Pennsylvania Family Law Distinctions

Unlike other states, Pennsylvania is both a fault-based and no-fault based divorce state. Pennsylvania allows for no-fault divorces based on an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage for example, where both parties consent to divorce or where the parties have lived separate and apart for a year or more. Additionally, Pennsylvania allows for fault-based divorces in situations such as one spouse has been sentenced to imprisonment for a term of two or more years. Our state also has specific guidelines for determining spousal support and alimony payments.

For child custody cases in Pennsylvania, the courts follow the principle of making determinations based on the best interests of the child. Factors like each parent’s living situation, whether or not a parent has a history of criminal charges and or a history of drug and alcohol abuse, and the parent’s relationship with the child and more are carefully considered.

With decades of experience practicing family law in Pennsylvania, our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of the latest state laws and court procedures. We can ensure your rights are fully protected according to the latest Pennsylvania statutes and legal precedents.
