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.
Alimony is very possibly the most disliked aspect of a divorce, and that's saying something. Alimony is a payment made by one spouse to support the other for a set amount of time. This payment can be monthly, annual, or a single lump sum. It's less common these days since more married couples are dual-income than not, but it still matters during plenty of divorces.
