If you are considering divorce, call our Pittsburgh lawyers at 412-339-2499 to discuss how spousal support may impact your case.
Factors That Determine Spousal Support Payments
According to Pennsylvania law, the courts must evaluate 17 distinct factors to determine spousal support payments. These factors are primarily based on an individual’s ability to uphold his or her standard of living post-divorce, the nature of the marriage and what each individual contributed throughout marriage. The most significant factors include:
- Each spouse’s education level and earning capacity
- Either spouse’s participation in adultery or marital misconduct
- The length of marriage
- Each spouse’s personal assets and debts
- The family’s established standard of living
- Each spouse’s physical and mental health
Our experienced attorneys can explain the comprehensive list of contributing factors and how they may influence your case. We are experienced negotiators as well as litigators and will assertively protect your best interests to the full extent of the law.
Upholding Living Standards During The Divorce Process
From initial consideration until your divorce is finalized, you may experience financial tension. If your spouse earned your family’s primary income, you may be unable to adequately support yourself during the divorce process.
Beroes Law Center understands your concern, and we can protect your financial well-being by pursuing alimony pendente lite (APL) to cover your expenses. APL is temporary court-ordered spousal support that remains in effect while your divorce is pending. We will carefully evaluate your circumstances and seek maximum coverage to provide financial security and reduce undue stress.
