Palimony Lawyer in Lawrenceville

Lawrenceville Divorce Lawyer Serving Gwinnett County

Palimony is a non-legal term used to describe a settlement that occurs when two unmarried people that live together for several years end their relationship. It is based on the concept that there was an implied agreement that one party was to provide domestic support to the other. In a palimony lawsuit the person requesting support will usually claim that he or she gave up a career to provide the domestic help. As of January 1, 1997, common law marriage in Georgia was abolished, however the common law marriage of individuals engaged in a relationship prior to that date is still considered valid. Before 1997, the common law marriage requirements included:

  • Both parties were at least 18 years of age
  • Neither party had a prior unresolved marriage
  • Both individuals could legally enter into a contract
  • There was a contract
  • The relationship had been consummated
