You can get a quick and affordable divorce without a lawyer or ever going to court.

Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions for uncontested, simple divorce and SimpleDivorce Filer.

AM I REQUIRED TO HAVE A MARITAL SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT?

No. It is not required in the state of PA. If you do not have any marital property, joint debt or children together under 18, you probably don't need one. However, if you do, we recommend documenting decisions about property division, retirement/pension assets, debt division, alimony, temporary alimony, spousal support, child custody and child support in a marital settlement agreeement, or MSA. Without one, if your spouse does not follow through with a verbal agreement, there is no recourse to enforce your terms. Most importantly, once the divorce is final, you cannot go back and negotiate terms.You have waived all rights to court-ordered equitable distribution or property rights when there is no MSA. The only exception is child support and custody, which can be amended at any time.

 

CAN WE USE SIMPLEDIVORCE FILER IF WE WANT LEGAL GUIDANCE BEFORE WE FILE?

Most likely.  Our attorneys are available for a 30-40 minute phone consultation, at a reduced rate of $175, paid in advance, in which both spouses are required to participate.

Schedule phone consultation >>

ARE THERE COURT FEES SEPARATE FROM THE COST OF SIMPLEDIVORCE FILER?

Yes. Montgomery County requires court fees of $280.00 and $52.50, paid at two separate points in the process. They must be paid by money order or certified cashier’s check.

CAN I USE SIMPLEDIVORCE FILER IF I AM NOT A RESIDENT OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY, PA?

Yes. Any Pennsylvania resident (of six months or more) can file for divorce in any county of Pennsylvania.

WE NEED HELP WITH DIVIdING OUR RETIREMENT ACCOUNT UPON DIVORCE. IS THAT INCLUDED WITH SIMPLEDIVORCE™ FILER?

CAN I USE SIMPLEDIVORCE FILER IF MY SPOUSE ISN'T AWARE OF THE DIVORCE OR REFUSES TO DIVORCE?

No. SimpleDivorce™ Filer is designed for couples who are both in agreement to divorce and willing to take the necessary steps to file for a divorce decree.  If you need individal legal advice before filing,  you should obtain this separately before using SimpleDivorce™ Filer. We provide divorce forms and filing instructions to help you obtain your divorce decree in county court. You are ultimately responsible for obtaining your own legal advice in reference to the possible waiver of any legal or property rights that you may have at the time of the divorce filing. If you have questions, we recommend visiting www.Avvo.com for online attorney forums, affordable legal teleconsults and attorney referrals. 

 

IF I FILE USING SIMPLEDIVORCE FILER WITHOUT A MARITAL SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT (MSA), AM I WAIVING ALL PROPERTY RIGHTS, INCLUDING EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION, TEMPORARY ALIMONY, ALIMONY, SPOUSAL SUPPORT, PENSIONS, AND 401(K)? 

Yes, if you use SimpleDivorce Filer and decide not to include an MSA, you are waiving all of these rights. Any property distribution is based solely upon your verbal agreement. The court cannot enforce verbal agreements and you cannot renegotiate terms once the divorce is final.

HOW MUCH TIME WILL SIMPLEDIVORCE FILER REQUIRE OF ME? AM I JUST SIGNING SOME PAPERS?

Filing for divorce in Montgomery County involves a 3-step process.  Pennsylvania requires a 90-day waiting period once the Divorce Complaint has been filed.  After the 90-days ends, you will continue to file remaining required documents.  Your file will then be presented to an assigned judge, who will issue the decree at his/her discretion based on their schedule and time of year (vacations and holidays).  The signing and mailing paperwork is just a few hours of your time. Overall, the process takes as little as 4 months, from start to finish.
