Why Do You Need an Attorney?
Florida statute is very specific when it comes to determining alimony, which is why you will need the aid of an experienced attorney to handle your case.
When it comes to alimony, the Florida statute states:
- Alimony can be granted only to help the spouse receiving the alimony get to a place where they are in a state that they have been accustomed to throughout the course of marriage. Alimony is meant to be palliative, not permanent.
- The amount of alimony a spouse can receive depends on the length of time the couple was married. Short-term alimony is meant for a couple that has been married for less than seven years. Moderate-term alimony is meant for couples that have been married for more than seven years but less than 17 years. Long-term alimony is meant for couples that have been married for more than 17 years.
- Even within these term lengths of alimony, there are different types of alimony a spouse can receive. Temporary alimony, for example, is what’s paid immediately upon the entering of the divorce decree and may remain the same depending on the type of alimony awarded in the last proceeding of divorce. Rehabilitative alimony, on the other hand, is a special circumstance that is provided to a spouse in order to receive vocational training to become financially independent. Regardless of the type of alimony you require or desire, contacting an attorney can help you get the alimony you deserve.
