Grounds for Filing for Divorce
in the State of Pennsylvania
There are two all-encompassing grounds for filing for
divorce: no-fault grounds and fault grounds.
A divorce may be granted based upon no-fault grounds in two different ways. One way in which a no-fault divorce may be granted is through mutual-consent, in which both parties agree that the divorce is mutually desired. A no-fault divorce may also be granted in the situation in which one party can demonstrate that the couple has lived separately for at least one year, and that no repair to the relationship can be made. In this situation, a divorce may be granted under the understanding that the marriage is irreparably-broken.
A divorce may also be granted in the situation where one of the parties in the marriage has committed a transgression and is deemed at-fault. These situations may include incidents such as adultery and domestic violence.
