Separation Agreements

Sometimes, a couple faces difficulties in their marriage, but may not be ready to officially file for divorce. Although there is no official status that recognizes married couples as "legally separated" in Pennsylvania, a separation agreement may be a logical option to protect the personal and financial interests of individuals who are considering a divorce.

Around Town


As part of a Bucks County law firm, we live and work in a beautiful area in the Greater Philadelphia region. One of the jewels of Doylestown, where our office is located, is Fonthill. Located on East Court Street, Fonthill was the home of the archeologist and tile maker Henry Chapman Mercer. Mercer constructed his castle between 1908 and 1912, along with the neighboring Moravian Tile Works and Mercer Museum, of poured-in-place concrete. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, the home and its 44 rooms, 18 fireplaces and 10 bathrooms are open to the public for tours.
