Experienced Pennsylvania Divorce Lawyers

Divorce and separation can be emotionally challenging and legally complex processes. Our Team at Wenger law are seasoned legal providers  here to provide the knowledge, support, and legal expertise you need to navigate these life-changing events.

Understanding Divorce and Separation


Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage. In Pennsylvania, divorces can be categorized as either “fault-based” or “no-fault” divorces.

  • Fault-Based Divorce: In this type of divorce, one party alleges that the other has committed a specific marital misconduct, such as adultery, abandonment, or cruel treatment.
  • No-Fault Divorce: This is the most common type of divorce, where the parties agree that the marriage is irretrievably broken or have lived separately for at least one year.

A divorce addresses various critical matters, including property division, alimony, child custody, and child support.


Separation in Pennsylvania refers to the legal status of spouses living apart without divorcing. During separation, spouses can still address issues like property division, child custody, and support.
