Will marital fault factor into whether or not I have to pay alimony?


I am not licensed to practice law in your state. Therefore, I cannot inform you as to the specific laws in your state and can only provide you with general information regarding your situation.

Here in Tennessee, where I am licensed, marital fault does play a part in the decision to award alimony but it is only one factor to be considered. Here it is not an absolute bar to alimony and the most important factors are her need and your ability to pay.

Your question is so specific to your state’s law I would recommend that you contact an attorney in your state to go over your case and come up with a plan of action to best protect your assets.
