Pennsylvania is an equitable distribution state when it comes to the division of marital assets. As opposed to a “community property” state, equitable distribution does not presume an equal division of marital property, and the goal of economic justice will frequently dictate otherwise.
Equitable distribution is a three-step process, requiring the identification of the components of the marital estate, the valuation of these assets, and the application of relevant economic factors to determine the actual distribution between the parties.
The division of marital property is one of the most complex phases of the divorce process - which is why you should contact the family law attorney at Sebald, Hackwelder, & Knox.

Because I listened to his expert advice, I will serve NO prison time, NO jail time, and my fine was minimal. Thanks again Stephen for a tough uphill battle, and you never gave up.
Attorney Sebald represented me in 2005 for a DUI. So when I was facing legal problems again in 2015 for getting 3 DUI's in a 5 month period due to an addiction to alcohol I knew I needed him to represent me again. Mr. Sebald truly cares about his clients. I met with him we discussed my case and what I was facing. He guided me on what I should do. He doesn't sugar coat things. Mr. Sebald is honest with you from the beginning and will do everything he can to get the best possible outcome. I was facing some pretty serious consequences and through his advice, guidance and representation I not only was able to avoid Jail time but also get help for my problem with alcohol. I truly believe if it weren't for him I would not be where I am today. After hiring Attorney Sebald he traveled to Lycoming county to represent me for my preliminary hearing and sentencing. He called and spoke with the D.A., judges as well as other attorneys in that area. He also represented me here in Erie county for my preliminary hearing as well as sentencing. He does his research. I would strongly recommend Mr Sebald to anyone who needs legal representation.
Eric has helped us numerous times. He has been there for us

I received a speeding ticket while traveling through Erie, PA. Steve and his expert team took care of everything while I was 600 miles away in North Carolina. He greatly reduced my conviction and fines. Valerie on his team took the time to hand-hold me through the process. I truly appreciate all that Steve and his team did to resolve this positively for me.
I have many good things to say about Mr. Hackwelder and his team. From the
