Alimony is a system of support which helps the financially weaker spouse get back on their feet after a divorce. If it is necessary, there are many ways that alimony can be structured. An experienced Aventura divorce lawyer like S.G. Morrow and Associates can advise you and answer your questions. We will help you determine what type of alimony, whether it is permanent, temporary, durational, or periodic, is right for you and your family. Our Aventura Alimony Attorney can help you.
While there are a number of facets which make up the law concerning spousal support and alimony, there is a simple two-pronged test to determine whether you can receive it.
Once it is determined that you are able to receive spousal support, the question of how much and for how long comes into play. The answer to these questions rests in both the tangible and the intangible, often going to the very heart of the marriage itself.
There are several types of alimony awarded in Florida courts. We will help you find the option that fits your needs and the financial situation of your former spouse:
Unless you sign an agreement making your spousal support plan non-modifiable, all types of alimony settlements can be changed. If there is a major change in the financial situation of either party, that person could apply to the court and petition for upward or downward modification of alimony. Major financial changes could include job loss, retirement, or medical issues.
