Spousal support payments aren't automatic in Florida

When you have counted on your spouse for the majority of the income in the house, there is a chance that you are worried that you will be left high and dry during the divorce. Alimony orders are one way that people who have relied on a spouse for money might be able to keep up with the costs of living.

Alimony payments aren't automatic in Florida. Instead, you must petition the court for these payments. Your now-ex might fight against these payments. If it comes down to the court deciding about alimony payments, there are several different things that are considered. These include the length of the marriage and the possibility of you supporting yourself.

We know that most people who get divorced don't want to count on an ex for financial support. If you find that you do need to seek these payments, we can help you to learn what you need to do to show your side of the petition. We can help you fight every step of the way for the spousal support payments that might help you to start out your new life.

There is a always a chance that you or your ex could come back after the divorce and try to get the alimony payments changed. You should always remember that this is a possibility. You should also make sure that you remember the terms of the alimony payments. Some alimony orders have time limits. Others might stop if you get married or cohabit with another adult with whom you are in a relationship.

We can help you to fight for the alimony payments. We can also help you to understand the orders and seek modifications if you feel one is warranted.
