Ins and outs of alimony in Georgia

The divorce process includes various aspects, including possible child custody arrangements or spousal support. This support, or alimony, may result from an agreement between former spouses or a court decision. Alimony is meant to assist the spouse who either did not make an income or made a noticeably smaller income than the other. Georgia couples working through a divorce may need to create an agreement regarding spousal support.

Are Georgia residents shocked that Eastwood's wife wants alimony?

Marriage is usually something that brings happiness to the bride and groom. After the wedding, though, things sometimes change. People don't stay the same year after year, and when people change, divorce may be what is best. Recently, Georgia residents may have read that, after several years of marriage, the Eastwoods are finally getting divorced and alimony is being requested.

Alimony and spousal support tips for divorcing men

When it comes to divorce advice, the vast majority of information available in print or online seems to be geared toward advising women on how to move through the process of ending their marriage. Very little is written explicitly for men who are facing divorce, leaving many to interpret more general guidance for use in their own divorce scenarios. One recently published piece speaks directly to men in Georgia and across the nation who are approaching a divorce, and gives a wealth of advice on alimony, as well as how to come to terms with this significant life event.

What does 'equitable distribution' mean in a Georgia divorce?

Mind you, "equitable" is not "equal" in a Georgia divorce. When it comes to property division, a court in Georgia will keep separate property out of the category of marital property, and a 50-50 split is not a foregone conclusion. Separate property might include a bank account in only one spouse's name, or inheritance received by only one spouse.
