What Is Alimony?


Also known as spousal support, an attorney such as Charles Erickson can uphold all aspects of alimony law in Florida to get you the support you need after your dissolution of marriage. He has a proven track record of success and has the skills needed to make sure that his clients are always protected throughout the entire lengthy and often stressful legal process. Alimony is paid by one spouse to another and is determined by whether or not the other spouse has sufficient income or assets to support themselves after the divorce. The health, age, and finance of that spouse, their standard of living while married, their earning ability, the length of the marriage, and the ability of the payer to support themselves are all considered when determining the payment amount. 

Different Types of Spousal Support

Alimony in Florida can be classified in many different types, all of which Charles Erickson understands fully and can negotiate the type that suits your situation best. Temporary alimony is given at the onset of divorce and can later be replaced by a different type of alimony. Bridge-the-gap alimony is transitional spousal support that is intended to help a spouse to go from being married to being single and to re-start a life. Rehabilitative alimony is to help a spouse to pursue schooling or other programs in order to obtain employment that will allow them to be self-sufficient.

Duration alimony is awarded for a short or moderate-term marriage (less than seven years) and is awarded as a set amount during a certain period of time not to exceed the length of the marriage itself. Lastly, permanent alimony is awarded to those who have a standard set by the married with necessities and cannot maintain that standard after divorce. If the person receiving alimony remarries, their alimony ends except with rehabilitative alimony.
