Understanding Spousal Support In Georgia

Understanding Spousal Support In Georgia

Husbands and wives may offer different kinds of support over the course of a marriage; while one may provide money, the other can manage the home and family. When divorce enters the equation, alimony is utilized in order to provide for a spouse who may not have the earning capacity to support himself or herself financially. To ensure that you are getting a fair deal in your alimony order, consult with our Alpharetta alimony lawyer today.

At Faulhaber Family Law, LLC, we represent clients in divorce and other family law matters. Whether you are seeking spousal support payments or you are being asked to pay alimony, we can provide you with appropriate advice, effective investigative techniques and representation tailored to your specific needs.

We want to assist our clients in understanding the legal process. Attorney Tamar Faulhaber will explain to you in plain terms what is happening throughout the life of your case. A focus on communication is just one of the many reasons to consult us today.

Providing Knowledgeable Counsel To Clients In Spousal Support Cases

There are very specific conditions about when alimony is available in Georgia. It is important that you understand these, as well as other criteria that may be in play. Some factors that are considered when deciding alimony orders include:

  • The contribution of each spouse to the acquisition of the marital property
  • The role of each spouse in maintaining the family home and care of children
  • The length of the marriage
  • The financial resources of each spouse during and after marriage
  • The age of each spouse
  • The health of each spouse, both physical and emotional
  • The earning capacity of each spouse
  • The financial liabilities of each spouse
  • The standard of living enjoyed by the spouses during marriage
  • The time necessary for the recipient spouse to train and enter the workforce

There are certain negative actions that can occur during a marriage, such as adultery, which can prevent a party from receiving alimony. Any such issues that are known when you sit down with us should be discussed. Attorney Faulhaber provides absolute confidentiality to her clients, allowing all aspects of their marriage to be chronicled without fear that they will become public. We often help our clients begin the process of gaining back their self-esteem.
