Spousal support in Georgia can often be an uncertain topic. That is, the guidelines for evaluating and awarding alimony are subjective and largely left to a judge’s discretion.

Taxes: Always relevant, including in a divorce

“The No. 1 issue relating to retirement assets is taxation,” says one certified public accountant.
