When spouses separate, the spouse with lower income has the right to request spousal support (or alimony while litigation is pending). Pennsylvania has a formula to calculate this amount. The formula can take into consideration several factors, including income, expenses, tax filing status, and other child support obligations. This process can be complex when there are multiple sources of income and unusual expenses. This process is further complicated by the new changes in Pennsylvania which took effect January 1, 2019.
