You or your spouse are ready to end your marriage. You do not want to fight things out in a Pennsylvania court. You both have already agreed on how you will divide assets and -- if applicable -- how you will split time with your children. This leaves you wondering if you have to go through the typical divorce process. Thankfully, the answer is no.
When the United States Supreme Court ruled the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, the LGBT community celebrated. Unfortunately, that decision failed to remove other potential prejudices facing the community when it comes to expanding their families through adoption. Fortunately, overcoming any potential roadblocks is possible if you remain optimistic and take the right steps.
