Secure The Resources You Need To Get Through Your Divorce

If you’re facing a divorce and your soon-to-be ex-spouse is the primary breadwinner between the two of you, you are likely counting on receiving either child support or spousal alimony to help you move forward after your divorce. But what about during the divorce process? There is a way to receive supplemental income during your divorce process, and you may qualify for it.

Here in Lehighton, you can find the office of Rapa Law Office, P.C., a team of Pennsylvania attorneys who are dedicated to seeing that you receive your best possible outcome during serious situations in your life, such as divorce. If you need income to help you through your divorce, you may qualify for alimony pendente lite (APL). We want to help you understand what APL is and whether you qualify.

How You Can Earn Alimony Pendente Lite

Here in Pennsylvania, spouses can apply for APL if they need financial assistance from their spouse during the divorce. While this may seem like alimony, APL is only for the duration of the divorce, not after. If you wind up earning spousal support, that begins at the same time APL ends.

Unlike spousal support, APL is not granted automatically if your spouse cheated in your marriage or was abusive. It is granted solely on the relevant facts, and you need your attorney to present your best possible case for it. We can help you pursue APL by filling out the claim in the proper manner so you can secure your well-being and your future.
