Making the decision to end a marriage can be a highly emotional experience. From a strictly personal perspective, divorce usually represents the end of a dream for a happy future together, but from the perspective of the state it is simply another lawsuit. At Reinherz Law, we understand that a divorce action is a different kind of legal proceeding that requires compassion, attention, understanding and negotiation. Though the state provides grounds for both No Fault and Fault divorces, in most cases today’s divorces are No Fault. This means either that both parties mutually consent to the divorce or that one party wants the divorce and the parties have been living separate and apart for at least two years (or that two years have gone by since the divorce filing). If you are in need of a no fault divorce lawyer in Philadelphia, the attorneys at Reinherz Law can provide you with legal counsel and representation. Call us today for more information on a no fault divorce.

Divorces that are filed in Philadelphia fall under Pennsylvania state law, and the state makes a distinction between No Fault and Fault divorce proceedings. When filing for a divorce on the grounds of Fault, a spouse needs to show that they have been “innocent and injured” during the course of the marriage (and therefore not at fault) as well as that there has been a breakdown of the marriage that is the fault of the other spouse.  Examples of grounds in a Fault divorce include conviction of a crime, insanity, bigamy, desertion or adultery. Fault is largely irrelevant in today’s divorce cases, as the Fault grounds can be applied in No Fault divorces in order to argue against spousal support or alimony. Fault has no application regarding equitable distribution of property. By contrast, a No Fault divorce does not require anything beyond mutual consent or a determination by the court that the marriage is irretrievably broken. The latter is established by the two-year period of either separation or time since the divorce filing.

Though many people believe that divorce can be accomplished without the benefit of an attorney, there are many reasons to have a no fault divorce lawyer by your side, providing you with legal counsel, representation, or both. An experienced attorney will make sure that you are aware of both your legal rights and your obligations under the law, thus making sure that you have completed all required documentation legally and fairly. They can help you to negotiate agreements in any areas that prove challenging, making sure that your legal rights are protected and that what you agree to is in your best interest. Finally, a divorce attorney can act on your behalf if you find that your spouse acts in a way that is detrimental to you, or if they file an action against you.
