Montgomery County Spousal Support Lawyers
Experienced Counsel to Advocate for Your Spousal Rights After Separation
Spousal support and APL refer to the temporary financial support the dependent spouse receives during the course of the divorce proceedings. This is different from the alimony that a dependent spouse may receive after divorce. There is a set formula for the computation of the amount of spousal support or alimony pendente lite (APL) that one spouse should receive based on the relative incomes of each party. An experienced family law attorney can help you determine the actual income or earning capacity of each spouse to determine the appropriate spousal support or APL.
Determining a spouse's actual income and earning capacity is the most crucial and important factor in determining what the spousal support or APL should be. An experienced spousal support lawyer can help you determine these figures for each spouse to estimate the potential spousal support or APL.
