In today’s world, there are many different types of partnerships: the traditional marriage, civil unions and domestic partnerships. When these relationships come to an end, strong legal guidance is required. The lawyers of Law Office of Michael N. Vaporis have earned a stellar reputation with their ability to define the nature of your relationship, without judgment, and choose which steps to take to dissolve your union.

Amicable divorce requirements

In order to file for a divorce in the state of Pennsylvania, you or your spouse must be a resident of the state for at least six months. Either spouse can file and must simply state in the divorce papers that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” If both spouses agree in writing, or have been separated for two years or more, your Indiana County divorce attorneys can arrange for your divorce simply and free of hostility.

Contested divorces

If you have been separated for less than two years or don’t agree on the divorce, we can still file on one of the following grounds:

  • Adultery
  • Bigamy
  • Cruel and inhuman treatment
  • Imprisonment for years two or more
  • Personal indignities
  • Confinement in a mental institution

As experienced divorce lawyers in Indiana County, we stay at your side representing you throughout all of the divorce proceedings including negotiation meetings and trial.

 

Negotiation or trial

If you and your spouse can agree on the issues that need to be addressed — such as property, debt division and support — we can finalize your divorce without a trial. If you can’t agree on these issues, the court schedules a hearing. If the court thinks there’s any chance at all for reconciliation, it may order a 90-day cooling off period, or order you and your spouse to complete a counseling program. If these attempts at preserving your marriage don’t succeed, the court then grants you a divorce.
