Jacksonville Alimony Attorneys

When a couple decides to divorce, there is often one spouse who provides more to the family financially than the other spouse. This can leave one spouse at a financial disadvantage that they often were not prepared for. The idea behind alimony is that each spouse is placed on a similar financial footing, or that they are provided with a reasonable opportunity to be self-supporting.  

The Florida laws regarding alimony are constantly changing, and that can make it difficult for an individual to know what they can expect to pay if they choose to dissolve their marriage. There are 6 different types of alimony that one might pay or receive based on their particular situation.

These include:

  • Permanent Alimony
  • Temporary Alimony
  • Rehabilitative Alimony
  • Bridge-the-gap Alimony
  • Lump-Sum Alimony
  • Durational Alimony

A qualified Family Lawyer can fully explain these different types of alimony to you, and what you may be eligible to receive or responsible to pay. This can vary greatly on a case-by-case basis, so having a dedicated lawyer to assist can have a great impact on your ability to receive alimony or your responsibility to pay alimony to your spouse.

If you are considering a divorce, and believe that alimony is a possibility, then it is important to move quickly so that all of your financial history can be accurately assessed and a plan can be created prior to going to court.
