Atlanta Alimony Attorney

Ready to Help You Fight for Fair Spousal Support

Alimony is no longer an automatic part of the divorce settlement. However, it may still be awarded on a temporary or permanent basis for the support of either spouse. Spousal support can include cash or property, payable in a lump sum at the time of the divorce, or over a set period of time.

The Atlanta spousal support attorneys at Warner Bates are experienced in all types of family law cases. We have been handling cases involving Georgia divorce and family law for more than 40 years. Our firm is rare in that we focus exclusively on family law cases. We can answer your questions about spousal support and represent you effectively in order to ensure that you are protected.

Reach out to our firm at (770) 766-8148 today to set up a consultation.

Will Alimony Be a Factor in My Divorce Settlement?

  • Relevant factors that determine whether alimony is awarded in a Georgia divorce settlement include:
  • The length of the marriage
  • The age and health of the divorcing parties
  • The financial resources and earning capacity of the parties

The courts also look at the standard of living set during the marriage and the time required for either party to acquire sufficient education or training to enable full employment, among other considerations. Alimony is not always granted as part of the divorce settlement. Your attorney can help you achieve the results for which you are looking. Rely on Warner Bates for professional, experienced advocacy.

How Is Alimony Amount Determined?

When awarded, the amount of alimony is set at the discretion of the judge or jury. For this reason, the skill and experience of your Atlanta alimony attorney plays a large role in the final outcome. The financial value of alimony is especially meaningful in divorces involving high incomes or significant assets.

Warner Bates attorneys lead the legal profession in experience and knowledge of alimony matters. Our many years representing divorcing clients and our extensive litigation experience create a significant advantage for clients who are seeking alimony and for those who are ordered to pay it. We are here to serve you and to represent you with excellence.
