How eligibilty is determined
There are no set guidelines for determining eligibility for alimony, whether you are seeking alimony or being asked to pay spousal support. Since amount and duration are negotiable, you need the expertise of a Douglasville alimony attorney to obtain the best possible settlement for your particular situation. The first determination to be made is entitlement. Age, health, and earnings of each spouse will be considered, as well as the number of years our client was married. Established standard of living and future capacity to make a living, dependent children, their ages, and needs are also factors as is past behavior for both spouses that will weigh for or against your favor.
