Spousal support and alimony pendente lite (APL) refer to the temporary financial support the dependent spouse receives during the course of the divorce proceedings. This is different from the alimony that a dependent spouse may receive after divorce. There is a set formula for the computation of the amount of spousal support or APL that one should receive based on the relative incomes of each spouse. An experienced family law attorney can help you determine the actual income or earning capacity of each spouse so as to determine the appropriate spousal support or APL.
