PA Spousal Support Lawyer Protecting Your Best Interests During Divorce

Handling support issues for men in Harrisburg, Carlisle, Gettysburg, New Bloomfield & beyond

There is a lot of new information and lots of legal terminology to understand when you are getting divorced. Spousal support refers to the money paid to a financially dependent spouse after a couple has separated and before an official divorce complaint has been filed. At The Guy’s Attorney, our experienced Pennsylvania spousal maintenance attorneys practice in Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties, and we are specifically committed to providing outstanding legal counsel to men. We’re also committed to clearly explaining the different types of spousal support you may be entitled to or expect to pay. Throughout the entire divorce process, The Guy’s Attorney is on your side.

Helping husbands understand spousal support guidelines

Pennsylvania law provides for three different types of support: spousal support, alimony pendente lite and alimony. The amount of spousal support is determined using mandatory guidelines, but several factors are taken into consideration before support is granted or denied. In South Central PA and Harrisburg, our fathers’ rights spousal support lawyers work with divorcing husbands to outline such considerations as:

  • Separated spouses living in the same residence
  • Entitlement defense against paying support
  • Prenuptial agreement
  • Length of the marriage
  • Marital misconduct leading to the divorce

Spousal support can be granted to either spouse, depending on which of you has the greater income or assets. With more than 25 years of experience handling divorce and support claims, we give you an honest assessment of your situation and ensure that you have the information you need to be make the best decisions before agreeing to any settlement.
