You've worked hard for yourself and for your marriage. But the countless hours spent earning, saving, and sacrificing can all be for nothing if the divorce settlement doesn't go your way. Unfortunately, Florida courts lean towards awarding women an unfair amount of alimony payments, often leaving men with little income left to support themselves.

To make sure your divorce doesn't cost you too much financially, turn to Kenny Leigh & Associates. We have become a trusted alimony lawyer in Gainesville, FL, because we understand every facet of divorce law and use our extensive expertise to work towards the fair outcome our clients deserve.

Alimony is different from child support. It's used as spousal support and meant to help the spouse who earns less or who is the homemaker live the lifestyle he or she is accustomed to until they can pay for that lifestyle themselves. However, many times alimony is simply awarded to the woman, even if she happens to be the higher-earning spouse. If you feel you are entitled to post-divorce financial support or simply feel that no alimony is necessary for either party, it's time to hire an alimony lawyer.

You Have Rights to Spousal Support Too

As a rising number of fathers serve as the primary caregivers in marriages, there has been a trend of women paying more post-separation support than they used to. There is no law that prohibits men from receiving alimony, so it's important that you know what rights you have.

Alimony should only be awarded when there's a large income discrepancy between the two parties. Perhaps you gave up your career to be a stay-at-home dad. Or maybe you got married to a woman with a large income and you both invested a lot of money in your property and other assets that need to be maintained financially. You didn't know you would be in this situation now, and it would be unfair to take away your quality of life after the sacrifices you've made. Our alimony lawyer works with you to find a fair payment system and then fights to ensure your rights are upheld.
