Family Law

Some people give alimony a bad name. They assume it is just one more way for a woman or man to swindle money from the ex-spouse. In reality, alimony (or spousal support) helps ensure an equal standard of living between divorcing couples. It helps make it possible for someone to get back on his or feet and prosper without the former spouse's income.

If you have questions about alimony, please contact Gina H. McDonald & Associates at (205) 982-3325

Divorce cases often include alimony discussions if one spouse was the primary income provider for the family. However, payments are not automatic, like child support. Whether someone is a candidate to receive alimony depends on several factors including the number of years of marriage, the amount of education and job training both parties have, and yearly income.

  • Periodic alimony - Alimony can serve as supplemental income for a spouse after a divorce. This alimony can be temporary or indefinite.
  • Alimony in gross - Many of our clients own houses, businesses or other property with their spouse. Alimony in gross is a fixed amount given to a former spouse as part of a property settlement.
