You or your spouse must meet the Pennsylvania residency requirements for the Court of Common Pleas to have jurisdiction of your case. The requirements before filing your Complaint for Divorce (the document that initiates your divorce) are as follows:
Either spouse must be a resident of the state of Pennsylvania for at least six months prior to filing. A proceeding for divorce or annulment may be brought in the county where the defendant resides or if the defendant resides outside of this Commonwealth, where the plaintiff resides.
In order to use this service, you and your spouse must agree (or eventually agree) on getting the divorce. Your spouse's participation is minimal, being he or she will only have to sign a few documents and return them to you for filing with the court.
The most common "uncontested" grounds for divorce in Pennsylvania are:
1. The court may grant a divorce where it is alleged that the marriage is irretrievably broken and 90 days have elapsed from the date of commencement of an action under this part and an affidavit has been filed by each of the parties evidencing that each of the parties consents to the divorce.
2. The court may grant a divorce where a complaint has been filed alleging that the marriage is irretrievably broken and an affidavit has been filed alleging that the parties have lived separate and apart for a period of at least two years and that the marriage is irretrievably broken.
All of your documents will be current according to Pennsylvania statutes and will address over 100 issues. A few of these issues are; assets, property, current debts, future debts, insurances, retirement and pension accounts, spousal support/alimony, real estate, small businesses, tax filings, name changes, and professional fees. If you have children, our service will also address physical and legal custody arrangements, visitation schedules, child support, and health and medical coverage.
