Franklin Alimony Lawyer

Every marriage has its own structure. In some marriages, one spouse must sacrifice their personal dreams and goals to take care of the family while the other spouse is tasked with earning money for the family. When such a marriage ends, the spouse who sacrificed their personal advancement for the benefit of the family is left at a disadvantage.

The law provides that such a spouse may be entitled to financial support to get back on their feet. If you are facing a divorce or separation, you may be concerned about how you are going to take care of yourself and your financial needs.

What Tennessee Courts Consider in Determining Alimony

When a court considers whether to award alimony to a spouse, the court takes into account a variety of factors including:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The standard of living established in the duration of the marriage
  • The age and mental capacity of each party
  • The health and physical condition of each party
  • The extent of education and training each party has obtained
  • The earning capacity, obligations, needs, and financial resources of each party
  • The separate assets each party owns
  • The tangible and intangible contributions each party made to the marriage
