How Many Years Do You Have to Be Married to Get Alimony in Georgia?
In Georgia, there is no set number of years of marriage required to be eligible for alimony. The decision to award alimony and the amount and duration of payments are determined by a judge based on several factors, including the length of the marriage, each spouse's income and earning capacity, the standard of living during the marriage, and the needs of the spouse seeking support.
The judge will also consider any relevant factors, such as the health and age of each spouse and any marital misconduct or fault. Ultimately, the decision to award alimony is up to the judge's discretion in each individual case.
How Does Alimony Work in Georgia?
Alimony, also known as spousal support, is financial support paid by one spouse to the other after a divorce or during a separation in order to maintain the standard of living to which they are accustomed. Alimony is decided by a judge and can be temporary or permanent. Temporary alimony is paid during the divorce process, and permanent alimony is paid after a divorce is finalized.
When deciding how much alimony to award and for how long, the judge will take several factors into consideration, including:
- The length of the marriage
- Each spouse's earning power and ability to earn an income
- Each spouse's assets and sources of income
- Each spouse's standard of living
- The age of each spouse
- The physical and mental health of each spouse

Much like a family doctor, I strive to become the go-to source for all of my current clients when they have legal needs in the future. I personally prefer to do business with people and companies that I know will be around for months and years to come.
All fees will be reasonable and disclosed to my clients upfront in a clear and understandable manner. I attempt to make legal services available to as many people as practicable by working with clients on payment plans, accepting credit cards, and charging flat fees (as opposed to hourly rates) whenever possible.
While no lawyer can ever guarantee a specific outcome in a given situation, I can assure my clients that they will receive a high-quality legal product delivered in a timely fashion.
I promise to return all communications promptly but in no event later than 24 hours after their transmission. My clients will be kept in the loop through regular case status updates from me and will receive copies of all paperwork related to their case.
