Divorce can radically alter each party’s financial circumstances. Divorce can be costly when marital assets are divided. If one companion is the primary breadwinner, they will walk away with more assets and resources. Alimony or spousal support softens the financial blow that the lower-earning spouse suffers during divorce. One party might need to support themselves for months afterward. They might need support while they learn new job skills. However, the more alimony that the receiving spouse gets, the more difficult it is for the paying spouse to keep up with their expenses. In any case,
Aubrey Harry Ducker Jr. is an Orlando alimony attorney who can help you find a fair balance.
Alimony is based on the following set of criteria, according to Florida statute 61.08:
Alimony, or spousal support, is regularly set for a short length of time. In most cases, the spouse receiving alimony will be given temporary support for less than two years. Bridge-the-gap divorce alimony, for example, is awarded for up to two years. It is used to assist the party transition from married to single life. Rehabilitative alimony is another sort of temporary alimony. It is utilized by the spouse for education or vocational re-training skills. Lump sum alimony is a type of support that can be paid in a lump sum after the marriage is terminated. The party could take several months or years to pay it back if necessary. Durational alimony may be granted for a longer period of time. It is utilized when permanent alimony is not needed. If the duration of the marriage was 17 years or more, there may be a case for permanent alimony. This alimony is paid until either one of the spouses die. Permanent alimony also lasts until getting life partner remarries.
