With alimony awards, one size does not fit all

It is not easy work for Florida residents to earn a living and provide for their family. The slightest disturbance in a person's income can drastically affect their ability to pay their monthly bills. This can be especially true following a divorce, when individuals may no longer have the income level they once enjoyed with their former spouse.

What type of alimony may be awarded by the court?

Every Florida resident is different from one another. It comes as no surprise then that every marriage is also unique, as couples find themselves facing different challenges, standards of living and other issues. And, of course, because every marriage is different, so too is every divorce.

Stay-at-Home Dads are Winning Custody Battles in Florida

For years, it has been assumed that mothers had the upper hand when fighting for custody in Florida courts. One reason was because, traditionally, fathers have worked to provide for the family while mothers have remained at home to take care of the kids. Courts have placed children with the mother while requiring the father to pay child support to make up for lost income in a divorce. 

When can alimony be awarded under Florida law?

As discussed in this blog last week, the outcome of a case can change drastically based on seemingly minor details. One such factor that can change matters right from the start of a case is where the case is filed, as different states have different laws that can impact the issues in the case.
