A business can be one of the most significant assets an individual may own. Florida couples who own one together may be able to take steps to protect it from the effects of a divorce.
In the state of Florida, a court order may require an individual to make spousal support payment in the event of a divorce or legal separation. When the order is made, the court will determine an imputed or actual ability to make those payments. If an individual fails to make payments as ordered, a contempt hearing may be held.
