Skilled Legal Help For Florida Spousal Support
For many individuals, the stress of divorce is compounded by financial struggles. Both parties may wrestle to cover additional living expenses with income that is now split. The court generally awards alimony, also referred to as spousal support, to the financially weaker partner to facilitate the transition from being married to single. While there are guidelines for spousal support, a judge has significant discretion when determining the length and amount of the support. Because of the judge’s power, it is essential that you have a knowledgeable attorney by your side.

Negotiations regarding alimony are complex and often among the most contentious aspects of a divorce settlement. Although there are situations in which a person can request modifications to an original alimony agreement, most of the time you get just one opportunity to get it right. Whether you expect to receive spousal support or pay it, it is critical to have a knowledgeable divorce lawyer who will protect your rights and obtain a fair agreement.
The court considers many factors before determining whether a spouse will receive alimony and how much will be paid, including:
