Florida Alimony Attorney Ensures Your Interests Are Protected

Knowledgeable lawyer helps clients in the Jacksonville area to achieve fair spousal support decisions

When you and your spouse divorce, there are a number of decisions that will have a long-term impact on your quality of life. Whether you and your partner try to negotiate an agreement on your own or take your disputes to a Florida court, the question of whether alimony should be provided can be highly contested. At Carolyn Wagner, Attorney & Counselor at Law, I have extensive knowledge of the laws governing spousal support and represent parties seeking payments as well as those who are being asked to provide them. No matter the particular circumstances, I work diligently to achieve an appropriate result for clients in the Jacksonville area and across Florida.

Committed Florida counselor looks out for clients’ financial security

When determining whether or not alimony should be granted, how much should be awarded and for how long, judges appraise various factors: the length of the couple’s marriage, their standard of living during the marriage, the relative income of each individual, and the needs of each spouse. Retaining a skillful alimony attorney can help you convince the court that you need support, increasing the chance that alimony will be awarded. Alternatively, I can also work to convince the judge that your ex does not need spousal support or needs less than he or she asked for.

I advise clients on the types of alimony that are relevant to their divorce, which may include:

  • Temporary alimony — Meant to provide support during divorce proceedings, temporary alimony helps recipient spouses address their financial needs until the case is resolved.
  • Rehabilitative alimony — To help a dependent spouse acquire or re-establish the skills they need to become self-reliant, rehabilitative alimony can be granted. This support may end when enough time has passed for the recipient to find a suitable job or complete their education.
  • Reimbursement alimony — These payments might be awarded to the spouse who worked, took care of the home or made other contributions while their spouse pursued professional training or career development. 
  • Permanent alimony — Permanent alimony may be given to a spouse who is seriously ill or who is unable for another reason to earn enough income to maintain their standard of living. It is more likely to exist at the end of a long marriage where one party didn't work outside the home. Despite the name, these orders are frequently modified due to changing financial needs or other circumstances.

At Carolyn Wagner, Attorney & Counselor at Law, I will work with you to determine what type(s) of alimony might be granted in your situation. From there, I'll advocate on your behalf to secure the best result possible. 

Committed attorney handles alimony disputes and revisions

My clients are often concerned about whether they will be required to pay alimony if their circumstances change. Others come to me if they are not receiving the alimony payments specified by the order. At Carolyn Wagner, Attorney & Counselor at Law, I petition the court for suitable revisions to alimony arrangements and assist clients with enforcement actions when the other party fails to pay on time or at all. No matter how complicated your situation, I will give you the support you need to pursue a positive outcome.
