Marietta Alimony Lawyer

During a marriage, spouses develop a certain lifestyle. Through divorce proceedings, they may wonder if they will be able to continue a similar lifestyle. Alimony, also known as spousal support, is designed to provide support to a spouse. It can be permanent or temporary, depending on the circumstances. It can also be paid over time or in a lump sum amount. The law office of G. Cleveland Payne III, P.C., represents people seeking alimony and those who will be responsible for alimony payments.

What Types of Alimony Are Available?

Attorney G. Cleveland Payne III is a Georgia spousal support lawyer who has extensive knowledge of alimony and how it is determined. Mr. Payne can offer you guidance on what you may be able to expect from the court based on your specific situation. The types of alimony available are as follows:

  • Temporary alimony (rehabilitative alimony): This is awarded to a spouse to provide financial assistance while going through a divorce, and before a property settlement is reached, or to provide for a spouse seeking to obtain financial independence after divorce.
  • Permanent alimony: This support will last until a spouse’s death or remarriage. There are many factors that the court can use to determine whether an award for permanent alimony is warranted.
  • Separate maintenance: If you and your spouse want to separate, but not divorce, alimony (spousal support) may still be awarded to the spouse in need of financial assistance.

Mr. Payne was a godsend! I recently relocated to Georgia from California where I had been struggling to procure a divorce for quite some time. Upon my first telephone consultation with Mr. Payne, he clearly explained the process that needed to take place, an approximate timeline and the expense involved. He provided every aspect as laid out with the utmost professionalism and courtesy as well as finalizing my divorce ahead of schedule and under budget. I couldn't have asked for him to be any more considerate in guiding me through an emotionally difficult process. Thank you Mr. Payne!!

When finding myself in a life changing situation, I wanted a lawyer with good morals and values to represent me. I also wanted to find someone who could represent me without becoming a number in a large law firm. In choosing Mr. Payne I felt I received the time and attention required to move forward in my circumstances with positive results. He and his staff were both professional, knowledgeable, thorough and caring which meant a lot to me while moving through a difficult time. I was continually involved and kept updated throughout the whole legal process.
