How Does Alimony Work In Georgia?
Alimony, also known as spousal support, is sometimes an important factor in a divorce. It can also be a point of contention between both parties. The financial status of both spouses and each individual’s need and ability to pay are taken into consideration when determining an award for spousal support.
Contrary to popular belief, alimony is not granted due to the infidelity or poor treatment of the other spouse. It is simply a financial tool used to support an individual who was previously supported by his or her former spouse’s income.
