Who gets spousal support in Florida and why?
Spousal support, further, is based on the need and the ability, the need of the requesting party and the ability of the paying party. The first thing you need to prove is your need if you are the requesting party. Once that is proven, then you move forward with the second prong, which is the ability of your spouse to make that payment. If you can’t prove your need, that is where it stops. The judge will not move to the second prong.
Now, there are different types of alimony. Please discuss it with your attorney to figure out exactly which type of alimony you are entitled to.
