Treating You Fairly
It is the job of the court to award alimony based on equality. Payments are made from one spouse to another under a separation or divorce order. The purpose is to help an economically disadvantaged spouse continue to enjoy a similar standard of living after the marriage ends. However, what both parties consider fair is often subject to heated debate and may be why many couples remain unhappily wed. Courts have broad discretion to tailor support awards to each family’s needs. We are here to support you with your divorce in Florida and alimony. Our legal team will help ensure you don’t pay more than you owe or get less than you deserve.
