Pennsylvania Divorce Common Questions

Why do our own Divorce online?

If you and your spouse can come to an agreement on what to do with your property, and any issues regarding children, you can complete your own divorce papers quickly and cost effectively by doing it yourself online.

The DivorceWriterâ„¢ fee is just $149.

DivorceWriter is not a law firm and is not designed to be used for all divorces. If you have a "contested" divorce or need legal advice, you should consult an attorney licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania.

How long does a Pennsylvania divorce take? In Pennsylvania, a divorce can be finalized in as little as 90 days from the date the divorce is filed. It may take longer depending on the judge's schedule. The DivorceWriter documents and instructions allow you to complete your divorce as quickly as is possible.
Are court filing fees included with my purchase?

No. Each county in Pennsylvania charges a filing fee when you file your divorce. Filing fees vary from county to county, but typically range from $125.00 to $350.00 in Pennsylvania. Please check with the Prothonotary, also sometimes referred to as the Clerk, in the county where you will be filing for the exact filing fee.

If you cannot afford the county filing fee, you may request to have the fees waived by filing a petition to proceed In Forma Pauperis (IFP Petition). If you are on welfare or SSI, bring your welfare photo ID or proof receipt of SSI.

Do both of us have to go to Court? No. In Pennsylvania only one person needs to go to court to file the paperwork with the clerk.
How long can we take to complete the online interview? You can take as long as you need to complete the online interview.  With your divorce purchase you are given a password protected account allowing you to access it at any time.  When you have completed the online interview to your 100%, select the "Submit for Printing" button.
Can I make changes after receiving the printed documents? Yes. If you entered something incorrectly, or your circumstances have changed requiring updates to your documents, you can make the changes from your account and we will reprint your documents at no additional charge.

STEP 2: Affidavit of Consent

  • Both spouses sign their own Affidavit of Consent and file them with the Clerk/Prothonotary.

... Wait 90 days (from date of initial filing)

STEP 3 : Finalizing Your Divorce

Once your Decree is signed, your divorce is final.
