Pembroke Pines, FL Alimony Attorneys

Going through a divorce is difficult enough when two spouses earn the same amount, but especially when one spouse is financially dependent on the other, creating a financial imbalance that can be difficult to even out when a marriage comes to an end. While the state of Florida doesn’t enforce narrow restrictions around alimony, having a seasoned alimony attorney on your side can give you an advantage in reaching a more favorable outcome than if you were to handle matters yourself. If you’re a dependent spouse, afraid of how much and how long you’ll receive alimony during and after your divorce, our Pembroke Pines alimony attorneys are prepared to advocate for your rights and guide you through the steps of obtaining spousal support. Schedule a consultation at Divorce & Mediation Law Firm | Cabanas Law Firm today.

What Is Alimony?

In the state of Florida, alimony is a legal obligation that’s imposed by the court on one spouse to pay the other spouse financial support after marital separation or divorce. The courts will evaluate several different factors, like the duration of the marriage, earning capacities, standard of living, contributions to the marriage – both financial and nonfinancial –  age and health, marital misconduct, debts, and more. However, the two main factors they’ll focus on are the financial need of the dependent spouse and the other spouse’s ability to pay that amount, and the other factor is the length of the marriage. Alimony is now based on a statutory calculation that uses the parties’ net monthly incomes and the length of the marriage.

Under the new Florida alimony reform statute, a marriage of less than 10 years is a short-term marriage, a marriage of 10+ to just under 20 years is a mid-length marriage, and a marriage of 20+ years is a long-term marriage. Permanent alimony has been eliminated in the state of Florida. 

One thing to remember is that alimony may be modifiable, depending on the facts of your case. For example, your alimony can be increased or decreased based on a change in circumstances that was permanent or involuntary under appropriate circumstances. 

Do I Need An Attorney?

While hiring an attorney for your alimony case isn’t mandatory, it is in your best interest. If you forego professional representation, you might end up either paying more alimony than you should, or receiving less alimony than you deserve. No matter which end of the spectrum you’re on, both can have significant financial repercussions. An alimony attorney can provide evidence that helps you obtain maximum support, or prevent you from overpaying. They can also assist with the following: 

  • Legal advice and guidance
  • Case evaluation
  • Negotiations and strategy
  • Gathering and organizing documents
  • Communication
  • Enforcement
  • Modification
  • And more!
