Alimony

Spousal support, or alimony as it is most commonly known, comes in many forms, including permanent alimony, rehabilitative alimony and lump sum alimony. If permanent alimony is granted, it can only be rescinded once the receiving spouse cohabits with someone for more than 90 days, remarries or dies. With so much at stake for a payors and payees, it is important to have a knowledgeable attorney looking out for your interests.

At Aaron & Aaron, we offer spousal support representation from S. Paul Aaron, an attorney with more than 30 years of experience. You can rely on him to answer your questions and make sure you are not pushed around in your alimony case.

How Do South Carolina Courts Determine Alimony?

The state's alimony statute requires the court to examine a lengthy list of factors when determining whether alimony is appropriate and the amount of any support payments. Some of these factors include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Each spouse's profession and educational background
  • Each individual's future earning potential
  • The present and future expenses and earnings of the spouses
  • The standard of living that was created during the course of the marriage
  • Property division
  • Child custody
  • Fault or marital misconduct of both spouses

Our extensive understanding of these and all other pertinent portions of South Carolina's alimony laws allow us to provide you with the honest advice and assertive advocacy that you need to protect your financial interests during a divorce.
