When a person is going through a divorce most of them are confused about their exposure to paying or receiving alimony/spousal support. Having a competent attorney on your side to guide you through the process and explain the strengths and weakness of your case is essential to ensuring that your risks are minimized. Tim’s long experience as a litigator, Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediator and former Domestic Relations Court Magistrate can assist you this process.
If you believe that you may be at risk for paying alimony then you need someone that will work hard to ensure that you are not forced to pay more support than is reasonable or for a longer time than is reasonable. Let’s face it, there are some cases where we know that alimony has a very high probability of being ordered but, how much and what kind? There is permanent periodic, lump sum, durational, rehabilitative, pendente lite, and bridge-the-gap. Which one may apply to your case depends greatly upon a number of factors.
If you believe that you are entitled to receive alimony, it is just as important that you receive all that you may be entitled to receive. Perhaps you put off finishing school or you devoted a substantial amount of your time staying home to raise the children or to take care of the home while your spouse acted as the breadwinner for the family. You may be very concerned about your future finances because you have not developed a resume or work history. If so, Tim will use his experience to work with you and allay your fears to the best of his ability. You may need referrals for counseling or vocational training. Our office can provide you with information.
If success is to be reached, the attorney must have the ability to see the strengths and weakness of both sides. Tim will give you the information needed to understand your own case. He will work diligently to find the monetary settlement that you need or that sum which you can afford to pay in order to avoid the perils of litigation. If an acceptable settlement cannot be reached, you can trust that he won’t back down just to settle your case and move on to the next. His many years of experience make him comfortable in the courtroom. Rest assured that Tim will listen to you and give you his best advice. Your best interests will always be in the forefront.
