Pennsylvania law provides for both fault and no fault divorce. A fault divorce could be based upon physical cruelty, adultery, indignities (subjecting the other spouse to treatment such that his/her life has been made burdensome and intolerable). There are other fault grounds, such as being committed to prison or mental institution for a period of at least two years.
Fault divorce requires a finding by a master or judge that the grounds, or reasons, for fault have been sufficiently proven to mandate a divorce based upon fault. Because of this, most reasons for fault divorce are not pursued. Having litigated quite a number of fault divorces, it often becomes a last resort if the other spouse will not agree to a no fault divorce and if there are sufficient reasons to pursue a fault divorce.
