Alimony Enforcement and Modification Services
Alimony is designed to provide money for day-to-day expenses and is typically paid by one spouse to the other monthly. The goal is to secure the financial situation of the spouse who may struggle financially after a divorce.
There are several factors considered when determining a monthly alimony payment. Some of these include:
- The income of both individuals
- How long the marriage lasted
- The circumstances and age of both people
- Standard of living prior to the divorce
Seeking alimony or enforcing these payments requires an attorney with knowledge and resources. Our attorney at Griffin Family Law will help you show why you should receive alimony payments and how the spousal support will help you continue to enjoy the lifestyle you had before divorcing.
We can also help if you can no longer afford the alimony payments you have been instructed to submit. With a modification order, you can get this amount changed. Keep in mind for modifications to be successful; you must have evidence of your change in the situation. Our attorney will work to help you build a strong case to get the changes needed.
Child Custody and Child Support Enforcement and Modification
If you know divorce is where you are headed, it’s important to establish who will have custody of your child or children. Some parents create a parenting agreement for visitation and custody without input from the court. However, if you cannot make this agreement yourself, you can contact our legal office, and we will help represent you as you seek child custody or child support from the other parent. The Griffin Family Law attorney is familiar with the various custody laws in Florida and can help you with each step of the process.
It does not matter if you want to establish supervised visitation, custody, or increase child support; we can provide the assistance you need. If you are dealing with any type of child support situation, it is a good idea to have our attorney fighting for you and your rights.
Understanding How Child Support Is Determined in Florida
In some situations, child support payments do not have to end when a child reaches the age of 18. If you have a child who is still in school, then support payments may continue until they are 19 or high school graduation. Additionally, support may be long-term or even permanent for children with special needs.
Some of the other factors that will impact the child support payment amount include:
- The income of both parents
- The total number of children support is being paid for
- The percentage of time the child or children is in the care and control of each parent
If the non-custodial parent does not pay child support that the court has ordered, you get in touch with Griffin Family Law. If you leave enforcement to the state, it may take months to receive. At Griffin Family Law will begin working to find options to restore your payments as quickly as possible.
We understand how complicated some divorce cases can be. Regardless of what type of divorce you seek, you will have many issues to discuss and decide on through the process. We have the skills and resources to help with negotiations to help you achieve a desirable outcome for your case. In some situations, mediation is a smart solution, as it is faster and more affordable in many situations. However, if you aren’t sure, contact us. We can review your situation and help you choose what strategy is right for your situation.
