How long will I be entitled to support?

In Pennsylvania, a child support obligation will continue until the child reaches the age of 18 or graduates from high school, whichever occurs last.  Spousal support or alimony has no set timeline, the length of the award depends on the circumstances of the case and and analysis of the factors a court must consider in fashioning the award.  The length of the parties' marriage will generally dictate the length of the alimony award, although there are exceptions. With an issue as dependent on individual circumstances as this, it is best to consult counsel about what you can expect.
