Retroactive Alimony - Prejudgment Interest | Lane & Associates

If a party obtains an award of retroactive alimony, that party may also obtain prejudgment interest on the award. "Also, the Wife is entitled to prejudgment interest on the alimony arrearage owed by the Husband. See Burkley v. Burkley, 911 So. 2d 262, 271 (Fla. 5th DCA 2005) ("[T]he court...would err by declining to award prejudgment interest for arrearages. Courts must award prejudgment interest on arrearages found to be due in the final judgment."); see also Miller v. Miller, 679 So. 2d 858, 858 (Fla. 1st DCA 1996) Gremel v. Gremel
