Factors to Consider During Your Divorce in PA

Our lawyers have more than 65 years of combined experience and we are committed to helping make your divorce in PA 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 in PA, such as:

Consider Mediating Your Pennsylvania 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.

We also serve clients throughout Dauphin County.

What Our
clients Have to Say

  • Not only did Jeff know what he was doing, but he did everything that he said he would in a timely fashion.

    “Jeff is is 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...”

  • Jeff presents himself as a very knowledgeable and able attorney with sincere personal interest in the success of your case.

    “From the minute you call Jeff Engle's office, you are treated with first class respect and service. Jeff is very up front about his experience, results and belief in the success or possible issues with your case. From the time of retainment, Jeff's use of electronic forms of communication keep you up to date to the minute whenever there are developments and progress in your case.

During times of uncertainty, having someone of Jeff's demeanor at your side will simply make you feel that no matter what the outcome may be, he is right there with you. There was not one time during the course of my case that I felt Jeff was not thoughtful and prepared for. I cannot say enough for the level of professionalism this man presents while representing you as a client.”
