Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you do not pay for the education of the children that does not mean she can seek an increase in alimony. Also, if you paid for her education, you can seek to claim reimbursement for that, since your marriage never received the benefit of the education. Alimony is based on her actual needs and your ability to pay, it does not get tied to your obligations to your children, those are separate and the PA court could not order you to pay for college support, without an agreement between the parties, even indirectly by increasing alimony. See: Pa. Cons. Stat. tit. 23, §4327(a).
