Divorce – Our Practice Areas are Vast

Exceptional expertise in a wide array of divorce-related practice areas is critical to ensure desired outcomes.  Whether you are concerned about financial support, child support, visitation rights, or any other divorce-related issue, take heart knowing LaMonaca Law covers the spectrum:

Out-of-Court Agreements

It is a misconception that all divorce cases end up in court.  With out-of-court agreements, you bypass a divorce-court judge who would, otherwise, decide how your personal issues would be resolved.  Out-of-court agreements involve informal negotiations between both parties with respective lawyers who would facilitate details concerning property division, child support, child custody, alimony, etc. 


Your divorce attorney from LaMonaca Law would make sure agreements are negotiated in good faith

and that the agreements do not, unfairly, compromise your rights – we will not allow anyone to take advantage of you!  Our divorce attorneys draft and execute out-of-court agreements with minimal cost, minimal time, and minimized stress. 

Marital-Property Distribution

Your divorce attorney will help determine the best solution for dividing and distributing marital property.  This could include real-estate in Media, PA and elsewhere, business assets, intricate investments, and more.  Marital property distribution can be efficient and straight forward or quite complex.  Any final decision would be based on fairness rather than equality.  


Our legal team will make sure you are awarded the marital-estate portion, to which you are legally entitled, regardless of how small or large your marital estate might be.

Military Divorce

If you are part of a military family and a divorce is pending, our Media, PA divorce attorneys can ease some of the emotional burden by handling all the aspects of your case!  We would keep you, continually, updated and offer our prudent advice, whenever appropriate.  Whether you or your spouse might be on a tour-of-duty or a military assignment out of the state or out of the country, our divorce attorneys can, fully, assist even if circumstances must be handled, internationally. 

No-Fault Divorce

No-fault divorces in Pennsylvania move forward as contested or uncontested.  Contested cases involve one spouse being in disagreement that a divorce is necessary.  If you are contesting your pending divorce, we will address the disputed issues to achieve the appropriate resolution.  Be assured, your rights and interests will be at the forefront!


Uncontested divorces mean both spouses agree the marriage should dissolve.  Our divorce attorneys can relieve some of the turmoil and tension as we, thoughtfully and thoroughly, guide our Media, PA clients through the no-fault-divorce process. 

Post-Divorce Modification

There are any number of circumstances that may warrant a modification to the terms of your divorce decree.  They could include 1) the misuse or abuse of drugs or alcohol by an ex-spouse 2) an ex-spouse having moved or planning to move to another state with the child(ren) 3) an ex-spouse being non-compliant with the property-settlement agreement 4) either ex-spouse experiencing loss of employment, and more.  


Regardless of how long it has been since your divorce decree was issued, do not hesitate to contact our divorce attorneys to discuss a post-divorce modification if significant new developments have emerged!


Divorces end marriages, but annulments ‘deny’ the marriage, ever, existed.  Seeking an annulment could be triggered by 1) one party being under 18 years of age and unable to consent due to some type of incompetence and 2) the marriage having been performed under duress, coercion, or fraud.  Other situations may apply.  


Are you desiring an annulment?  Your divorce attorney from our firm would perform a thorough analysis of your situation to determine the appropriate course of action.  Annulments are synonymous with the marriage becoming legally null and void.  In the end, both parties are able move forward without being labeled as ex-husband or ex-wife – it’s the closest thing to It never, ever, happened!

Uncontested Divorce

Some individuals believe that an uncontested divorce is better handled without divorce-attorney representation.  This is not recommended.  Even in the most ‘simple’ or ‘peaceful’ divorce situations, issues can become complex – property assets, financial accounts, investments, custody of child(ren), spousal support, and other details can require a great deal of legal expertise.


Uncontested divorce issues can turn into contested divorce issues.  Unexpected disagreements would require a compromise before the divorce is final, and having legal representation would be critical.  Your LaMonaca Law divorce attorney would help to negotiate the terms as well as handle all the intricate paperwork.

Divorce – Receiving Your Entitled Support

Divorce attorneys from LaMonaca Law specialize in 6 different types of support:  1) Spousal support 2) Child support 3) Interstate Support 4) Paternity 5) Alimony Pendente and 6) Alimony.  Here are three of the most common types of divorce-related support:


Alimony – After divorce, you want your lifestyle to maintain as much normalcy, as possible.  To ensure that, one spouse may be ordered to pay alimony which would hinge on the circumstances of the newly-ended marriage.


Generally, alimony is awarded to cover food, shelter, clothing, living expenses and, possibly, other costs.  In Pennsylvania, alimony is not guaranteed.  In the end, a judge will decide whether to award alimony.  Our divorce attorneys will be with you with the best legal counsel for your alimony claim or defense.


Spousal Support – When spouses separate, the party who earns less may be entitled to receive spousal support from the higher earner during the divorce process.  If you are a dependent spouse, your LaMonaca Law divorce attorney will fight for your rights to ensure you receive what you are entitled to!


On the other hand, if you are the party required to pay spousal support, we will see that your support obligation is fair and aligns with Pennsylvania law.


Child Support – Implementation of child support or modifications with existing child support arrangements can become necessary.  Even if both parties can come to an agreement, a divorce lawyer is needed to handle the mediation and the legal paperwork.


Whether you are paying child support or receiving child support, you want a divorce attorney who will make sure you are not overpaying nor being underpaid!  Is your ex-spouse moving out of state or has he or she, already, done so and you remain concerned your child support could become compromised?  Is your estranged partner refusing to make child support payments?  Call LaMonaca Law, now!
