Alimony & Spousal Support


no fault divorceThe process for obtaining a no-fault divorce in Pennsylvania just got shorter. Law makers have reduced the waiting period to start dividing assets and deciding alimony from two years after separation to one. Family law attorney’s lauded the change as a significant step toward easing the burden on litigations and preventing parties from strategically dragging out cases. A spokesman for Gov. Tom Wolf said he intends to sign the HB 380 but does not yet have a timeline. The law would take effect 60 days after receiving Wolf’s approval. It cleared the senate in 43-2 vote on September 26th.
