Comments



Alimony is referred to by many different names, including spousal support or maintenance. Alimony may be awarded to a spouse in a divorce when they believe that they have a need for financial assistance and the other party has an ability to pay. It can be awarded as temporary, until the final divorce hearing is held, or it can be “permanent”. “Permanent” alimony may be awarded after a long term marriage (17 years or more), a moderately long marriage with certain circumstances, or a short marriage with exceptional circumstances. It may be periodic or lump sum.  If permanent alimony payments are not appropriate, durational payments might be awarded to provide economic assistance for a set period of time not to exceed the length of the marriage. The court also may award rehabilitative alimony, based upon a plan for education or training a spouse to re-enter the workforce.

Alimony payments can be paid directly to a spouse or deducted and paid through Florida Child Support Enforcement. Also, if you have been receiving health insurance through your spouse’s employer, you may also be eligible to receive continued coverage (usually lasting eighteen months).

Testimonials

I wanted to thank the Draper Law firm for representing me in my recent personal injury case. It was truly a pleasure and honor to work with the firm, and I had a wonderful experience working with the staff, who was very friendly and courteous throughout the entire process.
 
The quality of legal service more than exceeded my expectations. The attorney answered all my questions, treated me with respect, and explained every detail - every step of the way. This was important to help me understand the process. In fact, I was made to feel like "part of the family" from the very first appointment.
 
I would definitely recommend the staff of attorneys at Draper Law Office to anyone who is seeking legal services, as I believe they, too, will have a great experience. In addition, should I ever need services again, Draper Law Office will be my first call.
 
Once again, I thank you and your staff for a wonderful and seamless experience; I would like others to also learn about it so they too can benefit from such great service.
