Volusia County Alimony Lawyer
Are you wondering how to get alimony after a divorce, or how to prevent your ex-spouse from claiming more than he or she deserves? Legal and financial concerns like these are the province of experienced Volusia County alimony attorney Bradley S. Sherman.
At the Law Offices of Bradley S. Sherman, our trial lawyer has 15 years of experience. By reviewing the facts of your case and collaborating with forensic accountants when necessary, he can provide honest counsel about whether you have a strong or weak case for receiving alimony (technically termed “spousal support” in Florida).
Determining Alimony or Spousal Support Payments
Unlike with child support, there is no set formula for calculating alimony payments. Instead, it is based on a variety of factors, including the length of the marriage, the financial needs of the party requesting support and the ability of the other party to pay.
Judges are also required to divide all marital assets and debts before considering what constitutes an appropriate alimony award. Based on the facts of the case, a judge may award:
- Temporary or permanent periodic alimony
- Rehabilitative alimony
- Bridge-the-gap alimony
Don’t Pay Money for Legal Services You May Not Need
Many attorneys charge for legal services before they have conducted discovery and fully understand the strengths, weaknesses and requirements of the case. As a result, many clients overpay.
At our law firm, however, we believe you should only have to pay a lawyer for what you know you need. We do not demand a retainer for services that are not yet realized. Mr. Sherman will work hard to investigate your actual needs and forecast the services that will suit you best.
