Pennsylvania Divorce

If you are going through a separation or divorce in Pennsylvania, this page will provide you with the information you need.


You can review the relevant divorce laws to understand how the various issues would be decided and how you can best protect your interests. It is advisable to have a skilled family lawyer handle your case, which you will be able to locate from this page.

If you are thinking about handling your divorce without a lawyer, there are also options to purchase separation forms or online divorce services. Whether you plan to use a lawyer or not, I would suggest checking in the divorce preparation section, where you can find out more information about receiving the book "What Every Woman in PA Should Know about Divorce". This book provides a lot of solid information to help you get through your divorce.

To help you deal with your situation, you can also access information about the domestic abuse resources in the state and find various divorce support meetings in your surrounding area.
