  • There are a number of ways to proceed with a divorce in Bucks county. In order to begin the process a complaint in divorce must be filed at the courthouse and the non-filing spouse must be served. The non-filing spouse can accept service or a process server can serve the papers and sign an affidavit affirming that the papers have been served. When the parties agree, a divorce can be uncontested. Pennsylvania has a number of no fault provisions. Both parties must sign affidavits affirming that the divorce is by mutual consent and the Court will grant a divorce 90 days after the papers are signed, provided all property issues have been settled. If the divorce is contested, a no fault divorce can be obtained after a two-year separation and after settling any property issues. A fault divorce can also be obtained if the non-filing spouse has committed bigamy, adultery, been imprisoned, confined to a mental institution or has been physically and emotionally abusive.
