Understanding Alimony In Georgia

  • Temporary alimony: Spousal support awarded to the lower or non earning spouse during the period when the divorce is pending. A hearing may be required in these cases.
  • Rehabilitative alimony: Maintenance awarded to the lower or non earning spouse for a set period of time to help her or him transition to a self-supporting status after the divorce. This may be used for education and job training.
  • Permanent alimony: This type of alimony is a permanent, lifetime financial award to the lower or non earning spouse.
  • Alimony considerations for high net worth divorce: If an affluent married couple enjoyed a luxury lifestyle, a judge may order a higher level of spousal support to ensure that both parties maintain their positions post-divorce.

Protecting Your Financial Position

When a divorcing couple cannot agree on spousal maintenance, a judge will need to make the ruling. Understanding that the court will consider a number of factors when awarding alimony, we work diligently to create solid legal arguments for each point. We are well-known for our detailed discovery tactics and analysis of relevant evidence.

Our firm prepares to support your alimony goals by addressing:

  • Length of marriage
  • Age of each spouse
  • Income of each party
  • The ability of each spouse to earn a future income
  • Standard of living within the marriage
  • Adultery
