How are alimony awards determined?

Alimony, sometimes called spousal support, is a payment made from one former spouse to the other to help balance any economic disadvantage caused by divorce. Traditionally, this meant ex-wives who worked in the home during the marriage would have time to transition to a career outside of the home. However, both men and women now seek alimony.

Divorce has had an evolving history in the United States

Divorce is a common legal issue that affects many Georgia families each year. From households across the state and in every type of neighborhood, individuals decide that it is a better option to live apart than it is to continue to live with their spouses. However, divorce has been viewed differently at different periods of time in the country. While it is now an acceptable option for those who wish to pursue it, it was once a stigmatized practice.
