Spousal Support, Alimony Pendente Lite and Alimony Under Pennsylvania Law Support for Spouse under Pennsylvania Law

Serving Montgomery, Bucks, Chester and Philadelphia counties.

Spousal support, alimony pendente lite (“APL”) and alimony are critical elements in many divorce cases. I will work closely with you on your support issues to reach an amount that is fair in light of the financial circumstances. I represent people in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, and throughout the Greater Philadelphia area.

E-mail me or call me at (610) 275-8587 for more information about how I can assist with the alimony aspect of your divorce case.

I can assist you in the divorce process with the various types of spousal maintenance including:

  • Alimony pendente lite (APL): This is the temporary alimony that is available only if a divorce proceeding is pending.
  • Spousal support: This is the financial support that can be provided to a spouse if there is a separation whether or not a divorce is pending.
  • Alimony: Alimony is actually the financial support for a spouse that commences once the divorce is finalized.

During and after your divorce, you may have questions about the various forms of alimony. As we move forward, I will argue for your positions on spousal support and alimony based on the factors involved in your case.

Even after a divorce is finalized, alimony may be modifiable. I continue to represent my clients as their families and their needs change and modification of agreements and orders becomes necessary because of change in income or any financial circumstances.

Since I began practicing law in 1990, my career has been dedicated solely to matters involving family law. This is the only area of law I practice.
