Pennsylvania’s Resident Requirements for Divorce
To file for divorce in Pennsylvania, one or both spouses must be a state resident for at least six months. Additionally, the divorce petition must be filed in the county where the couple lives or resided during their marriage.
What are the Two Types of Divorce?
There are two main types of divorce: contested and uncontested divorce.
- A contested divorce means a couple disagrees on at least one term of divorce (e.g., child custody, child support, property division, spousal support, etc.), while an uncontested divorce means both parties agree on all terms of the divorce.
- An uncontested divorce – also known as a “mutual consent divorce” – is a faster divorce process, typically lasting three to four months without requiring both parties to go to court. By contrast, a contested divorce can take years or so because the outcome can be determined through court litigation.
No matter what type of divorce you face, our legal team is prepared to help you file all the paperwork, meet all the deadlines, and help you obtain the best possible outcome. Let our firm help you get a fresh start in life!

He has also been appointed as the special discovery master for the Court of Common Pleas of Montgomery County.

How We Can Help
We encourage clients to resolve their divorce through negotiation — a cost-effective and collaborative approach. For child custody disputes, mediation is mandatory in Pennsylvania. While we try to avoid the contentiousness of trial, we prepare every case to be successful in court, if necessary.
Disputes over alimony, child support, grandparents' rights, and property division can quickly escalate. When reasonable negotiation fails, we will be aggressive advocates and fight for your rights in trial. We also help clients modify divorce agreements.
