Alimony Attorney

Frequently dealing with requests for alimony, I understand the complexities of spousal support and alimony awards arising from a divorce decree. With many years of practice in Fort Lauderdale as a divorce lawyer, I have significant experience with the various types of alimony under Fort Lauderdale law. Contact me for an analysis of your spousal support options.

I have secured several different types of alimony for many clients during my years as a divorce attorney in Fort Lauderdale. While alimony is not available in every case, you should consult an attorney knowledgeable about the various and sometimes complicated issues that surround an alimony case. Some types of alimony/spousal support include:

Rehabilitative alimony is designed to help a spouse become self supporting.

Permanent periodic alimony is generally paid on a monthly basis, may be deemed non-modifiable, has tax ramifications, and is terminable upon the happening of certain events.

Lump sum alimony is a specific sum certain paid either in a single lump sum or paid over time.

Temporary alimony, or stop-gap alimony, is generally awarded for the duration of divorce proceedings.

It is important to consult a knowledgeable spousal support attorney to gain a working understanding of the differences between these types of alimony and which may apply to your situation. I have a long track record managing spousal support matters for my clients, advising them on how length of marriage, cost of living, retirement assets, and the relative economic status of divorcing parties, can affect the alimony awarded.
