No fault doesn't mean no reason when it comes to divorce

You've probably heard of (or perhaps even known someone who has experienced) long, drawn out courtroom battles marked by emotional outbursts, contentious debates and mudslinging between spouses as they fight their way through divorce proceedings. In fact, this description of divorce is so common that you might have felt a bit out of the loop when you decided to sever marital ties for reasons that had nothing to do with fault. In Pennsylvania, no fault divorces are recognized by the court.

Creative custody may be the answer to your stability worries

When you decided to pursue divorce, you may have immediately begun worrying about your children's future. Perhaps stories of high risk behavior in children of divorce increased your anxiety level. On the other hand, you may know a few people whose children have seemingly fared quite well since their parents split; of course, you're hoping your family has similar results to the latter as opposed to the former.

Shared parenting bucks the trend of sole custody

It may seem obvious to say, but most divorces involve conflict. However, you may find comfort in hearing that the conflict, while intense in the throes of divorce, typically fades during the years immediately afterward. Unfortunately, the child custody rulings made in the heat of conflict may remain in place throughout the child's life.

How to blend families while preventing parenting plan problems

If you're one of many Pennsylvania residents who divorced in recent years, you may deserve a pat on the back for overcoming the challenges you likely faced in the process. Especially, if you're a parent, chances are you and your kids have had to make several adjustments in lifestyle that proved difficult. As time went on, you probably felt like life was getting back on track. The kids were doing well and you met someone new whom you plan to marry.

Fault or no-fault: That is the question.

Whether you and your spouse married less than a year ago, or your wedding day is now decades past, you'd likely agree with other Pennsylvania spouses who admit marriage can be quite challenging at times. If you and your spouse have children together, certain marital and/or family problems may seem exacerbated when taking their best interests into account. Many married couples determine their unions simply can't last a lifetime. For some, the question then becomes whether to file for a fault or no-fault divorce.
