Norcross Alimony Attorneys
When you are facing the financial insecurity that often accompanies getting a divorce, our family law attorneys are here to help you get what you are entitled to in your divorce settlement.
At Zimmerman & Associates , we know that going through a divorce is an emotional and stressful time in your life. Faced with major changes, one of the biggest concerns clients often have is making the adjustment to living on just one income. This is especially true in situations in which you may have counted on your spouse’s earnings to supplement your own. As experienced Norcross alimony attorneys, we help clients in these situations rebuild their lives by getting them the spousal support they need.
In any divorce case, financial matters are a major concern. Even if you and your spouse are on amicable terms, there may still be disputes over money and property that must be resolved before your divorce can be finalized. While you are entitled to a portion of all marital assets, this may not be enough to support yourself on your own. In these situations, our Norcross alimony attorneys are here to help.
Under Title 19, Chapter 6, Article 1 of the Georgia Code , you may be entitled to alimony or spousal support either on a temporary basis, to help you get back on your feet, or as a part of your permanent divorce settlements. Factors the judge is likely to consider in awarding alimony in your divorce include:
● The standard of living during the marriage;
● The length of the marriage;
● The age and health of each spouse;
● Each partner’s income and earning potential;
● The amount of individual assets each one owns;
● Whether one of the spouses may have sacrificed a career or education in support of the other or to raise children of the marriage.
Marital misconduct may also be a factor in awarding alimony, such as if your spouse squandered assets during the course of an affair or as a result of an alcohol, drug, or gambling addiction.
At Zimmerman & Associates, we provide professional legal representation to protect your rights throughout your divorce case. Depending on the circumstances, this may include seeking an order for alimony as part of your divorce proceedings in the Gwinnett County Superior Court . Alimony may be in order in the following situations:
● To help you get the education or skills you need to reenter the workforce;
● To assist you in re-establishing yourself in your career;
● To help you through the initial financial adjustment of living on one income;
● To ensure you maintain the manner of living you enjoyed during the marriage.
At Zimmerman & Associates, we are dedicated to protecting you throughout your divorce proceedings, ensuring that you get the maximum amount you are entitled to in any resulting settlements or court orders.
