A recent Huffington Post Divorce article outlined ten things that a party should consider before filing for divorce. The fourth thing to consider, as suggested by the author of the piece, is your financial future.
As part of every Florida divorce case, each party has to file a financial affidavit. The financial affidavit is important in helping both parties take a look at what their finances are, and how much money they need to live. If the parties have been married long enough, and there is a difference between their incomes, alimony may be appropriate. There are a few different types of alimony to consider, and each has its own requirements. Contact an expert Tampa family law attorney to discuss if alimony is a possibility in your family law case.
