Savannah Spousal Support Attorney

Is There a Difference Between Spousal Support & Alimony?

At The Law Offices of Robert F. Pirkle, we understand that the end of a marriage can be a difficult and emotional time. In addition to the emotional upheaval, there are often financial concerns that need to be addressed, including spousal maintenance. Our experienced family law attorney is here to help you navigate this process and ensure that your rights are protected.

In Savannah, GA, the terms 'alimony' and 'spousal support' are often used interchangeably, and in practice, they refer to the same concept - the financial support one spouse provides to the other following a divorce. The primary purpose of alimony/spousal support is to minimize any unfair financial impacts one spouse may face as a result of the divorce, ensuring that both parties can maintain a similar standard of living to that which they were accustomed during the marriage.

However, it's important to note that the determination of alimony and its amount is highly dependent on specific factors such as the length of the marriage, the financial condition of both parties, and the contribution of each spouse to the marriage.

Our firm is dedicated to helping you through this difficult time, call us at (912) 493-9506 to schedule a consultation.
