Alimony In Palm Beach County, Florida

Alimony - Voluntary Payments on Behalf of Children in Florida

Courts ruled that voluntary payments on behalf of children in Florida may not be utilized in calculating amount of the alimony award. "As observed in McLean v. McLean, 652 So. 2d 1178, 1181 (Fla. 2d DCA 1995), absent a contractual agreement between the parties, courts are not authorized to consider 'voluntary payments' to adult children in calculating amounts available to pay support in dissolution proceedings." Quinones v. Quinones. Visit our articles  page for more articles and rulings on Alimony in Florida.
