Alimony/Spousal Support

Charlotte County Alimony/Spousal Support Attorney

Assisting Clients With Alimony/Spousal Support Matters in Florida

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 spouses 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.

How is Alimony/Spousal Support Determined?

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, their decision will be based on the limited information they may obtain filed with the divorce papers.

You may also be in the situation where you have already received a divorce and are due spousal support, however your spouse has failed to make the payments or has moved away and you have no way of locating them. We can assist you in the collection of these overdue support payments. There are many legal methods to locate and collect the support due you.
