A Local Greensburg Divorce Attorney You Can Trust

Deciding to divorce is never easy. You may be anxious about many areas, including:

  • Spousal support — What do support payments mean to my future plans?
  • Alimony — Am I entitled to it?
  • Child custody and child support — No subject is more sensitive or in need of experienced legal advice than child and custody support.
  • Division of property — What happens to our house, our cars, our property? Pennsylvania is an equitable distribution state when it comes to dividing marital assets and debts — call us to find out what that means to you.
  • Trial — Will my divorce go to trial, with property division, child custody and spousal support at stake?
  • Stress — Will my children suffer emotional scars? How will family and friends on both sides be affected?
  • Debt — How will debt from credit cards or mortgages be handled in a divorce?
  • Abuse — How can the protection from abuse (PFA) statute be used to protect me and my family?

You can see a better life ahead for yourself, but getting there may be one of the most challenging journeys of your life.

Divorce And Marital Assets

In Pennsylvania, the process of dividing marital assets and debts in a divorce is governed by a legal concept called equitable distribution. Unless both parties agree on a property division settlement, the court will step in and order a settlement that a judge believes is fair.

Fair Does Not Always Mean Equal

Whether you have decided to negotiate a property division settlement or need the help of the courts to come to an equitable distribution, the representation of an experienced Pennsylvania divorce lawyer is important to protect your rights with regard to:

  • 401(k) funds and other retirement accounts and benefits
  • Military and veteran's benefits
  • Real estate
  • Business interests
  • All marital assets, debts and property

After a divorce, it will be just as important to revise your will, get a new power of attorney and attend to many legal details you may not be considering at the moment. That is why we make every effort to be thorough and dedicated to your case in a way that not only resolves today's issues, but prepares you for the future as well.

Military Divorce

When a party involved in a divorce is serving his or her country, the requirements of military service can add their own special difficulties.

The Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act (SSCRA) provides protections for active duty military personnel, including reservists and members of the National Guard, who are involved in civil litigation like a divorce or child custody dispute.
