Alimony Attorney in Tampa Bay

Alimony in Florida

You may not have imagined that you would be going through the divorce process, but here you are.  You want to know how to protect your financial interests and whether you, or your soon-to-be former spouse, are entitled to alimony (also known as spousal support).  At The Law Firm of Adam B. Cordover, P.A., we will take the time to explain the likelihood of an award of spousal support in your matter.

Types of Alimony Awards

Florida provides for several different types of alimony awards.  We will guide you through the various awards whether you (i) have been in a long-term marriage and need long-term support, (ii) are planning on obtaining a degree so that you may become self-supporting, or (iii) simply need financial assistance from your spouse during the divorce proceedings.

Defending Against an Alimony Award

Florida statutes and case law outline specific circumstances where each type of alimony award may be appropriate.  So just because your spouse is requesting an award of spousal support, does not mean he or she is eligible.  At The Law Firm of Adam B. Cordover, P.A., we will develop a personally-tailored plan to maximize your chances of success in defending against or mitigating an award of alimony.  

Modification of an Alimony Award

Most types of alimony awards may be modified or terminated if there has been a substantial change in circumstances since the final judgment was originally ordered.  Whether your income has substantially increased, your former spouse’s income has substantially decreased, your former spouse is engaged in a supportive relationship, or there has been some other change, we can help you determine whether to seek a modification or termination of an alimony award.

Support Unconnected with Dissolution of Marriage

Florida allows one spouse to seek financial support from the other spouse without filing for divorce.  Contact The Law Firm of Adam B. Cordover, P.A., to determine whether you, or your spouse, are eligible for support unconnected with dissolution of marriage.
