Am I entitled to alimony?

Pennsylvania's Divorce Code specifies 17 different factors the court must consider when deciding whether a spouse is entitled to alimony, in what amount, and for how long. Because your circumstances and the specific facts of your case will determine your entitlement, you should consult an attorney regarding your right. If you fail to make a claim for alimony before your Divorce Decree is given, you may be barred from the right to make a claim forever.
