Alimony:

Alimony consists of payments for support to a spouse either in a lump sum, periodic payments, or both. Alimony can be permanent in nature or durational, giving the spouse receiving the alimony an opportunity to become self-supporting. In deciding on an award for alimony, the courts look at various economic factors, the standard of living during the marriage, the duration of the marriage, the age and physical and emotional condition of the parties, the financial resources of the parties, and the contributions to homemaking, child care and career-building. For durational alimony, the courts also look at the time necessary for job training. Allow our Daytona Beach Attorneys to assist you in determining if alimony is available to you or if you have a valid defense against having to pay alimony.
