Pembroke Pines Alimony Attorney

About Spousal Support in Broward County and Surrounding Areas

In a proceeding for dissolution of marriage, the court may grant alimony to either party. Alimony may be rehabilitative or permanent in nature. In any award of alimony, the court may order periodic payments or payments in lump sum or both. The court may consider the adultery of either spouse. In all dissolution actions the factors that the court must consider in deciding whether to award or deny alimony include the following:

  • What standard of living the couple established during their marriage
  • How long they were married
  • How old each spouse is
  • The physical and mental condition of each spouse
  • Each spouse's financial resources and sources of income
  • The division of assets to each spouse, as well as the division of debts
  • How long it may take for a spouse who has been financially dependent on the other to acquire the education or training necessary to secure suitable employment
  • What contributions each spouse has made to the marriage (note that this includes not only monetary contributions but also the value of services rendered as a homemaker and parent and in supporting the other spouse during career building
