Florida Alimony Law

There are different types of spousal support in the state of Florida. Our knowledgeable alimony attorney in Clearwater can assist you in determining which type of alimony is relevant to your case. There is transitional alimony, which is given to a spouse while waiting for the divorce to be finalized. The other is durational alimony, which is granted for a length of time that can be no longer than the length of the marriage.

One spouse may want to complete an education or training program in order to be more marketable for employment, in which case rehabilitative alimony is granted. Lump sum alimony is given from the profits of property sales. Temporary alimony, on the other hand, is given during divorce proceedings and is not permanent, while permanent alimony is typically saved for marriages over 17 years.

There are several factors the Florida courts will consider when awarding spousal support, including:

  • The earning capabilities for both spouses
  • The length of the marriage
  • Conditions of living during the marriage
  • Finances of both spouses
  • Age of both spouses
  • Emotional and physical state of both spouses
  • The role of each spouse in the marriage including raising children and support for career advancement
