No-Fault Divorce In Pennsylvania

Within the past year, Pennsylvania has changed the law regarding no-fault divorce. The ability to file for a no-fault divorce grants you the opportunity to go through a divorce with dignity and avoid a long, drawn-out messy process.

Equitable Distribution During A Pennsylvania Divorce

When imagining divorce, many people assume that the spouses split everything equally, 50/50. However, in Pennsylvania, this is not the case. Pennsylvania recognizes equitable distribution, which gives the courts the power to distribute the assets and property of a marriage as they see fit.

Divorce With Dignity

A divorce can be a trying time for you and your former spouse. It's already a sad and hurtful time, but it's even worse considering that during divorce hearings, information may come to light that is difficult to hear. However, it's important to remain mature, civil, and respectful. According to psychologist Susan Quilliam, "Dignity is our best friend in a crisis because it reminds us that, although we may be at the mercy of uncertain circumstances, we can at least be in control of ourselves." Consider these tips to help navigate through your divorce with dignity.

We Can Help With LGBT Custody & Divorce Issues

While America has made some mistakes in the past, the march of social progress-however much it may slow down at some points-will always continue to move forward. Zitomer Law is proud and honored to be a legal practice with a family law focus on every kind of family and legal union, including LGBT marriages. But this means we also understand that with something as relatively new to the legal scene as the recent recognition of LGBT unions, there may still be some uncertainty and confusion of the legal options when things go wrong.

A Pre-Nuptial Agreement Isn't Iron Clad

One of the things that many divorce lawyers will tell you is the importance of having a prenuptial agreement in place and signed by both partners. We'd love to believe that a marriage, once begun, really will last "till death do us part," but statistically, it's already a well-known fact that not every marriage comes to an end this way, and a significant number are resolved through a divorce.

Divorce & Adopted Children

For many children, a divorce often becomes a traumatic signpost of youth. However, for children who are adopted, especially if they weren't adopted as infants, this effect can be magnified, and it can become a much more difficult, formative experience, especially if there are disagreements about child custody that result in a legal battle.
