Pennsylvania Divorce Attorneys

When you hire a divorce lawyer, it is important to spend time discussing how to approach the divorce that you envision and whether the attorney is prepared to advocate on your behalf according to your needs. Perhaps you and your spouse have agreed on how you wish to handle the distribution of assets and debts, child custody and visitation, and alimony (spousal support), if any. In this case, you want an assurance that your attorney will work to expedite the plan that you and your wife or husband have in mind rather than adding fuel to any fires that may erupt.
