Types of Florida Alimony

Spousal support / alimony can be ordered on a permanent basis, as a lump sum or for a finite number of installments, and at various intermediate or minimal amounts, depending on the specifics of your case. For example, a financially dependent spouse who can become self-sufficient through subsequent vocational training or completion of a college degree might get rehabilitative alimony to cover living expenses and tuition for a limited period of time.

Other types of alimony that may be awarded in your Florida divorce case include:

  • Bridge-the-gap alimony: The purpose of bridge-the-gap alimony is to help a financially dependent spouse transition from married life to single life, without serious financial impact. It provides a short time (typically less than two years) for the individual to become self-supporting after the completion of the divorce.
  • Durational alimony: Many courts are moving away from awarding permanent or longer duration financial support, particularly for divorce cases involving short- or medium-length marriages unless there are special or exceptional circumstances.
  • In certain long-term marriages, permanent alimony may be considered. The purpose of permanent alimony is to help a dependent spouse, who could not otherwise be self-supporting, maintain the quality of living established during the marriage.

Resolving Alimony Disputes in Negotiation, Mediation or Trial. The need, duration and amount of alimony can also be sensitive to the specifics of the property settlement. We can let you know whether concessions on property issues in exchange for better spousal support — or vice versa — might make sense to you.  The broad discretion of the court in determining alimony issues indicates the logic of resolving these items through negotiation whenever possible. That way, you retain control of the process and don’t have to worry about the court’s consideration of “any other factor” to your disadvantage. At the same time, if a reasonable resolution can’t be reached, we will aggressively litigate your position in a contested hearing or trial.
