About Alimony/Spousal Support

Alimony/spousal support is not mandatory or automatic when it comes to divorce proceedings. Not all marriages require spousal support to be paid, however if one of the spouse's requests it, it does need to be considered in the settlement agreement. The court may find it necessary to award alimony, or spousal support, in many cases. As with child support, the court will consider two factors: one party's need and the other's ability to pay. Both of these factors must be proven in court by the requesting spouse. Alimony may be awarded to either a husband or wife and, depending on the length of the marriage and other factors, the alimony may be permanent or for only a short duration. Because this is an issue that requires skill and experience in negotiating, it is best to have a qualified Florida Divorce attorney to assist you with this aspect of your divorce. If it is possible to obtain agreement out of court on a spousal support figure, it gives you more leeway in having some control of the outcome. If the family law court makes the determination of an award amount, there decision will be based on the limited information they may obtain filed with the divorce papers.
