Alimony is also known as spousal support, and consists of financial payments from one spouse to the other after a divorce occurs. Alimony laws are in place to make sure that a divorce is economically fair, and that both parties are able to adequately support themselves following the proceedings.
Because the circumstances and financial issues surrounding each divorce vary widely, courts have the option to grant a variety of alimony payment types, including periodic payments, one lump-sum payment, temporary payments, and rarely, permanent payments. Both parties involved in the marriage may be eligible for spousal support or, if neither requires financial assistance, neither may be eligible.
The following factors may be taken into consideration by courts when determining alimony:
If you have questions about whether you will be required to pay or will be expected to receive alimony, speak with one of our Savannah divorce lawyers. Each situation is different, so have us review the unique details of your matter and explain your matter in detail.
Unlike many states, Georgia allows courts to take into consideration factors leading to the breakdown of the marriage, such as adultery, when making decisions regarding spousal support. Because of this, it is always helpful to consult a Savannah divorce attorney during your divorce proceedings. Our family law team can personally guide you through negotiations and advocate for your interests, even taking a case to trial if necessary.
