What is Alimony?

Alimony, also called spousal support, constitutes a financial arrangement that courts may mandate during divorce proceedings. This arrangement involves one spouse making periodic payments to the other, aiming to provide financial assistance and sustain a comparable standard of living post-divorce. The fundamental purpose of alimony is to address any economic imbalances between spouses, ensuring that both parties can move forward with financial stability.

Types of Alimony in Alabama

Alabama recognizes several types of alimony, and a comprehensive understanding of these distinctions is essential when formulating a fair and equitable settlement. At Ruth Robinson Law, our attorneys possess extensive knowledge of each type, guiding clients through the intricacies of alimony in Birmingham.

  • Temporary Alimony: This is granted during divorce proceedings to address immediate financial needs.
  • Rehabilitative Alimony: Crafted to support the recipient spouse in acquiring the necessary skills or education to achieve self-sufficiency.
  • Permanent Alimony: Awarded when one spouse is unlikely to attain self-sufficiency due to age, disability, or other circumstances. This form of alimony persists until a predetermined event, such as the death of a party or the recipient's remarriage.
  • Reimbursement Alimony: Conferred to compensate a spouse for financial contributions made during the marriage, such as supporting the other spouse's education or career development.
  • Lump-Sum Alimony: This involves a one-time payment of a fixed amount, providing a conclusive resolution to the alimony obligation.

Who Qualifies for Alimony in a Divorce?

Determining alimony involves a multifaceted process, considering various factors. Our attorneys at Ruth Robinson Law possess the expertise to assess the unique circumstances of each case, advocating for our clients' best interests.

  • Duration of the Marriage: Lengthier marriages often correlate with a higher likelihood of alimony being granted, particularly when spouses have a substantial income disparity.
  • Financial Disparities: The court evaluates the financial needs of the recipient spouse and the paying spouse's capacity to meet those needs, including income, earning potential, and assets.
  • Contributions to the Marriage: The court may consider non-economic contributions, such as homemaking or supporting the other spouse's career.
  • Standard of Living: Alimony aims to help the recipient spouse maintain a standard of living akin to that experienced during the marriage.
  • Fault in the Divorce: While Alabama operates as a no-fault divorce state, the court may still weigh the circumstances leading to the divorce when determining alimony.

  • “She communicated with me throughout the process.”
    She got pretrial diversion for me in my case. She communicated with me throughout the process. She also did not have to return to court with me for the final step but she did!

  • “She went above and beyond”
    Due to a misunderstanding, a warrant was issued in Alabama, even though we live in Virginia and hadn't been to Alabama for many years. We were apprehensive about the possibility of traveling to Alabama during these uncertain times. Luckily, Ms. Robinson was able to quickly and professionally interact with local law enforcement and the district attorney's office to get the case dismissed without us having to be there. Throughout her handling of the case, she went above and beyond to make sure we were aware she was doing everything in her power to assist us. We are deeply appreciative of her and her efforts and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone needing representation.

  • “Amazing and highly recommended.”
    I contacted Ruth Robinson on a Saturday regarding a warrant that was issued for failure to appear. On Monday, she filed a notice of appearance as my attorney and filed a motion to have the warrant recalled. The court told her they’d recall the warrant and set a new court date. Ruth was very professional, diligent, and went above and beyond for me. She listened to everything I told her, requested me to send her several screenshots and filed the necessary paperwork to get the warrant recalled and a new court date. Amazing and highly recommended if you want or need someone who is passionate about practicing law and treating you like you’re a priority.

  • “I trust her completely and she has always worked hard for me.”
    Ruth Robinson is a thorough and passionate criminal defense attorney. When I found myself facing criminal charges for something that was completely bogus in a corrupt governmental atmosphere, she has worked with me diligently and continues to do so. I trust her completely and she has always worked hard for me. Better than any attorney I could ask for through and through.
