Alimony Payments Lawyer Tampa Bay Gary Dolgin Explains Supportive Relationship Factor i.

In the State of Florida, the supportive relationship statute allows the payor of alimony to have their alimony obligation reduced or terminated if their ex-spouse is in a supportive relationship.

The court shall consider and make written findings of fact regarding all relevant facts and additional factors.

Factor i. to be considered is:

“The extent to which the obligee and the other person have an express or implied agreement regarding property sharing or financial support.”

For example, a couple may be living together and have a verbal agreement in which one party contributes to the household expenses while the other covers the mortgage payments.

It may also be that they have discussed and agreed upon saving jointly for future investments such as a vacation or a new car.

In this scenario, their verbal agreements and shared financial responsibilities demonstrate an implied agreement regarding property sharing and financial support, even though they are not legally bound by marriage.
