Shalimar Spousal Support Lawyer
Serving Clients Throughout The Florida Panhandle
Spousal support (still referred to by many people as alimony) is not considered child support. The courts determine whether spousal support is a fair part of a divorce judgment by looking at specific needs of one of the spouses, as well as the likelihood that the divorce is likely to leave one of the spouses at a decided financial disadvantage.
Some types of spousal support are:
- Permanent support, typically only awarded in the event of a long-term marriage in which one spouse did not work outside of the home for income and has few options for gaining income equality through the workplace
- Temporary support to bridge the gap between the spouse’s current income and increased income in the future
- Temporary rehabilitative support to provide money for job or skills training to back into the workforce
- Housing support to allow one spouse to remain in the family home for a period of time until the property must be sold and proceeds distributed per the terms of the divorce judgment

Spousal Support Modifications
Things change in people’s lives. Jobs are lost. Incomes decrease or increase. The courts make it possible to petition for a modification of your original spousal support judgment. Whether you are unable to meet your current obligations or you feel your award is insufficient to address the financial inequality resulting from your divorce, we can help.
Honest Representation to Help You Avoid Costly Litigation
Spousal support, child support and related modification requests are often the most contentious issues in a divorce. If you are in a dispute with your spouse, don’t let the issues develop to the point that a bitter court battle is your only choice of final resolution. Many support award and modification disputes can be resolved through methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), rather than a costly trial. Michael Leininger is a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator. Call us before your dispute spirals out of control.
