Child Support & Divorce
Speak with Mr. McClelland about child support obligations that are required until the legal age.
Alimony in Georgia
(a) Alimony is an allowance for the support of the other party when living separately. It is either temporary or permanent. (b) A party shall not be entitled to alimony if the separation was caused by that party’s adultery or desertion.
(a) After a hearing, the court may grant temporary alimony, including expenses of litigation; (b) The judge shall consider the peculiar necessities created for each party; (c) At a hearing for temporary alimony, the merits of the case are not in issue.
(1) In cases of divorce; (2) In cases of voluntary separation; or (3) Where one spouse is abandoned or driven off.
Amount of Alimony
(a) Factors determining the amount of alimony to be awarded, if any: (1) The standard of living established; (2) The duration of the marriage; (3) The age and the physical and emotional condition ; (4) The financial resources; (5) Time to acquire sufficient education or training; (6) The contribution to the marriage; (7) Earning capacity and liabilities; and (8) Other factors.
Generally, obligations for alimony shall terminate upon remarriage. This is always a proper defense.
Child support is calculated by formula. There are certain deviations from the actual number obtained from the calculator, but judges do not like to deviate.

Depends. The county in which they reside is the proper county to file. However, if you are doing an uncontested divorce, then you can agree to either county for the divorce.
Putting Fulton County (Alpharetta or Atlanta) on the complaint or putting Cobb County (Marietta), makes no real difference if the details of the separation are worked out.
Example: Wife moved to Dekalb County, but Husband lives in Fulton County. If the two cannot agree of division of property, alimony, child custody, paternity or child support, etc. then it would be in Dekalb County.
If you both agreed, and had an uncontested divorce, then you choose to file in Fulton or Dekalb.
