Child Support And Spousal Support

Child support and spousal support disputes present a number of challenges. Most likely, everyone wants to make sure the children are taken care of financially. But on the other hand, if you are the paying spouse, you also want to make sure you are not forced to overpay for support. And spousal support, also known as alimony, commonly brings up contention and hostility.

At Weaver & Dorfman, P.A., our lawyers bring more than 40 years of combined experience handling a range of divorce and family law matters, including spousal and child support issues. Attorney Charles Dorfman is a Florida Supreme Court certified family mediator, and we use this experience to help our clients find amicable child and spousal support solutions outside of the courtroom whenever possible. We are also prepared to take an aggressive approach to defending our clients’ interests in the courtroom when needed, as well. We represent clients in Melbourne and the surrounding parts of Florida, in child support, spousal support, modifications, enforcement and contempt.

Spousal Support And Child Support

Child support begins with Florida’s statutory guidelines and only get more complicated from there. Although these discussions start with statutory guidelines, there are frequently other issues that arise in individual cases.

Unlike child support, there are no guidelines for spousal support. Experienced divorce lawyers present the details of each party’s circumstances in support of or against an alimony award. Spousal support awards may be temporary, short term, in lump sum or periodic which may be limited or unlimited in duration. Spousal support can have a significant impact on both parties’ lives in the future.

At Weaver & Dorfman, P.A., we will take the time to analyze your financial situation and your goals to determine a sound strategy to obtain a favorable outcome for you and your family.
