I only bring in 2100 a month vs my spouse brings in double that amount a month. I need help to start over, how does this work??
There are several different types of alimony, and how much/if you will be awarded alimony depends on the duration of the marriage, your need for support and their ability to pay the support. I would recommend making a budget and itemize the expenses you will have going forward, get a clear picture of what your needs will be post divorce. You should consult an attorney to review your case, they can let you know what your options are before you file.
There is a lot of necessary information missing from your posting. The duration of the marriage being at the top of the list. Alimony in Florida is governed by a specific statute that details the necessary findings to support a claim for continuing support inclusive of the multiple forms which may be awarded by the Court. I would urge you to seek a formal consultation with an experienced Family Law attorney in your local area. Many offer free consultations and will afford the opportunity for a more complete and coherent answer to your question. Best of Luck.
