The Standard of Living is an Important Factor an Orlando Alimony Lawyer Must Prove for a Court to Properly Calculate Alimony
We assist hundreds of family law clients every year. When a client has an issue involving alimony, one of the main questions we receive is how will the court calculate alimony. The answer is straight forward. Implementing the answer is where an Orlando alimony attorney comes into play.
All alimony questions should be answered by first looking at statute. § 61.08, Fla. Stat. instructs courts on how to calculate the type and amount of alimony that may be awarded to a spouse. The court is instructed to look at a number of factors to make this determination. The court must also make determinations regarding whether one spouse has a need for alimony, and whether the other spouse has a financial ability to pay alimony. These findings are very important. The findings must accompany any Final Judgment of Dissolution awarding alimony.
