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.

  • He took the time to explain the process, understand the facts of my case and provide suggestions like retaining a private investigator.

    “I came to Shaffer & Engle Law Offices searching for hope after I entered a plea in my criminal case. I had a false allegation filed against me for a sexual offense that I did not commit. I was involved with another lawyer for 2 ½ years, when it came down to day before court we felt he was not prepared to represent me. I either took the plea of "Nolo Contendere" or went to jail the day of the trial. I felt trapped. I had this allegation against me and I was innocent. I met with the Attorney Engle. He took the time to explain the process, understand the facts of my case and provide suggestions like retaining a private investigator. He offered to represent me and quickly moved to withdraw my guilty plea. That was granted by the court and we proceeded to prepare for trial. They uncovered many things that our other lawyer did not bother to investigate. They met with character witnesses after hours to make sure my defense would be solid. Long story short, the DA in my case withdrew the charges. I went from a convicted man to completely being vindicated. Shaffer and Engle Law Offices also were able to assist me in another matter relating to the criminal case, but in civil court. The same results, all charges were dismissed. I appreciate the work they did, their prompt service, care and attention they showed to me and my family. I found their services to be affordable when compared to what they did for me. I would highly recommend them for anyone charged with a crime that they did not do.”
