The legal basis for alimony in a Florida divorce

When residents of central Florida decide to end their marriages, one of their most urgent questions is whether the court will award alimony to themselves or the other party. A wife who obtains physical custody of the children wants to know whether her ex-husband will be ordered to pay her alimony, whereas the same ex-husband may worry that the court will order him to pay an excessive amount of alimony. The grounds for an award of alimony in a Florida divorce are not specific, but an understanding of the essential legal reasons for granting alimony should soften or eliminate most of these worries.

Alimony awards in Florida explained

Alimony is one of the top concerns likely on the minds of divorcing couples here. Alimony payments are payments one of the former spouses makes to the other following the divorce, which is why most divorcing couples will want to understand the ins-and-outs of how alimony is determined in our state.

Bankruptcy myths you should not believe

Many Florida residents currently live paycheck to paycheck. It may not take much -- one emergency, one serious illness, one unexpected expense -- to cause them to lose everything. If you find yourself one of the many who are struggling to keep finances under control, know that various debt relief options may be open to you -- such as bankruptcy.

Annulling a marriage in Florida

A divorce is the most common method of ending a Florida marriage. What many Floridians do not understand is that some marriages are void at the beginning and are never valid in the eyes of the law. These marriages can be ended by annulment instead of divorce, that is, a legal ruling that one or both of the spouses did not have the lawful capacity or give proper consent to marry the other.

Understanding visitation rights in Florida

When a couple in our state has one or minor children and then decide to end their marriage, they must arrange adequate and convenient times for each parent to spend time with the child. This is a serious and often complicated issue. Fortunately, Florida law provides very clear guidelines for visitation by the non-custodial parent.
