Gainesville Alimony Attorneys

Handling Spousal Support Cases in North Central Florida

Alimony is intended to provide financial assistance to a spouse to ensure a particular standard of living following divorce. It may be ordered for a brief amount of time to allow a spouse to complete education or training, or it could be permanent. Our alimony attorneys in Gainesville can help you better understand how spousal support is determined in divorce cases.

What Florida Courts Consider When Determining Alimony

Florida courts have a great deal of leeway when determining alimony — more so than child support. The courts may not order spousal support at all. This is a complex issue that can spark heated disputes and requires the services of a trusted Gainesville alimony attorney.

Florida law has identified several types of spousal support, ranging from “bridge-the-gap” payments that last two years or less to a lump sum payment or permanent alimony.

The court considers several factors when determining the amount and the duration of spousal support, including:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The standard of living set during the marriage
  • The age of each party, as well as their physical and mental health
  • Each party’s financial stability and earning potential
  • Each party’s assets and liabilities
  • The contributions of each party to the marriage, including providing primary childcare
