Types of Alimony in Florida

Florida law provides for five different types of alimony:

  • Temporary alimony
  • Bridge-the-gap alimony
  • Rehabilitative alimony
  • Durational alimony
  • Permanent alimony

Temporary alimony is only available during the divorce process, coming to an end when the divorce is finalized. The other four types of alimony are effective only after divorce, and they vary in duration and focus. A judge will determine which type of alimony to grant to a spouse based on what he or she determines is fair and reasonable under the facts of the case.

How Florida Courts Decide Alimony

Alimony is not granted to everyone who seeks it. The courts consider several factors when deciding to award alimony.

The factors the courts consider include:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • The age of each spouse
  • The physical and emotional condition of each spouse
  • The couple’s available sources of income
  • The need for the spouse seeking alimony to attend additional education or career training to obtain appropriate employment
  • The contributions that each spouse has made to the marriage
  • The marital standard of living
  • The tax consequences of the alimony reward
  • The responsibilities each spouse will have for any minor children of the marriage

The particular circumstances of each couple are also used to determine which type of alimony will be granted. Any type of alimony that is granted is for the purpose of helping one spouse maintain the standard of living established during the marriage, who without the help of the other spouse would be unable to do so.
