In any divorce, alimony is typically the most contentious issues next to child custody. Judges in Florida spend a great deal of their time resolving disputes related to unpaid alimony or former spouses making the case for why the court should terminate future alimony payments.
Needing to pay alimony can be a significant burden on the party who has to pay. However, it is essential so that the spouse making less money can still maintain a manageable lifestyle. Judges must look at various factors to determine how much alimony is fair and how long the spouse should pay it out for.
