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 a free consultation.
