Alimony, also referred to as spousal support, can be awarded to either party in a divorce. Unlike child support, alimony is not a right in the State of Georgia. Courts will take a number of factors into consideration when determining whether a party will receive alimony. An attorney at The Smith Williams Law Firm can further discuss with you those factors the courts consider. Call our office at (678) 324-7600 today, if you are seeking or opposing alimony in your divorce.
