Alpharetta Alimony Attorney

Determining Spousal Support in Georgia

Under O.C.G.A. § 19-6-4, spousal support or alimony may be allotted in a divorce case in order to help ease spouse's transition from married life into independence. This is particularly true in cases where the husband or wife served a "stay at home" role while the other was the main income-earner. While the laws concerning alimony have designed it to serve a temporary and rehabilitative role, in some rare cases the court may award one spouse permanent support.

At Oles Law Group, our Alpharetta divorce attorney helps clients resolve legal difficulties and fight for a fair alimony agreement. Even if a couple has decided to end a marriage, they both deserve a chance at a fulfilling future. Let us help you protect your family’s best interests.

The Likelihood of Alimony Awards in Your Case

Ultimately, the decision of whether alimony payments are made in your divorce is up to judge that is handling your case. Generally, alimony is very subjective in nature; because there is no clear and easily accessible test or process for determining the most perfect and fair alimony payment, it is vital that your interests and your needs are clearly presented in court.

Some of the factors that your judge may consider include:

  • Your age and your spouse's age
  • How long you have been married
  • Your physical condition and that of your spouse
  • Your emotional state and that of your spouse
  • The earning capacity of both you and your spouse
  • Any accusations of domestic violence
  • Your income and your spouse's income
  • Standard of living each spouse maintained during the marriage

The decision of alimony in your divorce settlement may depend on the reason why your divorce was filed. In Georgia, alimony may even be prohibited in certain situations. A number of different state laws may come into play for a divorce and turn the process into a complicated legal mess. Whether you’re paying alimony or receiving support payments, ensure that your financial future is secure.
