What is involved in a Pennsylvania divorce?
The state of Pennsylvania allows couples to divorce based on a variety of fault grounds, however Pennsylvania is a no-fault state. Couples can mutually consent to a divorce, or, after a waiting period, one party can seek a divorce for any reason when they believe the marriage is irretrievably broken. Once we file your divorce case, we provide skilled legal representation to help you settle or litigate the issues of:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Division of assets
We are dedicated to protecting your rights in all aspects of your Pennsylvania divorce case including alimony and other spousal support awards.
Advocating for your rights in child custody cases
Child custody cases can arise when a marriage ends or when parents never marry. In all cases, the court will act with the best interest of the children in mind. When possible, we help you work with the other parent to craft a custody and visitation plan that works for everyone. When no solution can be reached through voluntary discussion, we work with a hearing officer to achieve an optimal result for you and your children. Because circumstances change over time, we help clients modify custody or visitation orders to reflect changing realities.
Helping parents achieve solutions to child support disputes
In Pennsylvania, both parents are required to contribute to a child’s upbringing and care. Cheryl McCallin strives to make sure child support awards are fair to you and your children. We help parents enforce child support orders when the other party refuses to pay. Our firm also assists in the order modification process when changing circumstances cause a need for an altered support order.
Easing the emotional burden of divorce through prenuptial agreements
People planning a wedding rarely want to think about a possible divorce, but it is easier for two people to work together when they are in love than when they are fighting. That’s why we recommend all couples plan the division of their assets and the resolution of other issues through a prenuptial agreement. We help you create an agreement that protects you and helps avoid litigation.
