Alimony

West Palm Beach Divorce Lawyer / Alimony Attorney

Florida Courts have wide discretion in determining the amount of alimony that one spouse may be required to pay the other. Alimony can either temporary (“Rehabilitative”) or permanent in various forms depending on the circumstances. This is often the least understood area of law by attorneys and the proper handling issues related to alimony have far reaching financial consequences both parties. A family law attorney or divorce lawyer who understands the law and the requirements that must be met is essential. Alimony and child support are two of the most critical issues in many divorces and the decisions on these issues often impact the lives of all parties well beyond the conclusion of the divorce.

An adjustment or modification of alimony due to a change in circumstances may be possible after the conclusion of the divorce due to the death, remarriage, or cohabitation of the spouse with another. There have been significant changes in the law regarding alimony therefore legal advice should be obtained in many cases.

Disputes as to the amount of alimony to be paid are decided by consideration of a number of factors including the need for support by one spouse and the ability of the other spouse to pay, length of the marriage, and the career opportunities of the spouse. Most disputes regarding alimony as well as divorce in general can be resolved between the parties prior to reaching the Judge to limit the uncertainty but in some cases this issue will need to be litigated to reach a just result.
