Alimony can be confusing for spouses to understand without the proper context. As the law which created alimony also stated that a wife gave up all property to her husband upon marriage, it only seemed fair that the husband should offer back a certain sum to support an otherwise penniless spouse as a continuation of the financial side of marriage. In modern American society, permanent alimony does not seem to work out so clearly. With multiple-income households and no law to require spouses to completely surrender their property to each other, permanent alimony can seem much less straightforward.
If you are considering divorce and have questions about how spousal support may be figured or how it may affect the proceedings, contact the West Palm Beach permanent alimony lawyers of Michael S. Dyer, P.A. at 561-801-6453 – Palm Beach or 813-699-3565 – Tampa.
Permanent alimony works in the following ways in Florida:
- the person granted alimony may lose payments if they remarry
- the person paying alimony may continue paying even after death
- maintains the spouse’s pre-divorce lifestyle
- paid at regular rates and intervals
- failure to pay can incur strict legal penalties
- may be modified
Alimony is rarely granted to couples who have not established their lifestyle, meaning that spouses who have any question regarding these matters should speak to an experienced legal professional as soon as possible.
