There are certain events in life that can spark major financial decisions, and divorce is one of them. Spouses in Florida and elsewhere are not only concerned about the cost of this process but also about what assets and property he or she will recover during the process and how he or she will maintain a healthy financial life post-divorce. For some divorcing spouses, it can be extremely stressful and worrisome because he or she knows that it will be tough to get by in their newly single life. In these cases, it is often beneficial to request alimony as a means to ensure that they can maintain the lifestyle they had during a marriage in his or her post-divorce life.
Spousal support can be a very beneficial financial award to recover during dissolution. It could be the difference between being able to meet basic living needs and not. For some spouses, it provides the ability to maintain a sometimes lavish lifestyle he or she was accustomed to during a marriage. No matter the financial situation enjoyed by a spouse during marriage, requesting alimony can help secure a healthy financial future following a divorce.
