Dedicated Alabama Alimony Attorney
As part of many divorce decrees in Alabama, alimony is awarded. In most cases, the recipient spouse is the one who was not the primary wage earner in the marriage. Also referred to as spousal support, alimony can be awarded on a temporary or indefinite basis, depending on the circumstances of the marriage.
The recipient spouse relies on alimony as financial support following a divorce, and its inclusion in a divorce agreement constitutes a court order requiring the paying spouse to comply. If the spouse who has been ordered to pay alimony fails to do so, he or she can be held in contempt of court and compelled to comply with the order.
