About Chalfont, PA
Chalfont is a borough in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, located within the Delaware Valley. Chalfont is home to numerous Colonial-era and Victorian-era homes and commercial buildings within the Chalfont Historic District; the District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Present-day Chalfont is part of land that William Penn acquired through treaty with members of the Lenape tribe of Native Americans who dwelled in the area. The land was ultimately purchased by Simon Butler in 1720, who built a mill and was instrumental to the area’s early economic and social growth, serving as Justice of the Peace and overseeing the construction of roads in and out of the area. Chalfont’s growth continued through the mid-19th century when the North Pennsylvania Railroad established a station in the area, culminating in the incorporation of the borough of Chalfont in the early 20th century.
Frequently Asked Questions about Divorce in Chalfont, PA
The length of the divorce process depends on numerous factors, including the size and complexity of the couple’s assets and whether the couple has children. The length of time to resolve a divorce also depends on how quickly spouses are able to resolve outstanding issues between themselves and on the availability and schedule of the court. In Pennsylvania, the shortest amount of time that a divorce can take is approximately 3 months, provided a couple is seeking a no-fault divorce, has been separated at least one year, has no assets to divide and does not need to arrange child custody, child support, or alimony. If a couple has significant assets or has children and are unable to come to an agreement, then a divorce can take longer.
Yes. Although a no-fault divorce can be obtained more quickly if both spouses consent to the divorce, either spouse can obtain a no-fault divorce by alleging that there has been an “irretrievable breakdown” of the marriage and meeting certain time requirements. So long as a couple has been separated for at least one year, then either spouse can file for divorce without the consent of the other. The other spouse is entitled to a hearing to contest the one-year separation. It is not necessary that spouses live separately to be considered separated, merely that they have ceased activities of a normal married couple such as sharing expenses or having sexual relations.
