Lancaster, PA, Spousal Support Lawyers Viewing Your Case From Every Angle

Spousal support is most typically a factor in long-term marriages where spouses have relied on one another’s income and services to the family for an extended period of time. When this is the case, it is important to establish if alimony is necessary in the situation and how much should be paid. Factors taken into consideration in determining the necessity of temporary, rehabilitative or permanent spousal support payments, include:

  • the length of the marriage
  • the age and health of both parties
  • the lifestyle both parties are accustomed to living
  • the earning capacity of both parties

There are no laws making alimony payments mandatory. There is not a specific formula for determining what amount, if any, should be paid and for how long. This is why it is critically important to have a skilled alimony attorney on your side. Your attorney will carefully analyze the details of your marriage, helping to set reasonable goals regarding seeking spousal maintenance payments or standing strong against the other party’s request for payment.
