If you’re considering getting a divorce in Pennsylvania, you first need to focus on protecting yourself and your property. While it’s true that the court will attempt to be equitable in most cases, you can take steps to make sure you aren’t left without what you deserve out of your marriage.
With divorces and family issues, it’s important to move quickly to prevent a build-up of costs and wasted time. It’s important that you’re able to move on quickly, so you can put this difficult time in your life behind you. Whether you’re struggling with alimony or spousal support, want to change your visitation rights or need to get out of a violent situation at home, the goal is always to keep you safe and to move as quickly as safe through the legal process of divorce.
Divorces can be complex; if you have children, who will be the primary custodian? Will you have a shared parenting plan?
If you have a high-asset marriage, how will you divide your assets so it’s fair? Is there a prenuptial agreement to consider, or do you have a separation agreement that can show how you want to split your assets? These are all important questions to consider, and you should always prepare to protect yourself legally if you want to fight for what’s yours.
