Dedicated Divorce Support

How a divorce process unravels will depend on the specific situation of every couple. Those who broke up amicably can fast-track the divorce proceeding, while others may get into a contentious process of dealing with sensitive issues that affect the couple and their whole family.

Alimony & Spousal Support

Whether you are the one asking or required to pay alimony or spousal support, the Palm Beach divorce lawyers at The Law Office of Verna Popo can skillfully ease and quicken the process.

There are five types of alimony in Florida that you can receive or be required to pay during or after the divorce:

Temporary support is a type of alimony given during divorce proceedings. This will help the lower-earning spouse to remain financially stable while the divorce is still pending. Once the divorce is finalized, the paying spouse will stop providing temporary support.

Bridge-the-gap alimony is a type of support that aims to help the recipient spouse in meeting legitimate short-term needs as they transition from being married to single. These needs may include paying bills while the spouse waits for the marital home to sell, or paying for daily living necessities while still looking for a full-time job. This type of alimony has a maximum duration of 2 years and will be terminated if the paying spouse dies or the receiving spouse remarries.

Rehabilitative support is the most common type of alimony in Florida. It is awarded if a spouse can fully support themselves but will still need time and financial assistance to redevelop the skills and refresh the knowledge needed to be back into work and become self-sufficient again. An articulate rehabilitative plan will be reviewed by the court before this support is awarded.

Durational support is similar to rehabilitative support but with a duration set by the court, and no rehabilitative plan is necessary for assessment. It is awarded if the receiving spouse needs financial support after the divorce but is not eligible for permanent alimony. Also, durational support will not exceed the length of the marriage. This means that if you’ve been married for five years, the maximum duration of this alimony is also five years only.

Permanent alimony is a type of support that rarely gets awarded. The court will only order this alimony if the receiving spouse doesn’t have the capacity to become self-sufficient in the future. Permanent alimony typically only gets awarded to spouses who have disabilities, are of old age, or care for a minor child with special needs. The length of the marriage will also play a factor in the court’s decision about the necessity of permanent alimony.

Asset & Property Division

Lots of conflicts arise when it comes to asset and property division, especially if the divorcing couple has bigger assets to divide, but you don’t have to worry.
