Most people think of alimony as the monthly payment of money from a person to their former spouse. While this is how some alimony arrangements work, alimony can look very different based on the needs of the involved parties. This post will discuss some of the forms that alimony can take on in Florida; however, it does not offer legal advice but provides information about alimony options in Florida. The facts and circumstances of different divorce cases will greatly impact if alimony is awarded and what form it will take on.
To some, making important financial and personal decisions about how their divorces will proceed even before they are married may seem fatalistic or even depressing. For others, having these and other matters addressed prior to their wedding dates can provide security and peace since they know that they have communicated with their partners about important decisions. Floridians who want to learn more about prenuptial agreements can discuss them with their family law attorneys, but readers should know that some topics cannot be addressed in premarital agreements and contracts.
