Last week we discussed the basics of alimony in Florida. We covered what factors a court takes into consideration when deciding if alimony is appropriate, as well as the different types of payment options.
Although we often talk about specific cases of divorce, it's also important to discuss the actual laws behind the process. One issue that Florida residents are often curious about is alimony (or spousal support). Many questions may arise, such as "Do I have to pay it?" or "How much will I get?"
Our Fort Lauderdale readers may be interested to hear about a recent feud between a man and his ex-wife that centers around property division and alimony payments. Before getting married, the two signed a prenuptial agreement that excluded inheritances and gifts from division during a divorce. It also excluded any financial growth in any business brought on by their independent efforts.
