At Snyder Family Law PC, I truly understand how difficult it is to go through a divorce. However, you don't have to go through this trying time alone. The Paoli divorce lawyer at Snyder Family Law PC is here to guide you through your divorce, step-by-step, until I help you arrive at a favorable outcome.

As your legal advocates, I can tirelessly fight for your best interest, and also adroitly handle matters regarding child custody and child support.

The Divorce Process

The divorce process can be complicated even when both parties consent to dissolve their marriage. You may think you can handle the legal side of a divorce by yourself, but in doing so you may face numerous pitfalls with lasting consequences. A Paoli family lawyer can help you understand your rights and avoid easy-to-make mistakes, while simultaneously advocating on behalf of your best interest.

The divorce process generally goes as follows:


  • One spouse files a complaint for divorce and serves the complaint
  • There is a waiting period before the parties can file their consents to the divorce or seek a unilateral (no-fault) divorce
  • Either spouse may raise economic claims in the divorce action
  • Each spouse is entitled to conduct discovery to obtain financial information from the other side
  • Either spouse may seek interim relief on certain exigent economic claims
  • If the parties cannot agree on their economic claims, one party must file a motion to appoint the master
  • The master will then hold conferences to attempt to reach a resolution of the parties’ claims and, in the absence of an agreement, schedule the matter for trial
  • Either party may file exceptions to the Master’s recommendation after a hearing and argument will be held before a judge
  • After the parties’ economic claims are resolved by agreement or a court determination, the final divorce decree will be entered

While this is the most common route of divorce, I understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to any family matter. In certain situations, the couple may be more concerned with privacy and working together to solve issues, and in this case mediation could be right for you. Conversely, if the parties wish to avoid the delays and costs associated with litigation, arbitration is another option. Let me know how you would like to proceed during a case evaluation and a Paoli family law attorney can support you.
