Factors That Determine Alimony In Pennsylvania

Unlike child support cases, alimony or spousal support is not determined with the use of a strict formula. Rather, factors such as the following influence the expected level of support to be received or paid:

  • The present earnings and the earning capacities of both parties.
  • The ages and the physical, mental and emotional conditions of the parties.
  • The sources of income of both parties, including medical, retirement, insurance or other benefits.
  • Any expectancies and inheritances.
  • The length of the marriage.
  • The standard of living established in the marriage.
  • The education and/or degrees of each party.
  • Assets, liabilities and property in the marriage or owned individually.
  • Relative needs of the parties.
  • Marital misconduct and other factors.
  • The contribution of one party to the other party’s education, training or increased earning power.

An experienced, skilled attorney can help tip the balance in your favor and protect you from imbalanced estimations or unjustified pressure from your spouse.
