Divorce Lawyer in Reading & Pottstown

Working with Dolan Ray Law, 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 Ray Law, LLC, we are proud to have over 50 years of combined 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 Ray Law, LLC as soon as possible.

Grounds for Divorce in Pennsylvania

Of course, no two divorces are ever the same, which is why at Dolan Ray Law, 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.

  • No-Fault Divorce - 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.
  • Fault-Based Divorce - 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.
