Alimony & Spousal Support Lawyer
Alimony, or spousal support, is designed to be a form of spousal maintenance. Unfortunately, it is often misunderstood and largely subjective in the state of Georgia. Not only is it misinterpreted as a legal punishment after divorce, but the Georgia state law does not have well-defined and regulated methods for calculating the amount of temporary or permanent alimony to be paid. For these reasons, clients involved in spousal support need an experienced family law attorney on their side. At Boudreaux Law Firm, we have an exceptionally qualified Alimony Lawyer who is ready to fight for you in Augusta.
There are numerous factors that can be considered in determining the amount of awarded alimony, ranging from the duration of the marriage to the financial resources, age and physical condition of each party. Ultimately, long-term alimony is guided by the specific needs of a spouse and the other spouse's ability to pay. At Boudreaux Law Firm, we closely examine all relevant factors to your unique case so that the correct monetary payments to or from your ex-spouse are put in place. Alimony should facilitate a basic standard of living for the lower-earning spouse and help them move forward after a divorce.
