Maitland Alimony Attorney

What is Spousal Support?

One of the most common concerns following the dissolution of a marriage revolves around the potential for alimony payments. Also known as spousal support, alimony is a form of financial assistance that may be awarded to either spouse, depending on the circumstances. If both parties are stable and able to financially support themselves, spousal support will not be necessary, contact our experienced Maitland alimony attorneys today.

Types of Spousal Support & How it Is Determined

In the State of Florida, there are numerous types of alimony. Bridge-the-gap alimony is awarded to help a party transition from being married to being single. Rehabilitative alimony is designed to help one party be self-supporting by redeveloping previous skills or credentials or acquiring new skills, education, or work experience. Durational alimony is awarded when one spouse needs assistance only for a specified period of time. Finally, permanent alimony is received until death or remarriage by the party receiving the payments.

When determining alimony, courts will look at a variety of factors, including:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • The standard of living during the marriage
  • Each party’s age
  • Physical and emotional health
  • Financial resources of both parties
  • Distribution of liabilities of the marriage
  • Specific financial needs
  • Current income and assets
  • Damages to earning capacity incurred during the marriage
  • Contributions to the other parties’ education, training, or career
