Northwest Florida Spousal Maintenance Attorneys
At Ward & Ketchersid, P.A., we work to protect our clients' best interests in every legal situation. Our Destin law firm works to fully understand and accurately assess the full picture of each client's unique situation. This process is extremely important in developing and modifying spousal maintenance or alimony orders or agreements. In a divorce proceeding, the alimony determination will determine other issues such as child support and property division.
In Florida, several specific factors determine alimony payments, but the court ruling also depends on other factors that "further the goals of equity and justice." Our attorneys are experienced with advocating for our clients' best interests and aggressively pursuing opportunities that protect assets and uncover hidden assets.
Call us at 850-502-4756 or toll free at 877-732-9339 to schedule a consultation with a lawyer over the phone or face-to-face.

Factors in Alimony Decisions:
- Need and ability to pay
- Length of the marriage
- Standard of living during the marriage
- Age and physical/mental condition of both parties
- Financial resources available
- Income earning capacity
- Contribution to the marriage
- Responsibilities of each party to minor children
- Tax treatment and consequences of the alimony award
The options and determining factors of alimony awards can become complex rather quickly, especially when higher income earners are involved. We can help you navigate the system and fully evaluate the most effective strategies in your case. We also assist clients in modifying alimony orders or agreements due to substantial changes in circumstance such as job loss, increase or reduction in income, relocation, medical conditions, and other factors.
