Alimony may help a lesser-earning spouse post-divorce

Alimony is often one of the most complicated issues in a Pennsylvania couple's divorce. During the divorce proceedings, the court may order the higher-earning spouse to pay their lesser-earning spouse a set amount of money each month to give the lesser-earning spouse time to become financially self-sufficient after the divorce. The purpose of alimony is to limit the financial struggles of a lesser-earning spouse as they transition into single life.

We offer compassionate, professional representation for divorce

Divorce is often portrayed as an unfortunate phenomenon and a bad thing. Yet there is plenty of evidence that divorce can be a good thing in the lives of many divorced people. This should always be kept in mind when spouses think about the pluses and minuses of divorce.

Establish boundaries with an ex to protect your future happiness

The chance of divorce in a second marriage is even higher than the first, which makes the healing process essential for future happiness. Despite being legally divorced, many couples still interact with each other as they did when they were married, making it hard to shake off resentments, emotional patterns, and anger. If this pattern is not corrected after divorce, it will continue and often negatively impact any subsequent relationships you form with a new partner, your children, and stepchildren. So, what can you do to increase your chances of a successful second marriage? 

When it comes to your divorce don't hate, collaborate

The dissolution of marriage is a stressful process. Anyone who has been or is going through it would tell you this. It simply is the nature of divorce. There are alternatives to traditional divorce proceedings, though, that can make this daunting thing a little easier to handle. Collaborative law is an option for couples in Pennsylvania who wish to end their marriages. What is this and how can it be beneficial to you?

Getting a divorce? Watch your social media activities

Divorce has always been a complicated process, but in the age of social media, things are stickier than ever. Social media is used for a variety of purposes. People post business accomplishments, their child's milestones, vent about their political frustrations, brag about their vacations, show off their new toys, share fun recipes and silly cat videos and more. Some see their social media accounts as a safe haven, and may even feel more open about their lives online than they are in person. However, when it comes to people who are in the process of divorce, this can be a dangerous way to think, and in many cases, it can be costly in terms of dollars and reputation.
