Can anyone get a No-Fault Divorce?

No. One party must be a resident of Pennsylvania for 6 months in order for us to handle your case. This process is best when both wife and husband will cooperate and sign forms.

 

What if my spouse will not sign divorce papers?

Both parties must sign based on the latest updated laws to do our lowest priced divorce. If your spouse will not sign, you may have some other options if you file a divorce in your local county where you live. You must be separated for more than 2 years in order to do a Pennsylvania Divorce without your spouse’s signature. If your spouse can be served and he/she does not respond, you may be able to get your divorce without signature. Even after 2 years, your spouse could contest the case. No divorce is automatic though and your spouse could always contest the case.

When is a No-Fault Divorce NOT appropriate?

In general, if there are property or economic issues that can NOT be resolved, a No-Fault Pennsylvania Divorce is NOT appropriate. A marital home or pension can often times complicate a divorce. You must contact an attorney to discuss these issues before deciding on a No-Fault Pennsylvania Divorce.

 

How long does a No-Fault Pennsylvania Divorce take?

Your separation length will help determine the divorce length. Pennsylvania No-Fault Divorces are filed as more than 2 year separation or less than 2 year separation cases. For greater than 2 year separation cases, the Pennsylvania Divorce generally takes between 2.5-3 months. If you do not have at least 2 years of separation, the case generally takes around 5 months.

 

Will I get a final divorce paper?

Yes. The plaintiff always receives a certified final divorce decree upon completion of the Pennsylvania Divorce. The defendant will receive a photocopy of the final divorce decree, but could pay a small extra fee to also receive a certified divorce decree. You should save your final divorce decree for future reference and it will be required if you get married again.

 

How do I start my case?

Please contact us by e-mail or telephone. We will need to gather some information from you and arrange for payment. Some important information that we will need includes Name and Address for both spouses, along with the marriage date and place and approximate separation date.

 

How much is your PA No-fault Divorce Fee?

Our no-fault divorce fee is $500 and includes all court fees! You may also come in to meet with us rather than starting the case online. Fees could vary if there are any economic issues that you need us to deal with or if both parties will not sign.

 

What if we have Property or Other Economic Issues?

We may be able to help you deal with more complex issues, but we would need to meet with you to discuss your specific case. Please call or e-mail us for an appointment. If appropriate for your situation we may be able to prepare agreements, negotiate on your behalf, or proceed with a contested divorce for you.

 

How do you differ from other online divorce services?

Your divorce is actually fully prepared by our attorneys, while some websites offer kits and require you to file documents yourself. We are your PA Divorce lawyer and we will make sure that the divorce is done properly. Our firm is a 2nd generation family business which Robert Reinherz started in 1980 and son, David Reinherz, joined in 1998. Our attorneys are easy to contact and will explain everything in a down-to-earth way. We want to make the process as pleasant as possible for you. Your divorce will be done as fast as possible and will not be held up for any reason within our control. Once all legal waiting periods expire, we will expedite your case.
