Default Florida divorce alimony, child support questions...

Not for me (I am too cheap to get divorced ), but for my wife's girlfriend. She has been married for 25 years, they have a minor 13yo and an adult 22yo daughters. They are part owners of a gun shop and full owners of a landscape company, but other than that she has been a homemaker for most of her life.

I assume that she will get custody of the minor and thus child support. How difficult is it for women to get alimony in Florida if she has been dependent on her husband for all of her adult life?

Thanks in advance for not passing judgment on this unfortunate situation.

Another question best answered by a lawyer, not a boater or fisherman.

I am a Florida Lawyer and yes she can get Alimony as well as equitable distribution of the marital assetts acquired during the course of the marriage, including businesses. He better buckle his seat belt.........

Best to look at it as the screwing he's going to get now for the screwing he got all those years they were married.

The woman is my wife's friend; I know her fairly well but I am not friends with her husband. Don't worry, she is going to get a lawyer and not just rely on the expert advice from the members of this forum. She asked me to ask my attorney friends for a referral for a divorce lawyer. Thanks d-hlaw.
