What to Expect During Your Divorce in Bucks County

When you or your spouse files a Divorce Complaint with the Court of Common Pleas at the Bucks County Courthouse in Doylestown, the divorce process begins. In order to file, one of you must be a Bucks County resident for at least six months prior to filing.

When your divorce is uncontested

You or your spouse can obtain a divorce by proceeding under one of Pennsylvania’s No Fault grounds by stating in your divorce papers that the marriage is irretrievably broken. Both of you must agree to the divorce in an affidavit. The court will grant your divorce 90 days after the affidavit is filed citing mutual consent, provided all of the property issues have been resolved.

When your divorce is contested

You or your spouse may still obtain a No Fault divorce where one party contests the divorce after a two-year separation, providing all of the property issues have been resolved.

Pennsylvania is also a Fault state. A Fault Divorce may include:

  • Adultery
  • Bigamy
  • Desertion
  • Cruel and inhuman treatment endangering the life or health of the spouse
  • Imprisonment for two or more years
  • Personal indignities
  • Confinement in a mental institution

If the two of you agree on issues of Property Division, your divorce can be granted without a trial. But if you don’t agree, you’ll have to attend a court hearing. The court may order you to attend mediation sessions.
