Is A Lump Sum Payment Right For Me?
According to Florida Statute § 61.08(1),
In a proceeding for dissolution of marriage, the court may grant alimony to either party, which alimony may be bridge-the-gap, rehabilitative, durational, or permanent in nature or any combination of these forms of alimony. In any award of alimony, the court may order periodic payments or payments in lump sum or both.
When deciding how to receive alimony payments, you need to consider a number of factors, including potential tax consequences, the financial ability of the paying spouse to pay a larger sum at one time, the financial needs of any children involved, etc. An experienced attorney can help you look over all potential options and come up with the solution that best fits your needs and puts you and your family in the best possible position moving forwards.
