About Alimony in Florida

In the state of Florida, there are five types of alimony. A judge may award any combination of the five types, depending on the situation.

The five types of Florida alimony are as follows:

  • Permanent alimony – Permanent alimony is intended to help support a former spouse who lacks the ability to become self-supporting. This type of alimony is rarely awarded due to its permanent duration, and a judge must always give reasons for why other types of alimony would be insufficient.
  • Durational alimony – Durational alimony is that which is to be paid for the same amount of time as the length of the marriage. For example, if you were in a marriage for seven years, you cannot receive alimony for longer than that.
  • Rehabilitative alimony – Rehabilitative alimony is intended to help the former spouse acquire the necessary training or education for appropriate employment. The spouse who requests rehabilitative alimony needs to submit a comprehensive plan that outlines how much time and money will be required.
  • Bridge-the-gap alimony – This type of alimony is very short term and is not meant to last for a period longer than two years. The intention of bridge-the-gap alimony is to allow the recipient spouse to meet immediate financial needs, such as living expenses while they wait for their home to be sold.
  • Temporary alimony – Temporary alimony is one of the most common forms of alimony because it only lasts while the divorce is still pending. Once the divorce is made final, the temporary alimony payments stop.
