Orlando Alimony Attorneys

Advocating for You in All Spousal Support Matters

The issue of alimony, otherwise known as spousal support or maintenance, is sometimes a hotly disputed issue in divorce. Florida laws regarding alimony are complex and give judges far more discretion in awarding or denying it than in other financial matters related to divorce. Furthermore, current thinking on the matter favors eliminating lifetime alimony as a viable option in divorce.

Whether you are seeking or contesting alimony in your divorce, you will need a strong advocate who understands this issue and how local courts determine it. The Law Office of Paulette Hamilton, P.A. can provide the guidance and strong representation you need in court or at the negotiating table. Our Orlando alimony lawyers are here to give you honest advice and realistic expectations based on your marital history and financial situation. We are also here to fight for a positive outcome no matter the circumstances.

Alimony in Florida Divorces

Once marital property has been divided, the court will then decide the issue of alimony should one party request it.

Florida awards four different types of alimony:

  • Permanent, which is received until the remarriage of the receiving spouse or the death of either spouse
  • Durational, which is received for a specific period of time
  • Rehabilitative, which is received for a limited period of time during which the receiving spouse obtains an education, training, or the skills to become financially independent
  • Bridge-the-gap, which is received while making the transition to being a single person, providing financial support for necessities such as a vehicle or a home

Temporary alimony may also be awarded to the lower-earning spouse while the divorce process is in progress. In high-asset cases, it may be awarded as a lump sum as opposed to monthly payments. All alimony awards are based on factors, including each party’s marital and work histories, financial resources, the length of the marriage, and the standard of living enjoyed during the marriage.
