Types of 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:

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

Durational Alimony in Florida

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 in Florida

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 in Florida

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 in Florida

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.
