Whether contested or uncontested, every divorce case needs to resolve four main issues:
- Property division, particularly with high-asset couples.
- Custody of the child or children, including visitation or parenting plans.
- Child support payments.
- Spousal support payments.
Child support is largely determined by child custody and parental income, and follows a rather rigid formula in Georgia. Spousal support is another matter entirely. The court has wide discretion, within certain statutory limits, to determine spousal support issues, and our lawyers can advise you regarding how the facts of your case are likely to influence the court’s thinking. The court may, for example, award additional marital property or title to the family home as alimony in a lump sum instead of granting monthly spousal support.
