A Fair Shake On Alimony

Spousal support, or alimony, is a financial support obligation that provides assistance from one spouse to another after a divorce. It is not appropriate in all divorces. But where it is appropriate, it is important to ensure that any award of alimony is justified and fits the situation.

Alimony can be a contentious issue. Those who are forced to pay it rarely believe that decision is a fair one. Our extensive experience allows us to ensure that when the court is considering awarding alimony, it does so only after hearing all of the facts.

A variety of factors impact a court's decisions regarding alimony. They include:

  • Need
  • Ability to pay
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Standard of living established during the marriage
  • Age
  • Physical condition
  • Emotional condition
  • Financial resources
  • Contributions to the marriage
  • Employability (time required to acquire skills necessary to be appropriately employable)

Was Adultery Part Of Your Divorce?

Georgia family courts will generally award alimony unless there is evidence of adultery. If adultery has been a part of what led to your divorce, it can preclude any awarding of alimony.
