About Doylestown, PA
Doylestown is a borough located in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and also serves as the county seat. Doylestown’s namesake, William Doyle, received a license in 1745 to construct a tavern in the area that includes present-day Doylestown. Due to its position along the road between Philadelphia and Easton, Doylestown experienced significant growth during the colonial era, leading to the Pennsylvania General Assembly moving the county seat for Bucks County from Newtown to Doylestown in the early 19th century. As the county seat, Doylestown developed a strong residential and professional character through the 19th and early 20th centuries. However, pressures from suburban sprawl in the post-World War II era led to Doylestown reinventing its downtown area, placing new focus on the borough’s architectural heritage.
Frequently Asked Questions about Divorce in Doylestown, PA
No. Under Pennsylvania divorce law, the court can order separate proceedings for the issues of alimony, child custody, and child support, none of which need to be resolved before the court issues a judgment of divorce that legally ends the parties’ marriage. There are many reasons why parties may want to finalize a divorce before finalizing outstanding issues of alimony or child custody/support, such as one spouse wishing to get married to someone else.
Although it is not necessary for a person to be represented by an attorney to file for divorce in Pennsylvania, in most cases it is highly advisable to have legal representation if seeking a divorce, especially if you and your spouse have children, have assets to divide, if one or both of you are seeking alimony payments, or if you and your spouse have a prenuptial agreement. It is especially important to have legal representation if you and your spouse are attempting to negotiate a marital or property settlement agreement, to ensure that your interests are properly advocated and that your rights are protected.
