Divorce Lawyer in Reading & Pottstown
Working with Dolan Law Office, LLC
Most people who enter into marriage never assume that it will end in divorce;
however, divorce rates in the United States have been slowly on the rise
since the 1970s. It is estimated that 40 - 50% of first marriages are
likely to end in divorce. If you have tried to resolve issues within your
marriage to no avail, you may benefit from considering divorce or separation.
At Dolan Law Office, LLC, we are proud to have years of experience helping
families overcome these difficult situations and we can ensure that our
clients' rights are protected throughout the divorce process. If you
are considering divorce, we encourage you to contact Dolan Law Office,
LLC as soon as possible.
Grounds for Divorce in Pennsylvania
Of course, no two divorces are ever the same, which is why at Dolan Law
Office, LLC, we never take a cookie-cutter approach to our clients'
cases. We can develop a personalized strategy that is unique to your particular
situation and we can help determine which course of action is best for
you. In some situations, a collaborative divorce may work for your case
- in others, an uncontested divorce or divorce through mediation may be
best. Pennsylvania recognizes two grounds for divorce, and depending on
which ground you file under, we can develop an individualized strategy
for your case.
In a no-fault divorce, both parties can mutually agree to separate if
the marriage has become irretrievably broken. In no-fault divorces, the
court can grant a complaint for divorce if the couple has agreed to live
separately for at least two years.
Grounds for a fault-based divorce include malicious desertion, adultery,
cruel and unusual treatment, entering into marriage while one spouse is
still married, imprisonment for more than two years, or one spouse making
married life nearly impossible to bear.
