Thank you for your question.

Yes the court will consider the bills that you are required to pay in addition to the bills that your wife is required to pay in determining spousal support/alimony. Your the factors that the Georgia court will consider in determining alimony: marital fault; participation each party had to the marital estate; the length of the marriage; the future financial resources of each party; the age and health of each party; the future earning potential of each party; the net worth of each party's separate property; the standard of living sustained during the marriage; and rehabilitative time one party may need to gain employment.
