How is spousal support/alimony pendente lite/alimony calculated?

If there are no children involved, spousal support/alimony pendente lite/alimony is generally calculated in Pennsylvania by multiplying the difference in net incomes between the parties by .4 (40%). If children are involved then the formula is generally (the payor’s net income - the payee’s net income - child support) x .3 (30%). The amount of support, however, can be greatly affected by other relevant expenses, the custody situation, and other pertinent factors.
