Can a dependent spouse be forced to work in Florida?

It is unlikely that court will force anyone to work in Florida. However, if you spouse is voluntary underemployed or unemployed, what the courts are going to do is they’re going to go back and figure out exactly how much he or she could be making, and they will impute that income to them.    

Another thing that courts usually do is if that spouse has never worked, they will impute minimum wage to that spouse.
