Tampa Alimony Lawyer
Florida Alimony Attorneys
In any divorce proceeding, financial matters are always a significant concern. Especially in households where one spouse is the primary wage earner, the other spouse may be concerned with his or her financial stability after the divorce. In cases like these, spousal support can be an important part of the divorce agreement.
Also referred to as spousal support, alimony is not automatically included in a Florida divorce. The court looks at many factors when considering spousal support and has broad discretion with regard to awarding it. These factors include one spouse’s need versus the other spouse’s ability to pay, the length of the marriage, the standard of living that was established and the earning capacity of each spouse. A strong case needs to be made in support of your request for spousal support, and it is important that you have an experienced Tampa spousal support lawyer representing you from the start.

Under Florida law, four types of spousal support can be awarded. Temporary spousal support can be awarded while your divorce is pending. Permanent alimony is typically awarded after a long-term marriage as a way to maintain the standard of living that was established. Rehabilitative spousal support is sometimes awarded to help one of the spouses complete his or her education to find gainful employment. Lump sum Spousal Support is sometimes ordered in lieu of permanent alimony.
