    Greenville Alimony Attorney


    Legal Assistance for Alimony

    Alimony is financial support paid to a former spouse. There are different types of alimony in South Carolina. Permanent, periodic alimony is paid on a regular schedule over time. Alimony terminates on the death of either party or when the receiving spouse begins to cohabitate or decides to remarry. This alimony is modifiable based on a showing of a substantial change in circumstances.


    Some spouses can choose to pay a lump sum alimony which is an agreed upon set amount. This can usually be paid in one payment or in a schedule of payments. Spousal support may be ordered pending a final divorce.

    Factors Affecting Alimony in South Carolina

    South Carolina law requires Family Law Courts to consider a number of factors in making a ruling on an alimony request such as:

    • Duration of the marriage, including the ages of spouses at time of marriage and at time of divorce,
    • Employment history and earning potential of each spouse,
    • Current and reasonably anticipated earnings of both spouses,
    • Current and reasonably anticipated expenses and needs of both spouses,
    • Physical and emotional condition of each spouse,
    • Educational background of each spouse together with need of each spouse for additional training or education in order to achieve that spouse’s income potential,
    • Marital and non-marital properties of each spouse,
    • Marital misconduct or fault of either spouse,
    • Custody of the minor children,
    • Existence and extent of support obligation from a prior marriage,
    • Tax consequences of support award.

    Sometimes in life you end up in situations that you never imagined and for me that was going through a divorce. Lauren and her team were prepared every step of the process and made sure all of my options were explained and understood. I can’t thank them enough for helping get my case settled before trial. A great team to work with and have on your side at a time of need.
