What is Alimony?

Common issues/questions that comes up in most if not almost all divorces are whether an individual will have to pay his or her soon-to-be former spouse alimony/support or whether an individual will receive alimony/support from his or her soon-to-be former spouse. If the answer to either question is yes, the immediate follow-up questions are how much alimony/support will be paid and for how long will the alimony/support have to be paid. There is not a simple answer to any of these questions as alimony/support in Pennsylvania is dependent on the specific circumstances of each divorce case.

How uncontested divorce works in Pennsylvania

You or your spouse are ready to end your marriage. You do not want to fight things out in a Pennsylvania court. You both have already agreed on how you will divide assets and -- if applicable -- how you will split time with your children. This leaves you wondering if you have to go through the typical divorce process. Thankfully, the answer is no.
