A Dedicated & Personal Approach To Spousal Support & Alimony

The Atlanta based attorneys at Burney & Reese understand that the pursuit of spousal support and alimony is very a delicate and personal matter. There are several factors that a Court considers when determining if an award of alimony & spousal support is appropriate, and if so, how much. Those factors are as follows:

  1. The duration of the marriage;
  2. The standard of living established during the marriage;
  3. The age and the physical and emotional condition of both parties;
  4. The financial resources of each party;
  5. Where applicable, the time necessary for either party to acquire sufficient education or training to enable him to find appropriate employment;
  6. The contribution of each party to the marriage, including, but not limited to, services rendered in homemaking, child care, education, and career building of the other party;
  7. The condition of the parties, including the separate estate, earning capacity, and fixed liabilities of the parties; and
  8. Such other relevant factors as the court deems equitable and proper.
