How Is Alimony (Spousal Support) Determined In Florida?
The court will consider several factors when determining whether to order alimony payments. They include:
- The length of the marriage
- The need for/ability to pay alimony
- The health of both parties
- The ability of both spouses to support themselves
Other factors could affect alimony, including child custody and child support. While there are specific guidelines for support obligations, judges have discretion when ordering alimony. We will work to protect your rights and make sure that a fair divorce settlement is reached.
