How a Divorce Is Handled Can Impact the People Involved for the Rest of Their Lives and You Need a Qualified Pittsburgh Divorce Attorney by Your Side

Divorce in Pennsylvania is not a cut-and-dry subject, and its implications for the parties – both legally and emotionally – make this area of law one of the most contested and emotional areas by a large margin. Divorce may be a no-fault divorce, meaning both parties agree that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” Or it may be pursued through one of several reasons for the dissolution of the marriage, such as one partner having an affair. Regardless of the grounds alleged, divorce actions take a toll on all involved. From the division of marital property to the grounds for divorce, these actions affect those involved in a serious way.

Equitable Distribution Requires an Experienced Pittsburgh Divorce Lawyer

One of the biggest issues to tackle in divorce is how the property and assets of the parties will be split up following the divorce. This is a process called equitable distribution and an experienced Pittsburgh Divorce Lawyer can be invaluable in this process. For example, a jointly owned house, car or bank account must be correctly apportioned between the divorcing parties. Additionally, retirement accounts, 401K’s and long-term savings instruments are also usually subject to equitable distribution rules. These are often high value assets and must be treated with care and attention. A good Pittsburgh Divorce Lawyer will be invaluable in this process.

Alimony and Spousal Support Are Two Big Divorce Issues That Call for the Presence of a Well-Versed Pittsburgh Divorce Lawyer

Depending on the earnings of each party involved, a spouse may be eligible for alimony, spousal support or other forms of monetary support during the divorce process and after. If someone goes through a divorce without a lawyer, they may miss the opportunity to capitalize on these forms of compensation. Also, we can accurately defend someone from a claim of alimony and spousal support if the law entitles that person to a strong and valid defense. A divorce can be simple, but it can also be complex at times. A qualified Pittsburgh Divorce Lawyer who works in Allegheny County, Greensburg, Westmoreland, Washington, Indiana, Butler, Beaver, Greene County, Jefferson, Fayette and Somerset can be invaluable to the process.
