Alimony is available in Tennessee in appropriate divorce and legal separation cases.  A number of factors go into determining an award of alimony.  The most important factor is the need of the spouse seeking alimony and the ability of the other spouse to pay the alimony.

There are four types of alimony in Tennessee.  

  • Alimony in futuro, also referred to as periodic alimony
  • Rehabilitative alimony
  • Transitional alimony
  • Alimony in solido, also called lump sum alimony

There are a number of factors that go into an alimony decision.  When facing a case involving alimony, make sure you seek the advice of an experienced Tennessee family law attorney.
