Can a dependent spouse be forced to work in Florida?

A dependent spouse cannot be forced to work in Florida. However, the court can impute income to that dependent spouse. That's where the court pretends that a spouse makes what they could make according to their education, training and experience, of course the job market in the area. When the court imputes income to that party, the court determines a support order based on if that party was actually working and making that money.
