Alimony Helping You Navigate Family Challenges & Changes

Clearwater Alimony Attorney

Addressing Your Spousal Support Concerns in Clearwater, St. Pete, & New Port Richey

Since married couples typically combine finances, the end of a marriage can raise questions about how each spouse will support themselves. Many marriages involve two working spouses who each earn an income, while other marriages involve one spouse who earns most or all of the income while the other cares for the couple’s home or children.

How Long Does Alimony Last in Florida?

The court awards persistent alimony, and payments can't last longer than the length of the marriage in Florida. According to the state, the law defines a short-term marriage as one lasting less than ten years, and an intermediate-term lasts at least ten years but less than twenty years.

How is Alimony Determined in Florida?

Alimony is a predetermined amount of money that one spouse pays to the other after a separation or divorce. A judge may award alimony to limit the economic blow that a divorce may impose on a spouse who has little or no earning power. If one spouse has little or no means to earn an income alone, he or she may need financial support after the marriage ends.

Alimony may be awarded to a wife or husband, depending on the case. Our Clearwater family law attorneys have assisted many families with their alimony and spousal support matters.

Alimony may be awarded in the following situations:

  • You were in school, and your spouse was supporting you
  • You took care of the family and children, and your spouse supported you
  • You do not currently have a job or a degree
  • Your spouse supported you for other reasons
