Permanent Alimony

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.
