Spousal Support/Alimony Pendente Lite/Alimony

At Haller & Imbarlina, P.C., we skillfully negotiate to protect the financial security and well-being of your family following separation or divorce. Our experienced support attorneys will talk with you to understand your financial needs and educate you on the support guidelines used by the courts.

In Pennsylvania, spousal support is awarded to a financially dependent spouse in the period between separation and before the divorce complaint is filed. Once the divorce complaint is filed, a support order may be entered for alimony pendente lite (APL) which is support during the pendency of litigation. Alimony may be awarded after a final decree is issued for the support and maintenance of the dependent spouse.

A number of circumstances can be determining factors when calculating alimony; for example, when one spouse suffers from physical or mental disability, when there is a large difference between spousal incomes or in the case of one parent primarily caring for minor children. Our family lawyers can provide you with the amount that you can expect in support after reviewing your situation based on the factors outlined in the Divorce Code.
