Informative & Effective Counsel for Spousal Support

We have helped both men and women with their alimony or spousal support determinations. Either men or women can receive alimony.

There are several general types of alimony awarded in Florida:

  • Permanent alimony - may be awarded to the spouse with less income earning ability if the marriage was determined by the court to be a long-term marriage
  • Durational alimony - spousal support that may be available following a short or moderate length marriage and awarded to a spouse with less earning capacity for a set period, not longer than the length of the marriage
  • Bridge-the-gap alimony - a tapering amount or short-term (six months to five years) amount of alimony to allow someone the time to get back on their financial feet
  • Rehabilitative alimony - spousal support for someone who has a career plan for education or training for a new profession or job

Temporary alimony, nominal alimony or lump sum alimony may also be appropriate forms of support for individuals following divorce.

In general, the payee may lose alimony if he or she re-marries or co-habitats with a new partner, or if there is any other significant change in circumstances for either party that would warrant a modification.

How Much Is Alimony?

The amount of alimony or spousal support will depend upon a number of factors, such as:

  • What was the standard of living during the marriage?
  • How long were you married?
  • Your age, employment history, and earning ability if you are seeking maintenance
  • Your physical condition if you are seeking maintenance
  • What are your financial resources and your spouse's, and what is your earning ability in today's job market?
  • What is your ability, after divorce, to contribute to the future educational costs of your children?
  • Is any time necessary for re-education or skill training, and what would it cost?

We can clearly explain to you your options and the best ways to move forward with your spousal support case at this time.
