Spousal Support Attorney Serving The Auburn Area

When a marriage ends in divorce, it is sometimes appropriate for one spouse to provide financial assistance to the other, in the form of alimony (often called spousal support or spousal maintenance). If you are seeking alimony or your spouse is seeking it from you, it is important to consult with an attorney who is knowledgeable in Alabama divorce law.

At Beverlye Brady and Associates, we have significant experience dealing with alimony and advising our clients about the same.

How Is Alimony Determined?

In Alabama, alimony is typically awarded with one spouse making periodic payments to the other. In some cases, a lump sum payment is awarded.

Alimony is more likely to be awarded after long-term marriages in which one spouse was the primary breadwinner and one supported the household. Factors that may influence the amount and duration of alimony include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The age and health of each spouse
  • The earning potential of each spouse
  • The cause of the divorce
  • The standard of living during the marriage

Our alimony lawyers can help you understand your rights under Alabama divorce laws.
