If you are thinking about getting a divorce, first consider divorce mediation. A neutral and qualified mediator can help you and your spouse divide the property and parenting responsibilities peacefully and respectfully.
A mediated divorce is an amicable, simple and efficient process. Pennsylvania has a Mutual Consent No-Fault Divorce option which allows couples to obtain a divorce regardless of marital fault. The benefit to choosing this type of divorce is that you are able to move forward after a 90 day waiting period, without the need of one spouse to show misconduct through the court system. Time and money are precious resources, especially during a divorce, and the mediated pathway is an efficient and less expensive method of obtaining a divorce.
You have probably heard from your family and friends that the divorce process is devastating. This does not have to be the case for your family! Couples using mediation tend to end the marriage in a better position both financially and emotionally than those that take their battle into the court room. Once you and your spouse decide that it is time for a divorce, and if you both agree, consider scheduling a consultation with a mediator before you dive into the litigation process!
