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."

If you are seeking a divorce, it would be in your best interests to speak with a Jacksonville divorce lawyer from Hutchinson Law. We provide honest advice and realistic solutions; we genuinely care about our clients' happiness, wellbeing, and financial futures.

  • We educate our clients so they can make informed decisions.
  • We are 100% committed to client satisfaction.

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.

Choose the Right Jacksonville Divorce Lawyer

When filing for divorce, your choice of an attorney is important and can have a direct impact on the course of your divorce proceedings, and the outcome. If there is a strong possibility that your divorce case will involve permanent alimony, you need a compassionate and knowledgeable attorney ensuring that your rights are zealously protected.

If you are getting a divorce, contact Hutchinson Law to schedule a consultation. Let us help reduce the stress and anxiety of divorce, and help you gain a sense of control over the outcome.
