When a couple is married, they become accustomed to the same standard of living. After the dissolution of a marriage, one party may find that their standard of living has significantly decreased and they may seek spousal support (or alimony) payments from their ex-spouse. This is designed to provide dependant ex-spouses with reasonable financial assistance. A family lawyer such as Mike Duncan can help you determine the appropriate alimony payment amount and fight for your alimony settlement in court, if necessary. Duncan Trial & Mediation assists clients dealing with a variety of family law-related issues in the greater Jacksonville area including Duval County, Nassau County, and Saint Johns County, Florida.
Alimony is determined after a thorough analysis of the finances of both parties.
The financial standard of living during the marriage
The income and earning potential of each ex-spouse
The length and history of the marriage
The age and employment history of both parties
