Lebanon Divorce Attorneys
The realization that a marriage is ending is one of the most emotional things a person can experience. Family forms a foundation for many people’s lives, and when that foundation erodes, it can be exceedingly difficult to deal with. When you face divorce, you need an experienced lawyer who will stand up for your rights and protect the best interests of your children.
At Henry & Beaver, LLP, we have provided legal services to families in the Lebanon Valley since 1895. We understand the difficult nature of divorce cases. We treat every client with dignity and respect, and we take pride in forming meaningful relationships with clients. You and your children are our focus, and we will do everything we can to help you get through the legal process and move forward in life.
To arrange a consultation with one of our Lebanon divorce attorneys, please call 717-274-3644 or contact us online. You will meet directly with one of our experienced family and divorce lawyers: John H. Whitmoyer or Heather A. Eggert. Your case will never be passed off to a paralegal or non-lawyer staff member.
Handling All Divorce-Related Issues
A divorce involves detailed and often complex problems that cannot be solved without deep knowledge of Pennsylvania’s family laws. Some of the many issues that our attorneys will help you resolve are:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support and spousal support/alimony
- Complex property division issues
- Post-judgment modification
- Parental relocation
We find that many couples benefit from divorce mediation, which is a negotiation process in which the spouses decide divorce-related issues in a cooperative way. This process gives more control to the spouses as opposed to having a judge decide. Mediation is not for everyone, however, and we are always ready to assert your rights in court.
We have represented many members of the National Guard or Army Reserve (or their civilian spouses). Our lawyers are familiar with the special considerations in military divorce, such as pay systems, housing allowances, continuation of spousal benefits and division of military pensions.
Pennsylvania Separation Agreement Attorney
Many people ask about getting legally separated rather than divorced. Pennsylvania law does not recognize legal separation as a status; you are either married or not. However, you and your spouse can have a separation agreement. These documents can have an impact on how much child support or spousal support you must pay or are entitled to receive upon divorce. Separation agreements are highly complex and must be tailored to your individual situation. Speak with one of our attorneys before deciding that separation is the right decision.
