How do I know if I qualify for alimony? (Ala)
An Alabama court can order alimony to either spouse but only if it finds that alimony is actually necessary. Alimony awards are usually not permanent and reserved for situations where one spouse has been dependent on the other. There is no set formula for determining the amount to be awarded. A divorce attorney familiar with Alabama laws should be able to give you a rough idea of whether or not you will be getting alimony once he knows the specifics of your situation. – The Divorce.com Team
