorneys who can assist with some of the special tax circumstances arising with the change in the law.
