Alimony in Palm Beach County, Florida

Alimony - Imputation of Income in Florida A spouse claiming income should be imputed to an unemployed or underemployed spouse must show that the unemployed or underemployed spouse is employable and that jobs are available. In order to determine the amount of income to impute, the Court must consider the spouses' recent work history, occupational qualifications, and prevailing earnings in community for the class of jobs available. "In Durand v. Durand, 16 So.3d 982, 985 (Fla. 4th DCA 2009), the Fourth District explained that the 'spouse claiming income should be imputed to the unemployed or underemployed spouse bears the burden of showing both employability and that jobs are available.' In determining the amount of the income to impute, 'the court must consider the spouse's recent work history, his or her occupational qualifications, and the prevailing earnings in the community for that class of available jobs." Andrews v. Andrews.
