To obtain a divorce decree in Pennsylvania, you must address your economic issues (division of assets and debts, and alimony) by way of a Court Order or Agreement. The process through the Courts can take one to two years. The Judge’s decision can be appealed to a higher Court. As you can imagine, this is a long and costly process. If you cannot reach an agreement, binding arbitration provides another way to address the issues without the time and costs related to litigation.
After a final hearing is conducted in arbitration, we will issue a comprehensive Arbitration Award in approximately 30 days setting forth a detailed analysis of the parties’ positions on each issue and a decision as to each issue. Unless otherwise agreed to by the parties, this Award is final, binding and not subject to appeal and can be enforced through the Court.
