Birmingham Spousal Support/Alimony Attorney
The Experience You Need on Your Side
Many people know about child support following a divorce, but not as many are familiar with the term “alimony”, which refers to the monetary support one divorced spouse might offer another to help them stabilize until they can provide for themselves.
Usually after a divorce, two separated parties do not want to have continual contact with each other. However, if there have been difficult circumstances that prevent one person from providing for themselves immediately following a divorce, Alabama courts may sometimes grant alimony until the individual is able to get a regular income on their own.
These circumstances can rapidly become very complicated and tense when one person gets remarried, or the alimony donor loses their job and is unable to afford alimony anymore. Whatever your situation is, get in touch with our devoted Birmingham spousal support lawyers for detailed legal counsel. The Law Office of Brad J. Latta is ready to vigorously protect your rights following a divorce.

How Amounts for Alimony are Determined in Alabama
No divorce situation is exactly alike, so it is difficult to know how much an individual will be rewarded for alimony. The way that alimony support is determined is that the court will closely examine several elements about your case. First, you will need to show why you need financial support, and how much, within in reason, would help your situation. Moreover, it will also have to be determined how much your former spouse can contribute.
Some of the common factors that the court will examine to determine alimony amounts include:
- The length of the couple’s marriage
- The current wages and salary, or lack thereof, for each individual
- The age and current health of each party
- Any forms of property or assets shared by the two parties
- The level of education of each person

Trust Your Case to a Dedicated Alimony Attorney
When two individuals have come to the mutual conclusion that trying to continue a marital relationship is no longer an option, they usually seek a complete separation in the form of a divorce. After this divorce has been legally finalized, the individuals go their independent ways, ready to begin life anew.
The problem is that life never goes like we expect it to. What happens if one spouse is suddenly unable to provide for themselves now that they no longer have the financial provisions made by the other spouse? Alternatively, if you become physically or mentally unable to get a job, perhaps due to a debilitating accident or illness, how will you be able to survive? If these questions are filling your mind, get in touch with our Birmingham spousal support/alimony attorneys right away.
