When a marriage comes to an end, one spouse may be left in a position in which they are unable to provide for the necessities of life. Before seeking divorce, a person may wonder: How will I support myself without the assistance of my spouse? The answer is alimony. Although Florida laws have progressively attempted to limit a person’s right to receive alimony, especially permanent periodic alimony, residents of Florida still have rights to alimony in certain circumstances. If you are thinking about divorce, but worry about how you will financially provide for yourself after or during the divorce, it is important to discuss your alimony rights with a qualified and experienced Florida family law attorney.
Divorce can be a frightening experience, especially if you do not know how you will support yourself during or after the divorce. If you or someone you know are in this position or fear that you will be, then it is time to discuss your situation with a family law attorney.
