Tampa Alimony And Spousal Support Attorneys

Florida courts have the power to order alimony to be paid to either party in a divorce or dissolution. Alimony can be either ongoing or temporary and is highly fact specific.

At the Brandon Family Law Center, LLC, we protect our clients' interests, keeping in mind their long-term financial picture. Our founding attorney has been handling divorce cases that include tough property division questions and spousal support for more than 30 years. The choice of attorney makes a difference; find out what makes us different.

Factors That Affect Spousal Support

Alimony requires two factors: One side must have genuine need for support, and the other side must be able to afford it. Proving need and affordability is a large part of what a lawyer in an alimony or spousal maintenance decision must do.

Other questions asked at an alimony hearing include:

  • What standard of living are the two people accustomed to?
  • How long were they married?
  • How old are the parties? What kind of shape are they in emotionally?
  • What resources does each side have?
  • What contribution did each side make to the marriage?

Because all these areas require description, an articulate, persuasive attorney is a very valuable asset in an alimony hearing.
