Florida Alimony Attorneys Fighting for Your Best Interests
A Family law attorney advocating for your rights after a divorce
When you and your spouse files for a dissolution of marriage, one of the issues to be addressed is the issue of alimony. Is there a need for alimony and whether there is an ability to pay. The court also looks at a couple’s length of marriage, the standard of living during the marriage and the relative income of each individual. At Law Office of Pamela M. Gordon, P.A., we work with you in an attempt to establish that you are entitled to alimony. Alternatively, we can also work with you to convince the court that your spouse does not have a need for alimony and you do not have the ability to pay. Or in the event your spouse demonstrates a need for alimony, we work with you to establish that your spouse needs less than he or she requested. In Florida, there are four types of alimony agreements:
- Temporary alimony provides support during the divorce action, which may include attorney fees and relevant litigation costs.
- Rehabilitative alimony helps a dependent spouse become self-reliant and may end when an ex-spouse has found a job or has completed his or her education.
- Bridge-the-Gap alimony is awarded with a specific limit of two years
- Durational alimony a form of alimony that can be awarded by the court when permanent alimony is not appropriate
- Permanent alimony may be awarded to provide for the needs and necessities of life as they were established during the marriage for a party who lacks the financial ability to meet his or her needs and necessities of life following a long term marriage.
At Law Office of Pamela M. Gordon, P.A., we work with you to determine what kind of alimony is the best for your situation.
