The laws governing permanent alimony and temporary alimony are very different. It is not a foregone conclusion that you cannot get permanent alimony. However, even if the facts of your case would not allow you to get permanent alimony, you could still get temporary alimony while the case is pending. It could be pending for quite a while as you are trying to resolve the issue of equitable division of property. You definitely need the services of an experienced family law attorney in this matter.
I am exclusively a family law attorney, practicing primarily in the metro Atlanta, Georgia trial courts. However, I handle appeals from anywhere in Georgia.
