How does alimony work in the state of Florida?

You are getting a divorce and you want to know what your financial picture will look like when all is complete. Planning ahead is good, particularly if you are not sure if your dissolution settlement will include an alimony order. In the state of Florida, the awarding of alimony certainly is a possibility; however, every divorce case is different, and there are no guarantees that a judge will award it.

Florida judges generally devote a substantial amount of energy into devising an order for child support that will serve the child's best interests and be fair to both parents. Sometimes, however, the parents' or the child's circumstances change after an order for child support is entered, and the change in circumstances may motivate one of the parents to seek a modification of the original order.

Alleged drunk driver charged with killing two pedestrians

Proving paternity in Florida

In Florida, a child born to a man and woman who are married is conclusively believed to be the biological child of the man. Unfortunately, children who are born to women who are not married may not have a clear idea of the identity of their father. Without a determination of paternity, such children may live in poverty with their mother because the unknown father cannot be ordered to pay child support. In order to close this gap in the family welfare net, the state has established judicial procedures for determining the identity of a child's father.
