Is it necessary to go to court or attend hearings?

Posted By Attorney Jim Cairns || 21-Jun-2012

In the state of Pennsylvania, when you and your spouse are in agreement for divorce this is called an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce is sometimes also referred to as a "simple" divorce or a "no-fault" divorce. You do not have to go to court or even attend hearings to obtain an uncontested divorce . Although you do not have to attend court there is a residency requirement. You or your spouse must live in Pennsylvania at least six months prior to filing for divorce. You do not both have to be a resident of Pennsylvania, only one of you. This is how we are able to obtain a divorce for our clients when one party has moved away or is in the military. We can help process your divorce even quicker if you have been legally separated for two or more years.

Not having to spend time and money on going to court is one of the many ways we are able to make your uncontested divorce more affordable. We gladly pass the saving on to you. Divorces handled by traditional law firms can easily cost thousands of dollars. Not having to appear in court also means that you don't have waste money on traveling, gas or parking costs. Furthermore, we save you time. You don't have to worry about taking time off of work or school. We understand how valuable your time is, and since we are an online divorce law firm it means that we are always here when it's convenient for you.

At Cairns Law Offices we help people from across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with their simple, no-fault, uncontested divorces. We use technology to make your uncontested divorce fast, easy and affordable.
