Alimony, better known as spousal support, is one of the many intricate issues you may deal with when facing a divorce. Whether paying or receiving, it must be a fair and reasonable amount that both parties can come to an agreement on.
Since there is no specific formula to calculate the amount of alimony you can receive in the state of Florida, the amount may be determined by agreement or by the court. Florida Statute 61.08 is used to help determine the amount of alimony awarded, taking into consideration the lifestyle during the marriage, the duration of the marriage, as well as the ability to pay.
Alimony is a complex issue in any divorce because there is no clear “black and white” formula for calculating alimony in the state of Florida. It is crucial that you hire an experienced divorce attorney.
