Family Law - Divorce Attorney in Lehigh Valley

At MHK Attorneys, we are equipped to handle whatever your divorce may bring. We will stand by you every step of the way and protect your rights whether you need assistance with an uncontested divorce or have major issues to be resolved.

Divorce Representation Tailored To Your Unique Needs And Goals

Divorce being about “going to divorce court” and fighting to make sure you get your share of the property is a flawed perception. It is more accurate to think of divorce as many small cases that need to be resolved to achieve a finalized divorce that will stand the test of time.

Our attorneys have more than 25 years of experience resolving all separation- and divorce-related issues, including:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Spousal support/alimony
  • Division of assets and property

We are particularly skilled at resolving complex divorces, including those involving business assets, multiple properties and substantial financial assets. We focus on critical issues such as the tax implications of property settlements to ensure that our clients maximize their share of the marital estate.

Can You Get Divorced?

You or your spouse must reside in the state for at least six months to be granted a divorce in Pennsylvania.

You must have grounds for the divorce other than the marriage being “irretrievably broken,” if you do not meet the residency requirement. Grounds for divorce include:

  • Bigamy or adultery
  • Imprisonment for at least two years
  • Cruel and inhumane treatment (endangering the life or health of a spouse)
  • Confinement in a mental institution (with no discharge expected soon)
  • Personal indignities to you, the innocent and injured spouse

We can help you and your spouse finalized an uncontested divorce, ensuring that the paperwork and filings are handled properly. We can negotiate strongly on your behalf and represent you in court if a trial becomes necessary in a contested divorce.
