If you are going through a divorce, you want an attorney who will listen to your concerns and help you come up with a plan that works for you, from the division of assets to child custody and support disputes. At Bentley Law Offices, P.C. , we help individuals in Reading, Lancaster, Wyomissing, Lebanon and throughout Pennsylvania go through the uncontested and contested divorce processes.
When two parties agree that it is best to go their separate ways, it may be possible to obtain an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce is possible in situations where each spouse agrees on aspects of child custody and property division. One benefit of an uncontested divorce is that it will save you time, money, and may help your relationship with your kids, as well as repairing your relationship with the other parent.
Contested divorces can wear on the parties involved. However, in many cases they cannot be helped. In some circumstances, contested divorces involve litigation, multiple court hearings, petitions before the court, motions by the judge, and contempt of court. All these factors can make things messy, but we will do everything we can to make the process smoother and expedite matters when we can.
