Jacksonville Alimony Attorney
Experienced Jacksonville Divorce Lawyers on Your Side
In the case of dissolution of marriage, one party may require financial assistance through the means of the other party. This exchange of monetary funds after divorce is called alimony. The purpose of alimony is to eliminate unfair economic limitations of either party after a divorce. It is a continual monthly exchange of finances from the higher earning spouse to the lower earning spouse.
It can be a very challenging topic after divorce because of the emotional distress that the topic causes. It is a necessary obligation after divorce that allows the lower earning spouse to make his or her way in the world. As a Jacksonville divorce attorney I can help put together an alimony agreement that effectively works with both parties.
Who is entitled to receive alimony in Florida?
During a proceeding for dissolution of marriage, the court can grant alimony to either party. There are different kinds of alimony which can be given; either temporary, bridge-the-gap, rehabilitative, durational, or permanent. The court can also decide whether this payment will be made in one lump sum or during set monthly periods. They will also take into consideration factors such as adultery and domestic abuse, when determining alimony. The primary determination of how much alimony, if any, should be granted, is whether or not either party has a need for spousal support.
It is my desire that you are able to receive the alimony you deserve and that your rights are fully protected no matter whether you are on the lower income or higher income side of the situation.
The court takes into consideration many factors, such as the length of marriage, when making the decision to grant alimony and how much. My firm can discuss your probability of receiving this payment and how much to expect. I can also help prepare an agreement that the courts may agree to allow.
