Divorce in Pennsylvania is a matter of procedure. One party files and if the other party agrees, it is possible to end the marriage after three months. If the other party does not agree, then the marriage cannot be ended until two years have passed.
Splitting the property and determining whether alimony is appropriate is another matter entirely. The parties must trade information, obtain appraisals of real estate and pensions, and then examine the value of the estate in light of the length of the marriage, sacrifice of career and other factors listed in Pennsylvania’s Divorce Code.
