Alimony was designed to support a financially dependent spouse during and after a divorce until the recipient becomes self-sufficient. The amount and duration of available alimony varies greatly for each couple. Determining what works best for you requires the attention of an experienced, knowledgeable lawyer.
My name is David B. Mitchell, and I have more than 30 years of experience working with Miami-area families of many different financial backgrounds as they negotiate their spousal support agreements. Most people think alimony falls into two categories: temporary and permanent. In Florida, alimony generally falls into four categories. These include:
Deciding which option is best for you will depend on a variety of factors such as the length of your marriage and the needs and financial ability of each spouse. I will carefully evaluate your family finances as I learn about your goals and concerns for the future. We will work together to form an alimony structure that supports your best interests and helps you maintain a financial stability.
Should you experience a significant life change that requires you to make a modification to your existing spousal support agreement, I am available to help you renegotiate or litigate this matter. In cases where the paying spouse is not holding up his or her end of the agreement, I can help you secure an enforcement order.
