Support Unconnected with Divorce


SUPPORT UNCONNECTED WITH DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE IN FLORIDA

Parents, whether married, separated, or divorced, are required to financially support their children. Similarly, if one spouse has the need for financial maintenance, and the other spouse has the ability to pay for that maintenance, a Florida court can order alimony, even if the parties are not divorcing. Family Diplomacy will guide you through the process of seeking support unconnected with dissolution of marriage.

REASONS FOR SUPPORT UNCONNECTED WITH DIVORCE

Unlike many states, Florida does not recognize the concept of legal separation. Yet, there are many reasons why couples do not want to go the route of divorce. An action for support unconnected with dissolution of marriage allows (i) a party to keep open the possibility of reconciliation, (ii) a parent to make sure his or her children are taken care of while the other parent is absent, or (iii) a party to stay in line with his or her religious beliefs. Family Diplomacy will help you determine whether an action for support unconnected with dissolution of marriage is right for you.
