Written on behalf of Daniel H. Chambers Attorney at Law, P .C.
Alimony (or spousal maintenance) is awarded in a divorce where the marriage has gone on for a number of years and when one of the spouses contributed significantly more to the overall household income. The amount of alimony that is awarded depends on a complete assessment of a bunch of factors.
There are no specific method courts are expected to use to assess the various factors that influence an alimony award. Alabama courts are empowered to use their own judgment when reviewing the factors based on the circumstances for each case.
An experienced alimony attorney understands that an alimony award will be affected by these factors and the circumstances of the case. They should be able to construct a persuasive argument in your favor.
