Nashville Alimony Attorneys

Helping Clients Keep Their Standards of Living After Divorce

When it comes to divorce, securing your financial stability is a crucial aspect that can stress you out. Some households have one spouse who stays home to raise children or deal with disability, while the other spouse is the sole wage-earner. In this type of marriage, alimony or spousal maintenance becomes something to talk about and seriously consider.

Not all couples have equal forms of income, which can leave the one who makes less in a disadvantageous situation. At the law office ofLackey | McDonald, PLLC in Nashville, our skilled family law attorneys have the experience to help guide you through the alimony process if you are considering divorce. The dedicated lawyers at our law firm can help make all the difference in your alimony case.

How Do the Courts Determine Alimony?

Several factors come into play when determining alimony potential, which can include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Educational background of each spouse
  • Child custody
  • Mental/physical health of each spouse
  • The separate property of each spouse
  • Each spouse’s earning capacity
  • The contributions each spouse made to the marriage

Why Do Courts Award Alimony?

Alimony payments are not meant to create a rift between you and your spouse, they are simply meant to help one spouse if they do not have the same means as the other. No matter what stage your marriage is at, Lackey | McDonald, PLLC is here to help you understand your rights and advocate for your needs.
