When you hire an attorney, they will help you through the tedious process of creating and filing a Petition for the Dissolution of Marriage with the state, as well as outline the upcoming timeline to expect during the divorce proceedings, including:

  • serving your divorce petition to your spouse

  • assisting with the multitude of financial disclosure forms

  • negotiate with your spouse (and potentially their attorney) about divorce terms of any child custody related items, if applicable.

What Does The Court Factor In To Alimony?

Florida law provides for spousal support so that both parties in a divorce can have financial resources as they adjust to their new lives.

The courts consider many factors when determining alimony payments, including:

  • How long you were married and if either party was a stay-at-home spouse

  • Each party’s earning potential, including any necessary job training

  • The age and medical needs of both parties

  • The parties’ comparative income and assets
