Standing Up for Clients’ Rights in Spousal Support Determinations in Florida
Married spouses often divide household responsibilities in different ways. Both spouses may work, or one spouse may stay home and care for the children and household while the other is the primary financial supporter. A spouse may put their own education and career on hold to support the education and career of the other, among many other arrangements. When spouses get divorced, one spouse should not have to struggle due to a significant financial discrepancy between them during the marriage.
In some divorce cases, one spouse may qualify for alimony, which is also commonly called spousal support. This involves – often temporary – payments provided from one spouse to another until they can become sufficiently self-supporting. If you are requesting alimony or might need to pay alimony, you want a skilled spousal support lawyer in Boca Raton protecting your rights under Florida law. Contact the law firm of Juliana Gaita, P.A. for help with every aspect of your divorce and alimony case.
Florida Alimony Laws
Florida law allows for different types of alimony orders when warranted, including:
- Temporary alimony during the divorce process
- Bridge-the-gap alimony, which is short-term while a house sells or other financial matters get settled
- Rehabilitative alimony to support a spouse while they get training or education to obtain gainful employment
- Durational alimony that can last for the length of the marriage if rehabilitative alimony is not sufficient to support the spouse
- Permanent alimony, which is rare, aims to support a spouse who does not have the means to support themselves in the future, often due to age or health issues
