Uncontested Divorce in Pennsylvania
In an uncontested divorce, spouses generally agree on issues such as property division, alimony and child support. If there is disagreement on any of these items, then they must be settled through negotiation or litigation.
In Pennsylvania, spouses may obtain an uncontested divorce on two no-fault grounds:
- Mutual consent: Both spouses agree to the divorce and 90 days have elapsed since the commencement and service of the divorce action.
- Two-year separation: When one spouse does not consent to the divorce, but the couple has lived separate and apart for at least two years.
Flat Fee Billing for Uncontested Divorces
Depending on your circumstances, we may be able to offer you a flat fee for your uncontested divorce. Flat fee billing allows you to know upfront the total cost of your attorney’s fees. At your initial consultation, we can determine whether or not you qualify for this billing arrangement.
