In Pennsylvania, alimony is considered as a “secondary remedy” after the division of the marital assets, or equitable distribution. Once the court has divided the marital assets, it must decide if alimony is appropriate. There is no formula for the amount of or duration of alimony. Alimony claims are decided on a case by case basis. The Pennsylvania Divorce Code lists 17 factors the court may consider in determining if alimony is appropriate.
