Alimony - Standard of Living in Florida

Marital standard of living is not useful guide in awarding alimony where parties lived beyond their means "And, in this case, the marital standard of living was of little value in determining an appropriate alimony award as the undisputed evidence was that the marital lifestyle cost more than the parties' regular earnings and was funded, in part, by a sign-on bonus that had been spent by the time of the proceedings. See Nichols v. Nichols, 907 So. 2d 620, 623 (Fla. 4th DCA 2005) (recognizing marital standard of living is not useful guide in awarding alimony where parties lived beyond their means)." Cissel v. Cissel.
