Alimony

There is no official chart or calculator for alimony. There is an alimony statute in South Carolina Code of Laws and there is much case law in South Carolina which assists the court to determine alimony issues.

Alimony must be requested in pleadings in the family court litigation. The family court judge will determine whether to award alimony and what amount should be awarded.

Godfrey Law Firm will help you analyze your situation to determine if one of the types of alimony (permanent periodic, rehabilitative, or reimbursement) would be applicable in your case.
