Orlando Alimony Attorney
When is Alimony Granted in Florida?
The granting of alimony is not automatic under Florida law. The party seeking alimony must be able to prove to the court that it is justified and that his or her spouse has the financial ability to pay. Alimony can be requested by husbands as well as wives. Different types of alimony exist but will only be granted after the court reviews all of the evidence and considers various factors.
The types of alimony include:
- Temporary: paid while a divorce is ongoing
- Bridge-the-gap: given to one party for short-term needs to help him or her transition to single life
- Rehabilitative: given for education, training, or job experience so as to become self-supporting
- Durational: paid for a defined length of time up to the duration of the marriage
- Permanent: for marriages that lasted 17 years or more to enable the party to maintain the standard of living enjoyed during the marriage
In order to decide whether alimony is appropriate, the court will look at such factors as how long the marriage lasted, the ages and health of the parties, their earning capacity, financial resources, the standard of living they maintained while married, and other relevant issues.
