Florida Spousal Support Attorney

Alimony is paid by one spouse to the other after a divorce. If you require financial assistance while you are going through the divorce process, speak to an attorney as soon as possible. While the divorce is pending, you may qualify for temporary alimony.

There are four types of alimony in Florida. Someone may quality for several of these forms of support or none of them:

  • Bridge the gap (temporary) alimony
  • Rehabilitative alimony
  • Lump sum alimony
  • Permanent periodic alimony

There is no set formula for determining spousal support. The amount and type of alimony granted is entirely dependent upon the facts of your individual circumstances, and the judge's discretion. The length of the marriage and the income of both parties are two factors that are typically strongly considered. A skilled Jacksonville alimony lawyer will ensure that the judge considers your side of the case and will protect your interests.
