Orlando Rehabilitative Alimony Attorney
When two people decide to part ways, there are many issues that need to be resolved. Alimony is one of the issues that can cause a great amount of discord between divorcing spouses. Alimony, also called spousal support, is money that is provided from one spouse to the other during or after the divorce. Alimony allows for living expenses to be paid during and after the divorce. There are many questions regarding alimony, including how much money will be paid, how often it will be paid, and how long the alimony will last. There are three main types of alimony that may be considered. Each case is different and may provide a combination of alimony types.
- Temporary alimony
- Rehabilitative alimony
- Permanent alimony
Temporary alimony is generally provided for a short time while the divorce is being finalized. Permanent alimony is long-term spousal support. Rehabilitative alimony is money provided to one spouse while he or she is preparing to enter the work force.
Learning about Rehabilitative Alimony
The purpose of rehabilitative alimony is to provide a spouse with support while he or she goes back to school in order to ultimately obtain a job. Rehabilitative alimony is designed for spouses who have been out of the job market for some length of time, possibly while raising a family. After having been away from work for some time, many people need to take some refresher courses or improve their work skills in order to get back up to speed to get a job. Rehabilitative alimony is provided for a specific length of time while the other party is able to go back to work. Alimony allows the spouse the ability to continue to maintain his or her current standard of living while working towards a goal. The money may be used for living expenses, education expenses, or both. The alimony is no longer paid out once the spouse is able to become financially stable on his or her own.
Spousal support may or may not be a necessary part of your divorce. There are many factors that are taken into consideration when determining whether or not to award alimony (and if so, how much).
- Length of the marriage
- Standard of living
- Marital assets
- Marital liabilities
- Age and health of the parties
- Contributions made to the marriage by each party
- Ability of each party to be self sufficient
