Advocating For Families In Legal Matters

Handling legal issues within the family is often stressful, especially if it involves young children caught in the middle of a divorce. Divorce and other legal matters can create a sensitive and emotionally charged environment.

However, your situation does not have to be like this. At Gordon & Dennison, we understand that every family is different. We provide individualized care and honest counsel to families to ease their situation. Attorney Jeffrey M. Gordon was the former Family Law Master in Jefferson County, appointed by the court to facilitate the process of contested divorces. He brings this extensive experience in family law to help families throughout Jefferson County and western Pennsylvania.

Supporting You Through Divorce

In Pennsylvania, spouses can base a divorce on:

  • Mutual consent: In an uncontested divorce, neither spouse committed wrongdoing. They simply consent to divorce due to irreconcilable differences.
  • Fault: One spouse is "at fault," which involves wrongdoing such as domestic violence or abandonment.
  • Separation: If spouses separate for one year or more, they can pursue a divorce.

No matter the type of divorce, our firm will support and guide you and your family through issues involving:

  • Alimony
  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Property division

Our personalized approach to your situation helps us negotiate and define the best options for you and your family.
