New Pennsylvania Law Reduces No-Fault Divorce, Waiting Period to 1 Year

The waiting period for a no-fault divorce in Pennsylvania has recently been reduced from two years to one year.  House Bill 380, which Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf signed into law on October 4, 2016 will go into effect on December 4, 2016.

This new law is not retroactive and does not impact divorces that are already filed and pending.  However, divorce complaints filed after December 4, 2016, can proceed under the one-year waiting period.  This new law also does not change cases where the parties consent to the divorce.

Each personal situation is different, so please call our divorce lawyers at 724-349-6768 for individual legal advice.
