SPOUSAL SUPPORT AND ALIMONY ATTORNEYS IN WEST CHESTER, PA
If you are divorcing or contemplating divorce, you will likely have a lot of questions about spousal support and alimony. In Pennsylvania, both spousal support and alimony are payments made to a financially dependent spouse, but they refer to payments made at different times. Spousal support payments are made to the financially dependent spouse before the divorce is final; if alimony is granted, it begins once the parties are divorced and continues for a period of time that will vary in each case depending on the circumstances.
You may be wondering if you are entitled to spousal support and if so, how much? If you can get alimony, how much and for how long? Or, you might be wondering if you will have to pay spousal support or alimony to your spouse. You might also wonder what would happen if you lose or quit your job or can no longer work after you are divorced. You may have heard about something called “imputed income” and wonder what that means and if it will apply to you.
