The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania upholds specific requirements when you wish to pursue a divorce. In all cases, one or both of the married persons must have lived in Pennsylvania for the past six months.
Additional requirements vary with the type of divorce.
The court will approve your divorce when your spouse has inflicted certain injuries, including:
The court will approve your divorce if your spouse has spent 18 months or longer in a mental institution due to a serious mental disorder or insanity. Additionally, there must be no reasonable expectation that the institutionalization period will end within 18 months after the divorce proceedings begin.
In the case of a mutual consent divorce, you must submit an initial complaint and undergo a 90-day wait period. After the 90-day period, you can each provide a sworn statement confirming that the marriage is broken beyond repair.
The court will assume mutual consent if your spouse is convicted of a personal crime against you.
The court will grant a divorce if you can prove that an irreparably damaging incident occurred that caused you and your spouse to live apart for a year or longer. If the defending spouse denies this claim, a hearing will be conducted to determine whether the marriage is irretrievably broken.
