Hollywood
Alimony & Spousal Support Attorney

The decision to divorce is never an easy one.

When couples do decide to part ways, the issue of alimony and spousal support will often come up. It’s crucial that each party understands not only their eligibility but the options that they have when it comes to negotiating a spousal support plan.

We have over 20 years of experience in family law matters and can answer your questions about alimony and spousal support, whether permanent alimony, temporary spousal support, or periodic alimony is the right solution for you and for your family after the divorce.

The Factors Which Determine Alimony & Spousal Support

What factors play a part in determining the payment of alimony and spousal support?
  • Necessity – Does one party need alimony and spousal support?
  • Length of Marriage – How long was the couple married?
  • Ability – Does the other party have the ability to pay alimony or spousal support?

There are options for temporary spousal support even if there is a prenuptial agreement in place. If you are in this situation, it’s worth examining your options with a Hollywood family law attorney.

In the state of Florida, there are three primary types of alimony or spousal support. We can help you to determine which option will best suit the needs of both you and your former spouse. This includes:

  • Lump Sum Alimony: The former spouse with the ability to pay will make a single large lump sum payment to the spouse that has been awarded support. Often if one spouse has a job where earnings potential is questionable or more volatile, this is the type of spousal support or alimony payment that is made.
  • Permanent Periodic Alimony: This is one of the most common forms of spousal support. This type of alimony payment is awarded and is terminated when the payee spouse remarries or dies. Such permanent payments can be renegotiated depending on the financial situation of either the payer or the payee.
  • Bridge-the-Gap Alimony: This type of spousal support or alimony is so that a spouse who leaves the marriage in a needy state can get back on their feet and get on with their life. Such alimony or spousal support is designed to be short-term and could include living expenses such as deposits for rent and utilities.

Modifying Alimony or Spousal Support

Family law states that every alimony plan is modifiable unless both parties have agreed that it is set in stone.

The courts understand that circumstances change, that jobs get lost, that there are financial hardships and triumphs. We are also able to assist you with modification of your alimony agreement.

Some of the reasons for alimony modifications include:

  • Change in employment
  • Health concerns
  • The recipient’s living conditions
  • Increases or decreases in the cost of living
  • The supporting spouse getting remarried
  • Retirement
