Frequently Asked Pittsburgh, PA Questions

How long do I have to live in Pittsburgh before I can file for divorce?

Either party must have resided in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for at least six months immediately prior to the commencement of a divorce action.

Is there a mandatory divorce waiting period in Pittsburgh?

Parties must wait 90 days from the latter of the date of filing of the divorce complaint or the date of service of the divorce complaint on the non-filing party before they may proceed.

After 90 days have expired, the length of the divorce depends on how quickly the parties can resolve any outstanding issues of dividing their marital estate.

How can I serve my spouse in Pittsburgh? What happens if my attempts to serve my spouse do not work?

Pennsylvania Rule of Civil Procedure 1930.4 governs rules for service. In addition to these rules, simultaneous service by certified and regular mail is permitted.

If the certified mail is refused, but the regular mail is not returned within 15 days, service may be deemed complete. If the regular mail is returned as unclaimed then service must be accomplished by other means.

Service must be complete with 30 days of the filing of the complaint, or 90 days if service is taking place outside of the Commonwealth.

What are the specific forms I will need to file for a divorce in Pittsburgh?

You need to file a Complaint in Divorce and some proof of service of the complaint on the non-filing party (the defendant). The defendant can submit an Acceptance of Service in conformity with Pennsylvania Rule of Civil Procedure 1930.4(d).

Where do I file for divorce in Pittsburgh?

You may file for divorce at your county Prothonotary’s office, also called the Department of Court Records in some counties.
