Alimony Where Strategy Meets Skill

Alimony Payments After A Divorce in Tampa

Alimony is a legal obligation that was designed for one spouse to financially assist the other after a divorce. At Rechel & Associates, P.A., we have helped people in the Tampa area and throughout Florida understand the alimony process and payments. Our lawyers have the experience necessary to help you negotiate a deal that is in your best interests.

The purpose of alimony is to help ease the economic transition of one spouse in the event of a divorce. The court takes a variety of factors into account when deciding alimony, such as:

  • The standard of living during the marriage
  • Length of marriage and age of spouses
  • Physical and emotional state of both spouses
  • Financial resources and earning capacity of both spouses
  • The time it would take to acquire education and training
  • The contribution of each spouse to the marriage, such as services rendered in homemaking, child care, education and career building of the other spouse

We will look at each factor of your case and work to seek you the best outcome possible.

Different Types Of Alimony

Alimony payments can be paid out in different increments in time, both in the short term and long term. The judge will look at the circumstances surrounding each divorce case and decide what the appropriate alimony (spousal support) payment is.

  1. Lump-sum alimony: The person receiving the alimony will receive one lump sum of money or property.
  2. Bridge-the-gap alimony: This alimony is used to help someone transition from married to single life. This can either be paid out in a lump sum or over a short period of time.
  3. Rehabilitative alimony: This alimony is paid over a limited period of time to help someone establish the capacity for self-support, either by redeveloping previous skills, or undergoing training or education necessary to develop supportive skills and gain financial independence.
  4. Durational alimony: This alimony is for a set amount of time, typically paid monthly or semimonthly and is awarded in moderate-term marriages and long-term marriages when permanent alimony is inappropriate.
  5. Permanent alimony: This alimony payment is typically received monthly or semimonthly until the person who receives it gets remarried or dies. It is awarded in long-term marriages.

Our No. 1 priority is making sure we design a strong legal strategy and employ our negotiating skills to help you reach your goals.
