Divorce cases

Pennsylvania Family Law cases involving divorce:

  • Danz v. Danz - The PA Superior Court reiterates that Rule 1920.2(b) requires a trial court to ensure the record establishes venue is proper-either by residence, written agreement, or tacit agreement through participation- before directing entrance of a divorce decree. The Court overturns a decree entered when the parties did not live in the county where the divorce complaint was filed and the wife did not actively participate in any of the proceedings.

The cases listed are for informational purposes only and may have been amended or overturned by subsequently decided court cases.
