Spousal Support

 

Spousal Support Under Florida Law

 

Finding the right South Florida divorce attorney is key to getting the best possible outcome for spousal support. The consideration for determining whether and how much spousal support may be required is one spouse’s financial need balanced against the other’s ability to pay.

 

Calculating Spousal Support in Florida Divorce Cases

 

If the divorce will leave one spouse with very little income and the other with sufficient income to contribute support, generally the court will award support. In the classic case, spousal support is awarded to a homemaker who has put his/her career on hold for the benefit of the family and paid by the wage-earning spouse who has worked during the marriage and enjoyed the benefit of a steadily increasing income.

 

In short-term marriages of say less than ten (10) years, that assistance may continue for a period equal to one-half the duration of the marriage. That period is loosely calculated to enable the recipient spouse to further his/her education, receive job training and reestablish him/herself in the workforce. For longer term marriages of say fifteen (15) years or more, such rehabilitation may not be possible and support may continue indefinitely. No two parties’ circumstances are the same and thus support amounts and durations tend to vary.
