Our alimony lawyers know that there are many factors that go into the calculation of court-ordered provision for a spouse. In fact, this calculation determines how much alimony one spouse will be paying to the other. Furthermore, an alimony award is based, in part, on one party’s need for support and the other party’s ability to pay support.

How the State of Georgia Determines Alimony

The goal of alimony is to give a dependent spouse the financial support they need to enjoy a lifestyle approximate to the one they had during the marriage. To determine this, the court examines a wide scope of different factors that were present during the marriage or will be present after the marriage is dissolved.

Considerations that court addresses when making an alimony decision include:

  • The established standard of living, length of the marriage
  • Health of the parties
  • Distribution of marital property and/or marital debt
  • Separate property
  • Debt structure
  • Tax issues
  • Child support to pay or to receive

Alimony in Atlanta, Georgia is rarely intended to be permanent. Rather, it is a bridge to self-sufficiency. In addition, the court may grant spousal support as a lump sum or in periodic payments.
