Will I get alimony after 2 years of marriage but a total of years living together?
I live have been married for 2 years but have been living as a couple with my husband for 14 years prior to our getting married. We own property together and everything has always been co-mingled. If we were to divorce, do they take into consideration the total time living together as well as the married years with regard to alimony? He makes more than I do and my financial situation would change if we were divorced and I see that 2 years in FL isn't typically enough to justify being paid alimony but we have been living a life together for 16 years so is that taken into consideration
Living a life together for 16 years would definitely be taken into consideration, especially if you actually lived together, co-mingled your assets, and held yourselves out in public as a couple. If that's the case, and you lived together for at least seven years in a row, you've got a good case for proving the existence of what is known as a common-law marriage. It may very well be that you've been married in a legal sense for longer than two years.
