Divorce Peacefully

A peaceful divorce is possible! In Pennsylvania, spouses may choose divorce mediation to:

  1. calmly discuss and decide divorce terms,
  2. divorce without setting foot in court,
  3. keep costs of divorce as low as possible.

In my office, about 9 in 10 divorcing couples who try divorce mediation promptly reach agreement on divorce terms that otherwise would be decided by a court:

  • marital property distribution
  • spousal support
  • alimony
  • child support
  • child custody

During divorce mediation sessions, I provide both spouses with:

  • legal information about Pennsylvania divorce,
  • tax information related to divorce,
  • financial information to consider in a divorce,
  • information for divorcing moms and dads.

This helps husbands and wives make informed decisions for themselves and their family. Spouses are the decision-makers in divorce mediation—with assistance from their mediator.

Then, after all important divorce terms have been decided:

  • I draft Pennsylvania legal documents, to make divorce mediation terms legally binding.
  • I assist with filing a no-fault divorce, when both spouses are ready to get a Pennsylvania divorce decree.

Because a mediation divorce can be handled by one attorney, the cost of a mediation divorce in Pennsylvania is thousands of dollars less than each spouse hiring their own lawyer to fight in court.

Compare divorce mediation to cost of the average Pennsylvania divorce.
