You’ve worked hard all of your life, you’ve earned, saved, and sacrificed to ensure you lead the lifestyle you deserve. Now, you’re facing divorce and unless you’re careful, you could lose all of your investments. As a man, you’re up against some serious Florida court bias towards women – a bias that could cost you financially.
What Is Alimony?
Alimony (spousal support) is a legal obligation to provide financial support to your spouse after a legal separation or divorce. The idea of alimony is to allow your ex-spouse to continue to live the lifestyle that he/she was accustomed to after divorce.
According to a recent study, “Thirty-three percent of higher-earning spouses are women, but fewer than four percent of alimony payers are women,” says Ned Holstein, president of Fathers & Families, a family-court reform organization in Boston, citing U.S. Census Bureau data. What does this mean for you? It means you need the right legal help from Kenny Leigh & Associates to help ensure your financial investments.
Men Receiving Alimony
New studies have shown a rising trend in women paying spousal support in part to an increased number of fathers serving as primary caregivers. It’s important to note that in the state of Florida, legally both women and men are entitled to alimony if there’s a large discrepancy in spousal income. So whether you are the household income provider or you’re the one who takes care of the home, it’s important to realize that you have rights too. The court systems – while still bias – are transitioning into a more fair ground of equal rights between the husband and wife.
