Alimony In Pennsylvania

Alimony payments are financial payments to a spouse after a divorce. They are legally mandated. In Pennsylvania, you are not entitled to receive alimony. Alimony payments are completely discretionary with the court. If you are going through a divorce, here are some common questions you may have regarding alimony in Pennsylvania.

Equitable Distribution During A Pennsylvania Divorce

When imagining divorce, many people assume that the spouses split everything equally, 50/50. However, in Pennsylvania, this is not the case. Pennsylvania recognizes equitable distribution, which gives the courts the power to distribute the assets and property of a marriage as they see fit.

Divorce With Dignity

A divorce can be a trying time for you and your former spouse. It's already a sad and hurtful time, but it's even worse considering that during divorce hearings, information may come to light that is difficult to hear. However, it's important to remain mature, civil, and respectful. According to psychologist Susan Quilliam, "Dignity is our best friend in a crisis because it reminds us that, although we may be at the mercy of uncertain circumstances, we can at least be in control of ourselves." Consider these tips to help navigate through your divorce with dignity.
