Ensuring Financial Security After A Divorce Through Alimony

Rarely are things entirely equal in a marriage. One spouse may make more than the other, and one spouse may have made significant sacrifices in education or career for the sake of the marriage. When the marriage ends, one may be left at a severe disadvantage in earning potential and income.

If you are facing a divorce and this is your situation, contact an experienced and aggressive divorce and alimony attorney. There is no guarantee that a court in Florida will award you spousal support or alimony payments.

Spousal Support Solutions To Bridge The Gap Between Marriage And Self-Sufficiency

At Cofiño Trial Law, our legal team works diligently to protect the financial interests of our clients and help ensure that they are provided the amounts of alimony they deserve. Whether you are seeking spousal support or looking to protect yourself from an unfair spousal support obligation, we can help you.

The most common forms of alimony currently are:

  • Temporary alimony
  • Rehabilitative alimony
  • Short-term alimony
  • Long-term alimony
  • Permanent periodic alimony

Fewer and fewer courts are awarding permanent or periodic alimony following a divorce proceeding. The trend is for judges to provide alimony payments for a set period of time, focused on getting the supported spouse to a place where he or she is independent and self-sufficient.

While a judge will look at a range of variables, including duration of the marriage, age and health of the spouses, earning potential, education, career opportunities, special needs and the sacrifices made by each of you, you will still need a champion on your side, fighting for your rights. It is important that you have a lawyer who understands this decision-making process and can present your case in the most effective manner possible.
