Alimony

Determining alimony is a very precarious part of the divorce, as parties are frequently in disagreement about how much should be paid and received. On top of that, Georgia law is relatively antiquated and ambiguous when it comes to the matter of alimony. For these reasons, it is imperative that you find an experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney. At Bell & Washington, we understand the obstacles you run into when attempting to reach equitable alimony figures in your divorce. With more than 50 years of combined experience, we are accomplished and experienced family law attorneys ready and willing to take care of your alimony dispute.

Georgia law enumerates the concept of alimony in a single-paragraph statute stating that alimony is based upon one party’s need and the other’s ability to pay. That is the extent of the written law. Facing such ambiguous and brusque terms, the team of attorneys at Bell & Washington will skillfully navigate your case, making sure the judge takes into consideration the elements necessary to fully hear your side in court. Our team has an established track record of aggressively defending against, and presenting for, alimony disputes in Georgia courts.

There are no fees or obligations for an initial consultation and we would be delighted to speak with and assist you. Call us today at 404.437.6641 for a free consultation.
