Will I Receive Alimony Payments?

Many couples seeking a dissolution make the mistake of believing that every single divorce or separation will call for alimony. Unlike child support, which is a "given" in divorce cases, alimony is much more dependent on the specifics of each case. Assuming you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement on your own, the judge overseeing your case will determine if alimony is appropriate, in what amount, and for how long. The process which is used to calculate or determine alimony is much different than the one used for child support.

When the court ponders alimony, the following factors may be considered:

  • How long the marriage lasted
  • Each party's income status
  • The age of each party
  • Any marital misconduct
  • Decisions regarding child custody
  • What property each party received
  • Standard of living
  • Each party's employment status
  • Each party's ability to obtain employment

Types of Alimony & Modifying Alimony in Marietta

There are multiple types of alimony which may be awarded, depending on the circumstances of the marriage and the divorce. Alimony may be rehabilitative or permanent and may be given on a short-term basis in some cases. There may also be certain parameters in place for the termination of alimony, such as remarriage or a change in income. Fortunately, our firm can help you to petition for a modification or termination after the agreement is in place, if necessary.
