What Factors Affect Alimony?
- There are many things that are considered for spousal support:
- How long the spouses were married
- The earning capacity of each spouse
- The debts and assets of each spouse
- Standard of living during the marriage
- Necessary time to find a job
- Physical and emotional conditions
- Sacrifices made during the marriage
- The age of both spouses
Forms of Alimony in Georgia
One of the unique things pertaining to alimony in Georgia is that it can be awarded in typically in two distinct forms. The first is the permanent status of alimony, where one spouse pays the other a specific amount in intervals because the other spouse is unable to support themselves. The other form of alimony is rehabilitative. This is more common and it is awarded to help the other spouse while they pursue education or employment.
It is also important to note that alimony is not necessarily set in stone. It is actually very common for one spouse to appeal to the court for a modification of the spousal support agreement.
