A client came into my Brentwood, TN office today and stated, " My neighbor just got divorced and she got 3 years of alimony.  So is that the standard length of time for alimony?"

Attorneys tell me there is no standard or typical duration for alimony or standard or typical amount for alimony.  The two key facors attorneys focus on is what one spouse needs and the other is able to pay.  How do we understand need and ability?  By focusing on their monthly incomes and expenses...
