How Do Spousal Support And Alimony Work?
In Pennsylvania, three main types of payments exist at different stages of divorce. Our firm is experienced in these cases and will find out if you qualify for this type of support:
- Before divorce is initiated — Spousal support, also known as spousal maintenance, is payments for the support of a dependent spouse.
- Once divorce is filed — Alimony pendente lite (APL) is payments granted to a dependent spouse while the divorce is in process, but before the divorce has been finalized.
- After the divorce — Alimony is payments made after the divorce decree is issued and property division has been decided.
You may need to alter your initial support arrangement as your circumstances change. Our lawyer can work with you on modification if changes need to be addressed.
