Jacksonville Permanent Alimony Attorney
Will alimony be awarded in your divorce?
If you are getting a divorce, you and your spouse will need to consider
each other's financial situations, and this will be done with the
utmost attention to detail. If one spouse has significantly less financial
resources than the other, the court may decide to award permanent alimony
in order to "provide for the needs and necessities of life as they
were established during the marriage."

Understanding Permanent Alimony Awards
In Florida, permanent alimony may be awarded to provide for the necessities
of life as they were established during the marriage when one spouse is
financially incapable of providing for their needs after a divorce.
Permanent alimony may be awarded in marriages of short to long duration.
A court may order permanent alimony when it determines that no other form
of alimony is reasonable considering the circumstances of both parties.
An award for permanent alimony terminates upon the death of either party,
or upon the remarriage of the receiving party. Further, an award for permanent
alimony may be
modified or terminated if one of the parties experiences a substantial change in
circumstances, or if the receiving party
enters into a supportive relationship.
