No-Fault Divorce Mediation

Mediation can be used for any divorce, however, most mediation couples will choose the uncontested, no-fault divorce option. In Pennsylvania, a mutual consent no-fault divorce is the cheaper and faster option.


There are several different types of divorces in Pennsylvania. When a couple makes the decision to end a marriage, the decision will be made whether to use an adversarial or non-adversarial process. Even if fault grounds occurred (adultery, etc.), the couple could choose a no-fault divorce to avoid the expensive court process – even if one spouse’s behavior led to the marriage’s end. In a no-fault divorce, one spouse does not need to prove the other spouse committed adultery or other grounds. This option ultimately saves both spouses time, money, and years of stress. The outcome of either a fault or no-fault divorce will result in a divorce decree; however, the no-fault option can be granted in 90 days, compared to the fault option, which may take several years to complete.


When both parties have agreed to the no-fault divorce process, an amicable settlement is able to be reached. In a no-fault divorce, a mediator can help spouses negotiate alimony, spousal support, child support, custody, property division or any other important topic. Mediation is an affordable tool that can help resolve financial issues and disagreements so that both spouses can move forward in a positive direction. Making decisions together about your children, property, and debts results in less anxiety and stress. Keeping your family out of court is always the better option.


When considering a no-fault divorce, the first step is to find an experienced, professional mediator to help you and your family move forward in a peaceful, affordable, and respectful manner. A quick phone chat or consultation can provide you with the information to help you decide if this is the right option for your family.
