Fortunately, our Harrisburg divorce attorneys are well-versed in Pennsylvania divorce law and can help you navigate through this difficult time. Having a skilled divorce lawyer on your side can ensure your rights, assets, and best interests are fully protected. It can also give you peace of mind knowing that your needs are being prioritized.

Factors to Consider During Your Divorce

Our lawyers have more than 65 years of combined experience and we are committed to helping make your divorce as easy and efficient as possible for you. It is important to consider every aspect of your divorce case and understand what a judge may look at if you choose to litigate. For example, if you are seeking alimony, the judge will likely consider the length of the marriage, whether one spouse supported another financially, and other factors. Our firm handles all types of divorces, including uncontested, contested, and mediated divorces.

We can help you with all of the important issues involved in a divorce, such as:

  • Equitable distribution of property
  • Asset protection
  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Visitation

Consider Mediating Your Divorce Case

Mediation is a common form of dispute resolution which can be used to resolve family law and divorce issues. It allows you and your spouse to meet with your own Harrisburg divorce attorneys to come to decisions about important matters.

Mediation offers a significant advantage to both parties involved since the important decisions are not left up to the court. In addition to paying less money than you would have to for divorce litigation, mediation is more private and takes less time than litigation. Mediation also allows you and your spouse to preserve an amicable relationship, as it is far less combative than the divorce litigation process.

Whether you are considering mediation or are involved in a contested marriage, Shaffer & Engle is here to help. Call us today at (717) 268-4287 to schedule your consultation.

What Our
Clients Have to Say

  • We love you, Elisabeth! You are a "for real" woman!

  • They handled everything beautifully and were able to minimize our anxiety throughout a difficult process.

    “Jeff is the fourth attorney that I have worked with regarding custody of my son. My previous attorneys were neither knowledgeable of the law as it applied to my case nor followed through on the actions they said they would take. Not only did Jeff know what he was doing, but he did everything that he said he would in a timely fashion. Given that my case involved an international relocation, allocation of sole custody for residency purposes abroad, and a non-custodial parent who was anything but cooperative, there was a high likelihood that my case would be unsuccessful with even the potential of being ordered to return to the US to maintain physical custody of my son. Today my child and I are happily living abroad and I was able to obtain the residency permit for my son to remain here. I attribute the success of my case to Jeff and his firm. They handled everything beautifully and were able to minimize our anxiety throughout a difficult process. Thank you!”

    Former Client

  • Jeff advised me appropriately and always responded to my calls promptly.

    “At the law offices of Shaffer & Engle, my case was handled with professionalism, compassion, and dedication. Facing criminal charges was a very frightening experience to me, but I knew I was in good hands with Jeff Engle. I had no past experiences with the judicial system. I felt I was treated with courtesy and dignity. Jeff did everything within his legal powers to provide a great service when I was in need. From my experience with Jeff, he has been more than a lawyer; he is now considered a great new friend of my family. He took a personal interest in my case and for that I am eternally grateful. Jeff always delivered on what he said to me and did everything he set out to do. Jeff fought the prosecutor (DA) every step of the way without hesitation. Jeff advised me appropriately and always responded to my calls promptly. What could have been a truly awful situation was resolved completely to my satisfaction. I am available at any time to address any questions with respect to Jeff Engle as an attorney or as a person. I hold him in the highest regard. If anyone ever wanted to see the definition of what a true attorney is...they should be able to open up a dictionary and see a picture of Jeff next to it. I would and will recommend him and his law firm to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and aggressive law firm or criminal defense attorney.”

  • You believed in me and gave me the courage to tell the jury my side of the story

    “Dear Miss Elisabeth, I can't thank you enough for giving me my life back! Everyone told me I should just plead guilty but I knew I didn't do what they said I did. You believed in me and gave me the courage to tell the jury my side of the story and explain why I signed a confession when I never committed that crime. I was very scared during the trial but I felt good knowing you believed in me. I am a free man today because of you. God bless you.”
