What are the requirements to divorce in Pennsylvania?

Sometimes, marriages just don't work out. It's not necessarily one person or the other's fault, sometimes people just grow apart. Pennsylvania law provides a remedy for those in that situation, it's called divorce. If you're looking to move on with your life here in Cranberry Township, then you'll want to apprise yourself of the requirements that you must meet to do so.

Why settle a divorce rather than going to trial?

Many New Jersey couples may find themselves trapped in a conflict when they decide to divorce. Before they decided to end the marriage, they may have found themselves arguing frequently and disagreeing about almost everything. As a result, it may seem like it is almost impossible to negotiate a settlement and there is no choice but to go to trial. However, many people may prefer to settle their divorce in order to save time and money, even if they have a conflicted relationship with their estranged spouse.

Mediation may allow for a more peaceful divorce

When your marriage is breaking up, it's easy to focus on your personal hurt and grief. Divorce can result from extreme disappointment or betrayal that can make it difficult to remain positive. A couple who then goes through the tumult and tension of a litigated divorce may have additional strain on their relationship, which can be devastating if you must then co-parent.

How conflict with a spouse can hurt the divorce process

The divorce process can bring up many emotions for people in Pittsburgh, including anger and frustration. This could cause a person to lash out at a spouse. However, this can be harmful and might even affect how property is divided or child custody decisions are made.
