Determining Alimony in Florida
Alimony, also referred to as spousal support, is determined by the FL courts as part of your divorce proceedings. Spousal support payments are separate from child support payments.
When determining alimony, courts may consider factors including:
- The length of the marriage
- The spouses’ quality of life during the marriage
- Financial holdings and income level of both parties
- Whether or not one spouse was a homemaker
- Each party’s needs
- Each spouse’s ability to pay spousal support
There are several different types of alimony in FL. Sometimes financial support is awarded permanently; in other situations, durational support– which is temporary and generally does not exceed the length of the marriage – is awarded. In some divorce cases, the courts will award temporary support to help one spouse become self-sufficient.
