Tampa Alimony Lawyer
Free Consultation · Credit Cards And Payment Plans · Se Habla Español
Alimony was once very common in most divorces in Florida. However, over the past several decades, judges only consider awarding spousal maintenance when it is clear that the divorce will result in a clear financial disadvantage for one of the parties, usually in cases of long-term marriages.
In some marriages of brief duration (less than 10 years), one party may demonstrate financial hardship in securing a place to reside or employment because of lack of job skills. In such cases, temporary spousal support may be awarded, allowing the party to remain in the house for a pre-determined period of time or receive alimony while attending training or college required to find employment.
