Financial Support During And After Divorce
Throughout the course of a divorce, one issue that arises time and time again is money. It can be a challenge to continue to pay bills and support a family throughout the divorce process and after. However, help is available. At the Camp Hill office of Cognetti & Associates, our lawyers and staff understand the pressure clients feel when it comes to financial issues in divorce. We evaluate our clients’ situations and involve other professionals whenever necessary to ensure needs are being met.
Spousal Support And Alimony
Though spousal support and alimony are not always an issue in every divorce, knowing how it may affect your case is essential. We take the time to explain how spousal support, alimony and alimony pendente lite are designed to assist a dependent spouse in maintaining the standard of living they had during the marriage until they are on their feet. The amount of money is not calculated by a formula, like child support is, and can vary based upon a wide variety of factors, including length of the marriage, age of the parties, income of both parties and others.
We have a thorough understanding of the Pennsylvania child support guidelines and how they are applied in divorce cases. While the amount of child support is typically calculated using a formula, it is important to note that the amount can be challenged. This means that the amount of child support that is to be paid can potentially be higher or lower than the standard formulaic calculation. However, these deviations are not standard and a judge must decide whether a higher or lower amount is appropriate.
