Someone To Stand By You Through Your Divorce

Going through a divorce is one of the most stressful and complicated times of a person’s life. When you are trying to navigate your way through your divorce on your own, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and lost in the process. Instead of facing things on your own, you can rely on the guidance of a skilled and compassionate family law team.

At The Blackwell Law Firm, our Pennsylvania attorneys are committed to helping families through their divorce. We know that a divorce impacts the children as much as the spouses, which is why we pursue the ideal outcome for our clients and their kids. We know that you may have a lot of questions about your divorce, and we are here to answer them.

How Can You Protect Your Assets In A Divorce?

One of the biggest worries in any divorce is what you will be able to keep after your divorce finalizes. In a Pennsylvania divorce, a court will divide only the assets acquired during the marriage (known as marital assets). This means that any heirlooms, real estate or anything else that you owned before your marriage is safe from division.

When it comes to dividing marital property, the court will use a process known as “equitable distribution.” This process splits the assets in a way the court deems fair, instead of a 50/50 split. To ensure you keep your fair share, we can help you gather the necessary documentation and present your strongest case in court.

Are There Options In How To Resolve A Divorce?

There are two primary methods of resolving a divorce, either through contestation or collaboration. When a divorce is contested, it goes to court, each side will present their case, and a judge will make a final decision for all parties. In an uncontested divorce, both parties will work together to negotiate for a divorce agreement that both sides can be satisfied with. Whether you want to resolve your divorce through negotiation or litigation, we can help protect you and your children.
