The family law attorneys at Weiner & Weiss, LLC have extensive experience representing individuals who are seeking alimony or spousal support pursuant to divorce, as well as those who are contesting it. From our offices in Boca Raton, we serve clients throughout southeast Florida’s coastal communities in Broward and Palm Beach County.
Once a court decides equitable distribution, it may consider an alimony award for either the husband or the wife. There are four types of alimony awards in Florida:
Rehabilitative, permanent and durational alimony generally are paid periodically (monthly or semi-monthly), while bridge-the-gap support can be paid in a lump sum at one time, or may be paid over a very short period of time.
When awarding alimony, courts consider the following factors along with any other factors necessary to create a fair spousal support arrangement between the divorcing spouses:
At Weiner & Weiss, LLC, our divorce attorneys stay up to date on developments in Florida family law. For example, Florida recently defined short, moderate and long-term marriages for purpose of entitlement to support. A short-term marriage is one that lasted less than seven years; a moderate-term marriage is from seven to 17 years; and a long-term marriage is one which exceeds 17 years duration. The time period is measured from the date of the marriage to the date of filing the dissolution of marriage action.
If you are facing divorce and need assistance with alimony, we can provide the legal advice and counsel you need. Please contact Weiner & Weiss, LLC in Boca Raton to schedule a consultation.
