Your Staunch Advocate During Alimony Negotiations

I am H. Stephen Hillebrand, Attorney at Law, and I have been representing individuals and their families in Florida for over three decades.

As part of my comprehensive family law practice, I help my clients reach fair, sustainable alimony arrangements after divorce proceedings have ended. I am qualified to advocate for you in court, in negotiations or in formal mediation sessions.

Alimony, often called spousal support, is often a highly contested issue. It is important to work with an attorney who is committed to helping you get the best result while minimizing the impact of this emotional time.

Important Considerations That Affect Alimony Payments

There are five primary types of spousal support in Florida:

  • Temporary
  • Rehabilitative/bridge the gap
  • Durational
  • Permanent
  • Lump sum

In recent years, there have been ongoing efforts to change Florida alimony laws to get rid of permanent alimony. I stay apprised of all recent developments in Florida family law so I can build the strongest case possible to pursue your interests.

As your lawyer, I can help you bring, or defend against, a spousal support claim or reach an alimony agreement that fits your circumstances after a divorce. Alimony varies greatly depending on a number of factors, including:

  • Length of your marriage
  • Your financial situation
  • Your lifestyle during the marriage
  • How much each spouse has contributed to the household in the past
