Divorce Without Litigation
Ending a marriage is emotional and complicated. But it doesn’t have to be a legal battle. At Lawyers With Heart, we are firm believers in peaceful resolution of these difficult conflicts. We are a group of independent lawyers who share the same vision about divorce and family law. We keep clients out of court and help them find solutions that allow them to move forward.
Equitable Distribution Of The Marital Estate
Pennsylvania law calls for an equitable distribution of property and debts. Each spouse is entitled to approximately half of the wealth they acquired together, even if one party was the primary breadwinner. We help clients find middle ground and creative trade-offs for a fair and practical division of assets. Collaborative divorce is a unique approach to negotiation in which all parties sign an agreement not to litigate. Divorce mediation also avoids litigation with the help of a neutral facilitator. Whether you have a modest estate or complex assets, we can guide you to solutions. Our experienced attorneys can address the marital residence and other real estate, businesses or professional practices; retirement savings and investments; vehicles; and valuables. We have experience with the unique considerations of “gray divorce” (over the age of 50) as well.
Coming To Agreement On Alimony
Alimony may apply when one spouse has a high income. A court would consider factors such as the length of the marriage, incomes, employable skills, career sacrifices and the age and health of each spouse. Our lawyers can gauge if alimony (spousal support) would likely be awarded in your divorce. If so, we can negotiate a reasonable amount and duration rather than leaving it up to a judge.
