Alimony—Guarding your interests
Once all financial issues have been resolved and your divorce is going to be finalized, you may be eligible for alimony or may need to seek defense against alimony. In Pennsylvania, the term alimony refers to payments to the lower-income spouse ordered by the courts after a divorce is finalized. Unlike spousal support, alimony is not determined according to a set of guidelines. Alimony may be awarded depending on your income, assets, and financial needs, as well as your spouse’s income, assets, and financial needs. When a lower-income spouse cannot afford to pay their living expenses, Pennsylvania courts can order spousal support or alimony to help ease the burden. At Graff & Associates, LLC, we understand each case is different, and our attorneys are here to help you seek the support you need or to defend against unnecessary payments.
