It is important to understand alimony in Florida and Florida Alimony laws when considering appealing a Judges ruling in Florida divorce case. Get educated.
My spouse received several million dollars worth of property and also received alimony! Can I file an appeal?
It depends. There is case law, especially in the Fourth District Court of Appeal of Florida, suggests that someone starts to lose their need for alimony once they receive at or over $2 million dollars in equitable distribution.
The amount of money someone receives in property distribution is relevant for several reasons. First, in many cases, the need for alimony goes down if property can be used to pay down debt and ultimately reduce a party’s living expenses. Furthermore, to the extent income can be earned off of assets received, a party’s need for alimony can be reduced.
