Alimony Attorneys

Whether you are in need of a divorce, or have a final judgement that
needs tweaking, Our experienced family attorneys are here to help.



Dissolving your marriage often means a change in financial circumstances for one or both parties. Alimony may be awarded to a party in order to help maintain a certain standard of living. Some reasons for this include but are not limited to being the lower wage earner or being a stay-at-home parent.

Our experienced attorneys can advise you on the entire alimony process including possible payment amounts, durational alimony, or permanent alimony. When an agreement cannot be reached, the court will decide if alimony is necessary and specify an amount.

    How long is Alimony paid for?

    Following Florida’s family laws, Alimony or spousal Support may be granted temporarily and is frequently paid for a predetermined time. By agreement of the parties, Alimony or maintenance may also be renegotiated or left unchanged. How long you were married is one of many variables affecting maintenance length.

    Can Alimony be changed?

    In Florida, unless the parties agree otherwise, the court can change maintenance. The parties may decide upon the amount and duration of maintenance. If maintenance can be changed, it will remain changeable (unless later on it is terminated or the parties agree to something else).

    Alimony vs Child Support, what’s the difference?

    Both maintenance and child support payments support the necessities of a family, but they are based on two legal frameworks. The amount paid for one payment can affect the amount of the other, even though each payment is distinct from the others.

Do Mothers Always Get Custody of the Kids?

Contrary to popular belief, mothers do not automatically get custody of the children in a divorce. The courts in Florida make custody decisions based on a comprehensive evaluation of the factors that impact the child’s wellbeing. As a custody attorney, I’ve seen firsthand how fathers can successfully obtain joint or even primary custody when they are able to demonstrate their parental fitness and commitment to their children.
