How Alimony Works
Spousal Support, also known as Alimony, is a payment to provide financial assistance or support to a former spouse.
It can be paid either by lump sum or on a continuing basis. Before alimony is considered, the court first must determine whether either spouse has a real need for alimony and whether either spouse can afford to pay alimony. If the court finds one spouse has a need for alimony and that the other spouse has the ability to pay, then the court considers the Florida Statutes section 61.08(2) to determine amounts, frequency of payments, or even if alimony is appropriate.
