Marietta Based Metro Atlanta and Savannah Alimony Lawyer

Determining alimony in a divorce settlement can often be tricky, not only because parties are commonly in disagreement about the amount paid and received, but also because of the lack of legal guidelines for determining alimony altogether in Georgia.

Contrasted against the lengthy, complicated and extremely intricate method of determining child support — which the Georgia legislature wanted to resolve to the penny — alimony is the polar opposite.

At The Manely Firm, P.C., we recognize the obstacles you face when you are trying to establish a reasonable alimony agreement in your divorce, and we are prepared to help you protect your rights and ensure that the outcome is, indeed, fair.

Helping You Achieve Fair Results in Your Georgia Alimony Agreement

The opportunity for alimony is found in a one-paragraph statute that essentially says that alimony is based upon one party's need and the other party's ability to pay. That's it. The issue then is, how is such a loose statute applied?

Courts and juries have strong attitudes about alimony and most of them are largely immutable. Those attitudes are based on a number of factors that are common sense, as you would hope a legal decision would be.

With extensive knowledge of Georgia divorce laws, our Atlanta alimony attorneys are equipped to help you achieve a favorable outcome in the determination of alimony in your divorce proceedings. Our team of lawyers has helped individuals aggressively work toward and defend against alimony payment claims in Georgia courts.

Alimony is awarded based on the needs of the party who is requesting payment, as well as the ability the other party has to pay. We will make sure that your side is heard in court, and that the judge takes into consideration those important factors in your case, including the income levels, the length of your marriage, the standard of living during your marriage, etc.
