Question: 

I want to stop a divorce in Pennsylvania?

State: 
Pennsylvania

Answer: 

It is very unlikely that you can stop a divorce by yourself if your spouse is determined to make it happen. You can probably slow it down, but in Pennsylvania (a mixed “fault” divorce state) you will have a hard time halting a no-fault divorce initiated by a spouse who’s determined to see it through even over a spouse’s objections. If you can prove to the court that there does exist “fault” in the marriage, you might be able to slow down the process as it changes over to a fault-based proceeding. But the process will still continue. Even if there is no fault found, your spouse can continue to proceed with a 3301(c) no-fault divorce action where a final decree will be granted after two years of separation regardless of your feelings on the situation. – The Divorce.com Team
