Alimony – How long? How much? How come?
Almost all divorcing clients ask about alimony in some manner:
- Is there alimony in Pennsylvania?
- Will I be paying/receiving alimony? How much will it be? How long will it last?
- Does it matter that I pay alimony to a prior spouse?
- Are there circumstances that will result in termination of an alimony award?
- And the list goes on.
Yes, there is alimony in Pennsylvania, but that is just one simple answer to only one of the questions of the sort mentioned above. Unlike child support, spousal support and alimony pendente lite, all of which are governed by the Pennsylvania Support Guidelines (which offer a substantial amount of direction), alimony is governed by statutes, namely those contained within Chapter 37 of the Divorce Code, and these statutes offer few concrete answers.
