How Is Alimony Determined 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
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.
