When is alimony awarded?

There are various forms of alimony and ways that it can be handled by the court. The court will want to look at both sides of the story; the spouse requesting alimony as well as the payer. The alimony award could be in the form of temporary spousal support (rehabilitative), durational alimony, or it could be deemed as permanent alimony.

It can also apply to either husband or wife; it is not gender-specific. Temporary support could later be determined to be the amount of the permanent alimony award, so it is vital to have an experienced and savvy Jacksonville divorce lawyer work with you to help ensure the payments are fair and equitable.

Determining Factors for Spousal Support

There are many factors established under Florida law and considered by the court when awarding spousal support. Some of those are:

  • The standard of living created during the marriage.
  • How long the spouses have been married.
  • The financial resources and income sources of each party. The distribution of assets and liabilities (both marital and non-marital) will be considered here as well.
  • The age of each spouse, as well as the physical and emotional condition.
  • In some cases the educational level of the spouses is also considered, as well as the time required for either spouse to attain an educational or training level sufficient to find gainful employment.

Depending on the circumstances, the court may require the payments to be made all in a lump sum, periodically, or both. The court may also take into consideration any instances of adultery, spousal abuse, or situations related to this when deciding for or against an alimony settlement.
