When marriages end, spouses who stayed at home for many years might lack the ability to support themselves and maintain their standard of living. To rectify such situations, Florida has established various types of alimony, also known as spousal support or maintenance, which are payments to assist a husband or wife during and after a divorce. Whether a spouse seeks temporary support while the divorce is pending, funds to cover them while they restore their earning capacity, or long-term financial maintenance, we’ll outline the relevant factors that go into these decisions, such as the duration of the marriage. From there, we’ll assert your rights effectively whether you are the potential paying or recipient spouse.
As a husband-and-wife law firm, we understand that many divorce disputes can be worked out without the aggravation and expense of litigation. That’s why we are strong supporters of divorce mediation, where terms relating to property division, child custody, alimony and other concerns are resolved in a less formal setting. With the assistance of a qualified mediator, you and your spouse can maintain your control and privacy while reaching a consensus that respects both parties’ wishes. In addition to the advocacy we provide in this forum, attorney Jennifer Copus is a mediator certified by the Florida Supreme Court and can provide a comprehensive perspective on these proceedings.
