Does one spouse have to Support the Other Person?

Maybe. Attorney can advise on specific financial situation. Spouses living separately may also be responsible for the necessities of the other. The concept of spousal support (support during separation) or alimony (payments after the divoce is finalized) is similar to child support, except that the spouse with the ability to pay may challenge the right of the other spouse to get financial assistance. To receive this type of support a person must file a petition for spousal support and/or child support. 23 Pa.C.S.A. § 3701
