Your guide to financial stability

Alimony is a court-ordered financial provision during divorce intended to address economic imbalances between spouses. In Florida, a state with a notably high divorce rate, a substantial percentage of divorce cases involve alimony considerations, emphasizing the prevalence of financial complexities in separation. Beyond its financial implications, alimony often amplifies emotional challenges, contributing to feelings of resentment, dependency, and financial stress. At Ostrovsky Law, we recognize the emotional toll associated with alimony cases. Our experienced team not only navigates legal intricacies but also provides compassionate support to guide you through emotional challenges.

Danielle M. Ostrovsky is the best family law attorney I have ever worked with. And let me tell you I tried a couple. Most of them were very negative and asked for a high retainer. Except for attorney Ostovsky.From our first meeting, she explained everything to me in terms I could easily understand (English is not my first language)and she was always very responsive when I had questions outside of our meetings. All you have to do just send her an email and she will respond to me in a very quick manner .If anyone is looking for a knowledgeable attorney at a great price, then I recommend her!.

Alimony FAQs

Alimony in Florida is determined based on need and ability. Need is whether the spouse that is requesting the alimony needs financial support to be able to live and pay their bills. Ability is whether the spouse that would be paying the alimony has the ability to pay alimony based on their income and other factors, such as prenuptial agreements.

The alimony law in Florida recently changed. Under the new law, the amount of an alimony award may not exceed the lesser of the payee spouse’s reasonable need or 35 percent of the difference between the spouses’ net incomes.

The alimony law in Florida recently changed. Under the new law, the length of an alimony award is limited based on the duration of the marriage, with certain exceptions. The length of an alimony award is different based on whether it is a short-term marriage, moderate term marriage and long-term marriage. Under the new law, there is no longer permanent alimony.

Alimony can be modified in amount and sometimes duration in certain circumstances depending on the type of alimony that was awarded. However, if a Marital Settlement Agreement was signed by the parties and it expressly states that alimony is non-modifiable, then alimony cannot be modified. There are certain factors that must be met in order to modify alimony such as a substantial change in income of one of the parties that was not contemplated at the time that the divorce was finalized.
