How to Begin a Blue Bell, PA Divorce Action
In Pennsylvania, the legal divorce process begins when one spouse files a “Divorce Complaint.” It is advisable to have an experienced divorce lawyer draft the Divorce Complaint on your behalf. For a divorce in Blue Bell, PA, the Divorce Complaint must be filed with the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas in Norristown.
If the parties are in agreement about property and debt division as well as child custody and support matters, the divorce can be finalized without a trial. If the parties cannot come to an agreement, the court will set a time for the hearing. If, during the hearing, the court determines that there is a reasonable prospect of reconciliation, the court will continue the matter for a “cooling-off” period of at least 90 days. The husband and wife are required to attend counseling during this period. If the husband and wife have not reconciled at the end of the cooling-off period and the court determines that the marriage is irretrievably broken, the court will then grant the divorce.
After the Divorce Complaint has been filed, either husband or wife can request temporary assistance from the court in the form of temporary custody and child support orders and orders to determine who pays community debts on a temporary basis.
