Alimony We Work Strategically & Passionately To Protect Your Future

Orlando Alimony Attorney

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.

Call The Law Office of Paulette Hamilton, P.A. at (407) 624-5344 or contact us online to speak with our Orlando alimony attorney today.

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 different types of alimony:

  • 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

How Long Do You Have to Be Married in Florida to Get Alimony?

Temporary alimony may 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.

    "She provided a level of personalized attention that I was not expecting."
    Paulette and her staff (Sonia, Susan, & Tanya) were an absolute Blessing! Five-star service all the way! This was my first extensive experience dealing with a law firm and going through a legal process of any sort that required consultation. Needless to say, I was extremely anxious about the entire situation. I worried about the time, resources, and cost among other things. Paulette made me feel completely at ease and addressed all of my concerns very promptly. She provided a level of personalized attention that I was not expecting. I worked with her office for well over a year and was never disappointed by the quality of care and support they provided while handling my case. I have and would refer her to friends/family and I plan to use her services again in the future. It is already a challenge when you are dependent on the word and performance of a stranger, whether you are paying for the service or not - you are still in a vulnerable position. If that stranger is an Attorney then you are likely in a position to benefit or suffer in a significant way. Paulette gained my trust and by the end of the process, I was confident that I'd not only made an excellent choice with her firm, but I'd also made a Friend! Thank you, Paulette, Sonia, Susan, and Tanya - I will always appreciate your hard work and kind hearts!

    "she truly is a shining example of what it means to be the hands and feet of Goodness."
    Paulette Hamilton, Esquire, is exclusively a 5-star attorney. She and her staff are helpful, patient, caring and empathetic to the human conditions of need, pain, stress, and burden.

    Since meeting and entrusting her, my life has turned drastically in the right direction. Without her diligence and advisement, I would still be exactly in the spot I was in four short months ago.

    Although I entered myself into a financial crisis, in both controllable and uncontrollable ways, she helped me right myself and educated me to exact my focus and energy on being a financially solvent consumer-citizen. I cannot thank her enough for that blessing; she truly is a shining example of what it means to be the hands and feet of Goodness.

    "Open and honest from the beginning."
    I have searched for attorneys left and right. I have received both good and bad advice from what I believe to be people just after money. The moment I spoke with Paulette and her team, I knew that I had found a fighter. A firm who would fight for my families rights. Paulette is passionate about the work she does, she listens and never makes you feel rushed. She is open and honest from the beginning. One thing I truly appreciate about her, is the honesty. Even if it is something I believe I needed, or wanted, she would remind me of what truly was a need. Her paralegal Angela is just as much as a fighter. I never felt alone, even on holidays I would receive responses. I am forever grateful for Paulette and Angela and would highly recommend them to anyone who feels or has felt lost. The law is on your side when you have the right people there to back you up.
