Greensburg Spousal Support & Alimony Attorney

Spousal Support

Spousal support, like child support is determined in accordance with the Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure. There is a guideline formula that determines the amount of support. This guideline formula is primarily based upon the net earnings of each party. In some cases, the Courts will impute income to a party if it is determined that one party is not earning income up to his or her potential.

Not all divorce cases will have a spousal support order. The incomes of the parties must fall within the guidelines to order the same. Generally, spousal support will start only once a spousal support complaint has been filed. Spousal support continues for the length of the marriage. Spousal support must terminate upon issuance of the Divorce Decree.

Like child support, spousal support is modifiable. As the incomes of the parties change, the support obligation can also be changed. In order to do so, a party must file a Petition to Modify Support.
