New Jersey and Pennsylvania are equitable distribution states, which means that all property acquired during your marriage will be divided in an equitable manner. Equitable doesn't always mean 50-50. In Pennsylvania, family law judges can consider marital misconduct when deciding how assets will be divided, which can lead to an emotionally charged proceeding when it comes to property settlement. Property you had before the marriage, as well as gifts and inheritances received during the marriage, are yours to keep as long as you have documentation showing the separate nature of the property.

Spousal support or alimony can be awarded, based on such factors as the length of the marriage, the health of each party, and the ability of each party to earn income.

If you have children, one of the parties typically will have primary physical or residential custody of the children while the other party will have visitation. The party with visitation will be responsible for paying child support based on a state child support formula.

After practicing law in southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey for more than 20 years, John M. Kenney knows how family court judges have decided property settlement, spousal support, child custody, and child support disputes in the past. Based on the facts of your case, the lawyer can let you know what you can expect in your case before you go through the time and expense of a contested divorce proceeding. Mr. Kenney is known for honest, straight-forward communications with his clients.

I thought I could handle my divorce by completing all my forms on my own. Well, I was wrong and the courts couldn't tell me what I did wrong. After 2 years of going back and forth trying to figure out what I did wrong, I decided to hand it over to a professional/lawyer. I found John on a Google search. I was able to get an appointment right away with him. He was able to work around my schedule. John took control of everything and and within 3 weeks my divorce was completed. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family Joanna Kane
