Southeastern Pennsylvania residents are informed regarding the need for a separation lawyer

Ending a marriage is complicated in and of itself. There are assets to divide, perhaps children to arrange for, and monetary support to be decided. As if that isn’t stressful enough, people are probably dealing with very raw emotions. This can make wise decision-making difficult. When all is said and done, separation and divorce is not something that one should have handled on their own. While working through the difficult task of getting a new start, the last thing a person needs is regrets over how things were handled in dissolving the marriage. It is important to have a professional who is experienced in handling issues that can affect a person for the rest of his or her life. In Southeastern Pennsylvania, Attorney Jack A. Rounick is the experienced one to turn to when you need a divorce or separation lawyer.

Pennsylvania is not a state that recognizes the status of “legally separated.” Separation occurs when a couple begins to live and act as individuals, rather than as a married couple. This date is essential in future proceedings and there are usually key indicators that can lead to a determination of an actual date of separation. Couples needing help with issues that are often very similar to divorce, however, will want to be advised on a separation agreement between the two parties. Retaining a skilled attorney during this process is essential to protect the parties’ legal rights, prepare the agreement, and help with negotiations until a contract is agreed upon by both parties. Separation agreements will cover many things, including the following:

Division of property and debt – home, cars, furniture, and similar

Child support and alimony, if applicable

Custody and visitation, if applicable

Attorney Jack Rounick is also available when a party needs representation for a divorce. Many of the same things that a separation agreement covers would also be relevant and similar for a divorce. Both parties can agree and choose to proceed with a divorce. This is typically a 90-day process, upon consent of both parties. If only one spouse is seeking the divorce, the parties must wait two years from the date of separation before the request for a divorce is granted. This is when a separation agreement or determination of the date of separation would become most valuable. There are also options for at-fault divorce, in which one party is innocent and has suffered injury in some way, according to legal guidelines.

Because there are so many variables, do not gamble that things will work out the way you hope they will. Seek counsel from the Law Office of Jack A. Rounick, LLC, for your future and peace of mind.
