Alimony in Palm Beach County, Florida

Alimony - Consideration of Debts in Florida

Trial court must consider all 61.08 factors, including pre-dissolution debts. "We reverse the trial court's award of $1,500 per month in permanent periodic alimony, and $18,000 in retroactive alimony, as we conclude that the trial court's financial analysis was tainted by its failure to properly consider all of the relevant factors pursuant to section 61.08. Specifically, the trial court did not properly consider: each spouse's pre-dissolution debts; the income Dan receives from his Fidelity Magellan Retirement account; and the $7,000 reduction to Ava's annual salary." Byrne v. Byrne.
