spousal support
      10/10/10 06:02 PM

My husband and I separated after 18 years of marriage in March 2010 (Pennsylvania). Our children are 13 and 16 yrs of age. After two custody hearings (filed by him), I was awarded primary physical custody. Because he was very sporadic with any kind of financial support, I filed for child support in September. The hearing was October 4, and apparently my husband and his atty decided to reduce the amount of any child support by filing for spousal support on the spot! I do have an atty., but chose to represent myself at the child support hearing. Saturday I received notice a decision was made on October 7 that I was to be given 799.00/mos child support, but because spousal support was awarded simultaneously (552.00/mos) I will be only receiving 247.00/mos. to support two children! I am a nurse, my husband is self-employed and does not report his true earnings. I provide the medical, dental, and eye coverage for my children. Two months after our separation, he had moved in with his girlfriend. Only three weeks ago he has now moved in with his sister and is apparently staying there rent/utility free. My question is this: Is there no formal process of notification of your spouse having filed for spousal support? (As there was when I requested child support) Is there no hearing to determine a true need for spousal support? He is being awarded an amount based on under reported earnings....Is there anything I can do short of hiring a forensic accountant? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
