Newtown Spousal Support Attorney
Spousal support is when a certain amount of money is regularly paid to a person as determined by a family court during the divorce and separation process. The spousal support referred to as alimony is given to the person with less or no income or potential income of the time of the divorce.

What Kind of Alimony Can I Expect?
Depending on your case, the amount of spousal support can vary from case to case. Certain factors that are often included in a spousal support determination include length of marriage, age and health, need for support, standard of living while in the marriage, length of time out of work, property holding, parental responsibilities and other factors that the court deems relevant to making a decision.
Many cases of spousal support can change over time depending on the circumstances. There are many laws in Pennsylvania that allow the amount or frequency of support to change. Every request must provide proof that some element exists now that did not exist at the time of the divorce. Some reasons can include employment, health-related reasons, and others.
