Spousal Support, also known as Alimony, is awarded in Florida courts based on certain criteria including the length of the marriage and disparity in income between spouses. Understanding Florida alimony laws and making them work for you – is a strength of divorce lawyers of Schutz and White.
Florida primarily recognizes five types of alimony: temporary alimony, bridge-the-gap alimony, rehabilitative alimony, durational alimony, and permanent alimony.
Schutz & White defends and prosecutes Florida alimony claims—and has achieved great success with both. We specialize in complex alimony issues such as proving the income available to business owners, who are often capable of manipulating their financial records to avoid Florida alimony laws. When appropriate, Schutz & White engages accounting professionals to trace income and find hidden assets.
Alimony is enforceable by seeking a finding of contempt by the court. Alimony can be modified due to changed financial circumstances.
