Broward Alimony Lawyer
Alimony, also known as spousal support, is one of the most complicated areas of Florida divorce law. One reason for this is that, unlike child support, there is no formula for calculating how much alimony should be awarded in each case. In fact, unless the spouses agree to it, even the decision to award alimony at all is completely up to the judge.
So, whether you're making the case for or against alimony, it’s important to know what spousal support in Florida is based on and how it’s determined.
The two most important factors in any alimony determination are need and ability to pay. The spouse who requests alimony has to prove that he or she has a need for alimony and that the other spouse has the ability to pay alimony. That’s basically it.
In a divorce case, many factors affect the type of alimony awarded, the amount of alimony awarded, even whether alimony is awarded at all. We have the training and experience needed to protect your rights in this complex area of divorce law.
