We’ve worked hundreds of spousal support cases in Clermont, Lake County and throughout Central Florida and our experience in these matters can be put to work for you.

Working to come to a mutually beneficial settlement on alimony or spousal support can often be the best solution for a fair outcome for both parties. If you do not come to an agreement before it goes to the courts to decide, you may lose a great deal of control and be left at their mercy. This process can be very expensive for the spouse who will owe support.

If spousal support does go to the Courts in Florida to make a judgment, these are some of the factors they will consider in making a ruling:

  • Payments will be ordered by the courts in either periodic installments (monthly, weekly) or in a lump sum.
  • In making a determination on payments, the court may consider marital fault like adultery as a factor.

Economic factors that can determine spousal support in Florida:

  • The couple’s married standard of living
  • How long the couple was married
  • Each person’s age and health
  • The financial status of each spouse
  • The necessity of either spouse to acquire appropriate education or job training to find employment and a source of income
  • Each spouse’s marital contribution like child care, education, career assistance
  • Income sources for each spouse whether through employment, investments, property, inheritance or business interests
