Filing for divorce causes spouses to consider all the ways this process could impact them in the future. While going from the married life to the single life is a huge emotional step, the financial future of a spouse tends to be in the forefront of some Florida couples ending their marriage. For those involved in a wealthy marriage, it can be difficult to imagine a life no longer surrounded by the same things. Because of this, some divorcing spouses request alimony as a way to secure a future that resembles his or her married life.
The spouse that was not the dominant wage earner in the marriage commonly requests alimony. It serves as a mechanism to ensure he or she can afford their post-divorce life and maintain the lifestyle they enjoyed during the marriage.
