Pennsylvania's No Fault Divorce

Attorney Jason HuskaIn PA, a no fault divorce can occur in two ways.

When both parties sign affidavits of consent, the divorce is deemed to be one of "mutual consent."

In cases where only one spouse files for divorce, if the parties have been living apart for at least two years, the court may also grant a no fault divorce.

Divorce in Pennsylvania can also be for "fault." A divorce for fault occurs when one party declares that they are the "innocent and injured" party.  In this case they are burdened to prove that misconduct on the part of their spouse has caused the marriage to fail.  Violence, bigamy, adultery, desertion, insanity, and criminal conviction are grounds for a "fault" divorce.

Child Custody and Child Support

Black woman with daughter and motherIn PA, the law regarding child custody and child support is complex.  The law covers issues such as the non-custodial parent's right to access a child's medical records.  Or what if a custodial parent plans to move out of the area and take the child with them? There is a distinction between physical custody and legal custody, as well as provisions for emergency custody if your child's life, health, or welfare is in danger.

At Ferguson Law Associates, we know every concern and possible situation that may arise.  Our experienced divorce attorneys will give you their undivided attention.  We not only listen to your fears and concerns, we have the experience to provide counsel, looking down the road to situations you may never have thought of.

In Pennsylvania, the courts evaluate the relationship between each parent and child to determine matters of custody and visitation. Neither the mother nor father is considered favored, nor is the custody decision ever considered final.  Even the child's preference is one of many factors taken into consideration by the court.
