The divorce process can be one of the most difficult times in a person’s life. At Zamborsky & Zamborsky, we try to make this process less difficult. In Pennsylvania, there are two general types of divorce: fault based and non-fault based.
Fault based divorce allows for a person to get divorced from a spouse if that spouse has done something wrong. An example of fault would be adultery; if a spouse had sexual intercourse with another person who is not their spouse.
No-fault divorce allows a person to get divorced from a spouse after a certain amount of time. There are two types of no-fault divorce in Pennsylvania. The first type of no-fault divorce is a consensual divorce. Both parties agree they want to get a divorce. So long as all of the divorce related claims are settled, a divorce may be granted after 90 (ninety) days after service of the divorce complaint. The second type of no-fault divorce may occur if the marriage is irretrievably broken and the parties have lived separate and apart for 1 (one) year.
A divorce process can be exhausting at times. At Zamborsky & Zamborsky, we are here to help you get through this challenging time.
