The best legal advisor

Jack is an outstanding lawyer. He is empathetic and sympathetic to the needs of his client and is a true advocate for his client.

He is very ethical and stands his ground when he sees injustice.

Starting the process of divorce in Southeastern, PA

Ending a marriage can be a very tough decision. However, many times, couples come to the mutual decision to end a marriage when it doesn’t work out as intended. The legal journey ahead of you may seem daunting. Thankfully, Jack Rounick, attorney in Norristown, PA, is here to help you with your divorce and guide you through the process of taking the first steps to legal freedom.

In order to file for a divorce in the state of Pennsylvania, you or your spouse must live in the area for at least six months before the filing of the divorce. You must also have grounds for a divorce, which may be a fault divorce (adultery, cruel treatment, prison time, etc.) or a no-fault divorce (both parties agree that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” or 2 years separation). Once these requirements have been met, the process of a divorce may begin.

At the Law Offices of Jack A. Rounick, our team will help you understand all of the records that you must gather to prepare for your divorce. When filing for a divorce, all property, financial and material, must be accounted for, and certain records and paperwork are necessary for the proper division of the marital estate. Some of the records that will be needed for the divorce hearing include:
  • Place of marriage
  • Social security numbers of you, spouse, and any children
  • Estate documentation
  • Proof of grounds
  • Prenuptial / Postnuptial agreements
  • Financial documentation (paystubs, tax returns, other income)
  • Statements of bank accounts and credit cards (joint and individual accounts)
  • Stocks, bonds, and other assets
  • Leases, deeds, and titles to property
  • Loans (student, mortgage, auto, and personal)
  • List of monthly expenses
  • Copies of insurance policies
Even prior to gathering the necessary documentation, it is time to schedule a consultation with Attorney Jack Rounick. This is the perfect time to discuss what you want to obtain through the divorce, what you should do next and exactly what records to gather. Working with your attorney is important so that both you and your lawyer are on the same page throughout the process. This makes it easier for everyone involved. Being open and honest with your lawyer is essential for maintaining a trusting relationship and finding success and freedom through your divorce.
