The number one questions we get is "how much time does it take until I'll be divorced?" Everybody wants a speedy divorce, but just how much time it will it take depends on which type of divorce you are qualified to get. There are two kinds, called a 3301(d) divorce and a 3301(c) divorce. A 3301(d) divorce is called a "separation divorce". A 3301(c) is called a "mutual consent" divorce. If you or your spouse is a resident of Pennsylvania and are both willing,cooperative, and available to be divorced, we can get you your divorce fast.
If you have been separated 1 year or more,then you qualify to get a 3301(d) separation divorce. The law in Pennsylvania requires a 20 day waiting period for this type of divorce, but we use a special waiver so you can get divorced much faster.
