Divorce Laws in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County

When your marriage has come to an end, you probably want to finalize your divorce as soon as possible so you can move forward with your life.

However, before you can go through with divorcing your spouse, you consider the Pennsylvania divorce laws that could affect your divorce proceedings. Read on to learn more about the laws surrounding divorce in PA so you can better prepare.

Paying or Obtaining Alimony

One of the most important aspects of PA divorces is the matter of alimony. Alimony is financial support provided when the lesser-earning spouse is unable to provide for themselves financially, and is not a guarantee in any divorce proceedings. 

However, if one spouse is unable to provide for themselves, an alimony order may be issued either temporarily or permanently. This depends on a number of factors, including the physical and mental health of both spouses, their income and assets, and job experience, to name a few. 

How Your Assets and Debts Are Divided

You also likely want to know how your debts and property are going to be divided. Is your spouse going to take half of everything if you choose to divorce? The answer is no, thanks to PA equitable distribution laws. Here, all marital property, assets, and debts are divided not evenly, but fairly.

Ultimately, you can choose to divide your property and assets as you see fit, but if you and your spouse are unable to work together, the judge will use equitable distribution laws to determine how to divide your marital property.
