Uncontested divorce in Pennsylvania

Thinking about ending a marriage in PA, couples have two options:

  • Contested divorce. Sometimes, spouses are just unable to make terms and have to involve a third party to help them come to an agreement or simply get what they want out of a marriage dissolution. In this case, a divorce is called contested. This type of legal breakup requires hiring a lawyer so that they can prepare all the necessary forms for you and represent you in court. Therefore, such marriage dissolution can become incredibly expensive as couples engaging in a contested divorce usually pay from $9,500 to $11,500 each to end their marriage. Besides, it takes a lot of time for such cases to be finalized.
  • Uncontested divorce. This option is great for those couples who have already agreed on property division, alimony, or child custody and support and just need their marriage to be over. The biggest advantage of this type of dissolution is that spouses do not need to hire an attorney if they are already in agreement. This way, the couple can cut their expenses and save a lot of time because uncontested divorce is usually finalized as soon as the waiting period in the state is over.

However, even if you and your ex choose the uncontested option, you still have to deal with the great amount of paperwork. If you google all these documents, you will see that there are dozens of them for each specific case. That is why we strongly recommend you not to fill out the docs you find on the Web because you may miss some important papers, choose the outdated forms, or make some mistakes. What we can recommend though is using OnlineDivorcer!

We are the company that has helped thousands of couples to end their marriage quickly and smoothly. Working with us, you will get a full packet of up-to-date divorce forms, which will be filled out with your personal information, and a guarantee that they will be approved by the court.

Getting a divorce in Pennsylvania with a child

Having decided to end their marriage, the couple has to decide on such important aspects as child custody and support.

  • Parents are free to draft their own agreement regarding child custody and support which should be later approved by the court.
  • In Pennsylvania, the court is usually inclined to grant the parents shared legal custody. However, the physical one is determined based on the child’s best interests.
  • Sharing physical custody, parents have to create a custody agreement establishing which parent will have physical custody of the child for each day and for a given time. They have to consider each other’s work schedules, houses and school location, etc. They also have to create a separate schedule for holidays, family events, and vacations.
  • Child support in the state of Pennsylvania is paid by a non-custodial parent to a custodial one and the sum paid should be calculated using the PA Support Guidelines.
