I need to know about alimony and child support in Milton, Georgia

Posted by William H. Sherman on Jan 24, 2016 | 0 Comments

Question:   It seems that we know a lot of people here in Milton, Georgia who are getting divorced. And I'm very worried that my husband is seeing another woman because he stays late at the office all the time, is never interested in going out with me and I noticed that he's always testing texting with someone and when I ask who he starts to sweat and stammers.

He's been like this for about 6 months and the other night I caught him researching divorce on the internet.  When I asked what he was doing he said just research for work.  But he works selling cars in Sandy Springs so he has nothing to do with divorce in any professional sense.

And I've noticed changes with him that makes me think another woman is in the picture.  He's buying a lot of new clothes, he lost weight and he's taking Viagra.  So I think there's something up with him.

I need to have some questions answered because I haven't worked in over 10 years because we got married after meeting in a bar in Alpharetta, when he was married to his first wife.  They divorced and he married me about two months later.

So because I haven't worked I don't know how I'd support myself or the kids.  They go to a private school in Milton and it's not cheap.  So I need to know what I should do if we wind up getting divorced.

Answer:   As divorce lawyers in Milton, GA, we have been getting a number of questions from people in Milton about divorce. I don't know if the divorce rate in that city is higher than elsewhere (it probably isn't) but many of the questions we're getting seem to be about how finances are impacted with a divorce.

Generally, if someone was not working and the marriage was of a certain length, then alimony can certainly come into play. And if there are children involved, then child support is often an issue.

Of course, the facts regarding each matter are different, but we certainly seek to ensure that our clients get the best deal possible for their situation. Alimony can be vital to a spouse who has not worked in a number of years and child support is very important to a custodial parent raising children.
