In Need of an Alimony Attorney in Simpsonville, SC?

At the David W. Martin Law Group, our Simpsonville alimony lawyers know that while South Carolina is a state that allows spousal support to be awarded during divorce proceedings, and for a set duration upon its finalization, not all divorcing spouses are eligible for the financial award.

Our Greenville County alimony attorneys will help you understand your financial support options during the divorce, and what you may be entitled to once the agreement or court order is finalized, so you can plan your future with confidence.

We also represent individuals who are seeking to minimize their potential spousal support payments, so their finances are reviewed fairly and accurately against their soon-to-be-ex-spouse’s ability to support themselves.

The court will consider several factors to determine your unique spousal support eligibility or payment requirements. Here is what South Carolina residents need to know.

How are Alimony Payments Calculated in South Carolina?

Alimony can be evaluated and agreed upon privately by the spouses before they finalize their divorce agreement. Or, if they cannot decide on their own — or if there is a disagreement regarding the amount of alimony, or the award as a whole — we will evaluate your financial support requirements during mediation inside the courtroom during litigation.

We will review the following details when determining your eligibility to receive alimony, or your obligation to pay spousal support:

  • The length of your marriage, and the standard of living during that time.
  • The separate and marital assets of each spouse.
  • Whether your divorce was initiated by the fault of one spouse.
  • Each spouse’s education, employment history, and ability to earn.
  • Child custody and child support agreements when the spouses share minor children.

At the David W. Martin Law Group, our Simpsonville alimony attorneys will evaluate your case and provide customized legal solutions for your unique needs.

How is Spousal Support Awarded in South Carolina?

When one spouse is at a financial disadvantage and the other spouse has the means to support them financially, the court will consider the amount of the payments and how long they should be made.

Whether you are the potential paying spouse, or the recipient, our Simpsonville spousal support lawyers will review your marital and separate finances to determine a fair outcome.

That may include:

  • Lump-Sum Alimony: Paid all at once, or in dedicated amounts in a specific timeframe.
  • Periodic Alimony: Ongoing, periodic support payments that will be reviewed for modification or termination based on the circumstances.
  • Rehabilitative Alimony: Assists the recipient with the financial resources necessary to gather further education, work experience, or training to earn an income.
  • Reimbursement Alimony: Reimbursement for one spouse for the financial or time contributions he or she made during the marriage to help the other succeed in their education, training, or profession.

Since there is a mandatory one-year separation period required for no-fault divorces in South Carolina, our skilled Simpsonville family lawyers assist our clients in obtaining financial support during this time, so their financial transition is simplified.

No matter which side of the courtroom you are on, we will help you either increase the probability of being awarded alimony in South Carolina or build a case that substantially demonstrates your spouse can support him or herself without your financial help.
