Resourceful Legal Guidance In Family Law

alimony Archives

Husband of television actress seeking alimony

When a Florida couple decides to file for divorce, financial decisions are usually some of the most contentious topics. If spousal support, also known as alimony, comes into play, the discussions between the former couple may tend to become slightly more heated. This would be true for most couples, regardless of their jobs or financial status. It is certainly the case for one celebrity couple in another state.

Spousal support alone cannot help build a retirement fund

A significant number of divorces in Florida involve stay-at-home parents who typically lose their financial independence and have minimal opportunity to build retirement funds. Even if the other spouse is ordered to pay spousal support, the amount is generally based on living expenses. Alimony is often limited to a specific period to allow that person to prepare for re-entry into the job market.

New tax bill eliminates alimony deductions

For many Florida residents, having the ability to deduct spousal support from their taxes takes a bit of the sting out of those payments. Unfortunately, the newly passed and signed Republican tax bill eliminates the alimony deduction. This could change the divorce negotiation landscape for couples across the nation. 

An annulment eliminates any claim for spousal support

The vast majority of Florida residents who enter into marriage do so with a sincere intent to create a lifelong partnership. In some cases, however, it swiftly becomes apparent that the marriage is unsustainable. Faced with reality of the divorce, many people wonder if their circumstances make it possible to get an annulment. One benefit of an annulment is the elimination of any claim of spousal support by either party.
