Jon & Kate No Fault Divorce Grounds

I stated in my last post that there was no way Kate and Jon Gosselin have been living apart for two years as she checked off in her divorce papers.  Instead of wondering why Kate apparently lied on her divorce papers , I decided to do some research and find out what the truth was. 


In the state of Pennsylvania there are two grounds for a no fault divorce.  The first option is to wait until after 90 days of serving the divorce papers and  if both parties agree that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” then a divorce can be granted.  The second option is if you have lived separate and apart for 2 years a no fault divorce can be granted.  That doesn’t mean that you can’t live in the same house, it only means that after you’ve realized that your marriage is over and began living separately (different bedrooms, different life patterns), you must wait 2 years after that point for the no fault divorce to be granted. 

Even though the actual divorce papers are sealed and confidential, these are the only two options that Kate had in order to be granted a no fault divorce. So if Kate checked the first  box, then waited 90 days and John did not agree that the marriage was “irretrievably broken” , then Kate would have to wait two years to have the divorce finalized.  By checking both boxes, time is now accumulating in both scenarios. 

It truly sounded like Kate expected and wanted to work on their marriage.  Jon was the one that felt the marriage was doomed and that he definitely did not love Kate anymore and wanted out.  Whatever happened over the weekend to make Kate feel she had to file on Monday June 22,  to protect herself and her kids must have been a doozy. Past alleged infidelity didn’t make her run out and file.  Kate claims that something that happened over last weekend made her realize that divorce was the only option.
