Experienced Spousal Support Attorneys in Clarksville Protect Your Right to a Secure Financial Future

Aggressively supporting clients in spousal support disputes

Tennessee recognizes several distinct types of spousal support, which makes it important to retain a Clarksville alimony attorney to protect your rights. The dedicated attorneys of Bateman & Bateman, PC provide you with expert legal counsel to help you through one of the more difficult aspects of divorce.

There are four types of alimony in Tennessee:

  • Alimony in futuro: Alimony in futuro (“into the future”) is intended to provide support on a long-term basis until the death or remarriage of the recipient. Contact Bateman & Bateman, PC to determine whether an alimony request is the exception instead of the norm.
  • Alimony in solido: Alimony in solido (“lump sum”) is also a form of long-term support, with a payment of a definite amount in monthly installments. Contact our Clarksville spousal support attorneys to discuss your long-term spousal support options.
  • Rehabilitative alimony: Rehabilitative alimony is intended to assist an economically disadvantaged spouse in acquiring additional education or training that will enable the spouse to achieve a standard of living comparable to the standard of living that existed during the marriage or the post-divorce standard of living expected to be available to the other spouse. The experienced attorneys at Bateman & Bateman, PC evaluate situations regarding a spouse’s need for new job skills or training to gain self-sufficiency.
  • Transitional alimony: The fourth category of support, transitional alimony, is appropriate when a court finds that rehabilitation is not required but that the economically disadvantaged spouse needs financial assistance in adjusting to the economic consequences of the divorce. An alimony attorney in Clarksville can help you determine whether you qualify for transitional alimony.

Alimony award

The court considers the nature, amount, length, and manner of payment in determining whether or not to award spousal support. The two most important considerations are the disadvantaged spouse’s need and the other spouse’s ability to pay, which is why you should contact a Clarksville divorce attorney at Bateman & Bateman, PC for legal advice.
