Clients often ask what happens when someone who is paying alimony wants to retire.

Is their alimony terminated, reduced, or do they have to still keep paying alimony?

One of the laws in Florida regarding retirement requires a judge to look at a lot of factors.

The new law states that a payor of alimony who wants to retire can file a modification approximately six months before they intend to retire.

And what is the judge going to look at?

The judge is going to look at the financial resources of the payor of alimony and the recipient.

How will that retirement affect the payee financially?

What are the motivations for the individual who wants to retire?

What is the customary age in their profession for the age of retirement?

Those are just some of the factors that the court will look at in determining whether it is appropriate for the person to retire at that particular age.
