- Family Law: Divorce, Custody, & Property distribution
Most people do not lose their house or car, in fact, most people file to protect their assets.
Yes, but the bankruptcy will affect your credit score and you will be offered higher interest rates on loans.
It takes about three months from filing the petition until the discharge order is entered. (in a Chapter 7 case)
For a new Chapter 7 case, you can not file until eight years from your prior discharge.

How much do you charge for a bankruptcy?
Our flat fee for a Chapter 7 is $1365 which includes all filing fees.
Estates & Wills
No, Pennsylvania law determines which of your family members or relatives will inherit your assets.
So you can control the estate / probate process. You choose who receives your assets, appoint guardian(s) for your minor children and select an executor to manage the assets in your estate.
Your executor is responsible for collecting your assets, paying your bills and debts, paying your taxes, keeping all financial records, and distributing your assets according to your will. If you do not appoint an executor, through a will, then your heirs will be left to dispute amongst themselves regarding who will administer the estate.
If you are not survived by a spouse, your children will inherit your assets. If they are minor children, the court will appoint a guardian to care for them.
We charge $225 for an individual will and $350 for wills for a husband and wife.
Family Law, DIVORCE
It varies so much that it is difficult to give a general answer. The length of time often depends on how cooperatively the individuals involved conduct themselves. In most cases PA law mandates a 90 day waiting period from the date-of-service of the complaint.
Our flat fee for an uncontested divorce is $395 plus court costs; which are approximately $200.
Family Law, CUSTODY & SUPPORT
Support is based on each parties monthly net income as applied to the state-wide support guidelines.
Much depends on the circumstances of each case. A flat or hourly fee will be quoted for you following your consultation.
The petition is filed with the Family Division of the court. In Allegheny County, the parties are required to participate in the Generations Education and Mediation program as part of the custody process.
It varies depending on how the complaint for custody is filed. The filing fees depend on whether custody is raised in a divorce complaint, or as a separate complaint for custody. The Generations Education fees depend on the number of children involved. Total fees depend on the circumstances of each case. The court’s filing fee is approximately $156 and the education and mediation fee is $140 for each parent. Additional educational fees may apply to children based on their age(s).
Family Law, PROPERTY DISTRIBUTION
With only some exceptions, all assets acquired by the parties during their marriage, regardless of who purchased them or how they are titled.
We charge $175 hourly.
