Divorce & Alimony

In a divorce case, a party may claim Alimony from the other party. Alimony is a form of financial support that one party seeks from the other. In general, Alimony is dependent upon the length of marriage, the financial need of the parties and the financial abilities of the parties. There are different forms of Alimony that apply depending upon the particular circumstances of the divorce case. In Florida, Alimony is governed under Florida Statute 61.08. The types of Alimony the court can award consist of the following: bridge-the-gap, rehabilitative, durational, or permanent in nature or any combination of these forms of alimony.

Equitable Distribution in a Florida Divorce
In a divorce case, the court is required to set apart to each spouse the spouse’s non-marital assets and liabilities and is required to distribute marital assets and liabilities between the parties. In general, a marital asset is one that was acquired during the course of the parties’ marriage and a marital liability is, in general, a liability that was also acquired during the course of the parties’ marriage. The distribution of assets and debts is governed by Florida Statute 61.075.

Children and Divorce

When minor children are present in divorce cases, the court is required to determine the type of parental responsibility that shall apply. The court can order the parties to have shared parental responsibility, which means that the parents shall have an equal say in major matters pertaining to the children such as educational, medical, religion and other significant matters pertaining to the children. If the court determines that shared parental responsibility is detrimental to the child and is not in the child’s best interest, the court can award sole parental responsibility. This means that the parent being awarded sole parental responsibility can make all decisions regarding the child without obtaining the other parent’s approval or consent. In addition to determining the appropriate parental responsibility, the court is required to enter a parenting plan that addresses many issues. In general, the parenting plan sets forth the type of parental responsibility, establishes the time sharing (custody) schedule between the parties, establishes a holiday schedule and addresses other significant matters regarding the co-parenting of the minor child or children.
Additionally, the court is required to address the issue of child support when minor children are present in a divorce case. In general, child support in Florida is dependent upon the time-sharing (custody) schedule and dependent upon the parties’ income. Child support is calculated pursuant to a guideline that is set forth in Florida Statute 61.13.
