How Is Spousal Support Calculated?

Spousal support, like many other aspects of divorce, is a complex subject. In the state of Georgia, not every person who gets divorced is eligible for spousal support payments. Instead, the judge takes into consideration a wide range of factors to determine if it will be awarded at all, for how long, and for how much. This is assuming that you and your spouse cannot come to a decision on your own.

We strive to gather sufficient information to provide the judge with a clear picture of why you deserve child support, such as that you were the homemaker for years or that you had a lesser earning capacity.

A few factors which may be considered in a spousal support case include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Earning capacity of each spouse
  • Income of each spouse
  • Quality of living established

Enforcement for Non-Payment of Spousal Support

Many times, the spouse who is awarded spousal support receives their payments like clockwork. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When anyone ignores the divorce order which requires them to pay spousal support, steps can be taken to enforce the order. Whether it is outright failure to pay or habitual lateness, we can help you seek payment from your ex-spouse.
