Macon Alimony Attorneys
Spouses are not automatically entitled to alimony. While the law protects children by requiring child support in all cases, alimony allocations are much more subjective. In determining whether alimony (also called spousal support) is appropriate, the court will consider a number of factors, including:
- The standard of living the parties have grown accustomed to during the marriage
- Length of the marriage
- Income of each party
- Future earning potential of each party
- Age of each party
- Conduct between parties during the course of the marriage
- Other noneconomic factors (i.e., care of children, support during career, etc.)
