Understanding Alimony in Bradenton Divorce Cases

When clients choose us as their Bradenton family and divorce attorneys, they will often want to know whether they’re going to pay or receive alimony, and what the amount will be. It’s important to know that there is no guarantee that alimony will be awarded. You should also know that there are many, many factors that will determine alimony.

If you are requesting payment, for example, your family and divorce attorneys in Bradenton FL will have to prove not only your need, but the ability of your ex-spouse to pay as well.
