Chambers Family Law

Alimony is determined on a case-by-case basis in Georgia. Fault, such as adultery, can be used as a factor in determining alimony as well as custody cases. Factors that influence the amount of alimony awarded will include the significant income disparity between parties and whether one of the parties has been out of the workforce for a significant period of time as well as other factors. The alimony granted to either party will fall into one of the following categories:

  • Bridge the gap: may not exceed 2 years
  • Rehabilitative alimony: to reestablish skills or acquire new ones
  • Durational alimony: economic assistance for a set period of time (no longer than the length of the marriage) following a marriage of short or moderate duration; or
  • Permanent alimony: may be awarded to provide for the needs and necessities of life as they were established during the marriage of the parties for a party who lacks the financial ability to meet his or her needs and necessities of life following the dissolution of marriage
