Interim Support / Alimony Pendente Lite

Home > Practice Areas > Support > Interim Support / Alimony Pendente Lite

Financial uncertainty can be one of the more difficult consequences of separating from your spouse.  For a financially dependent party, uncertainty of how to meet your needs naturally arise. For a paying party, you likely have concerns over what your financial exposure could be.

Pennsylvania has a statutory framework for support during the period of separation prior to the finalization of divorce.  Depending on whether a divorce is pending, this interim support is referred to as spousal support or alimony pendente lite.

At Gentile, Horoho & Avalli, our family law attorneys have extensive experience in navigating interim support issues.  We’ll help you address the tough financial questions which go along with living in two households during divorce proceedings.
