In Philadelphia, local residents have either experienced or heard about divorce. Some of them may have experienced it firsthand, during childhood, or from talking to friends or relatives who went through divorce. The truth is that the process itself is not easy, depending on the circumstances. There are cases when spouses are dragged into a drawn out dispute until they finally reach an agreement.
