Do I Qualify for Rehabilitative Alimony?

Get Advice from a Jacksonville Divorce Attorney

Alimony can be ordered for several different reasons in a divorce agreement, but is primarily awarded to cover living expenses for a previously dependent spouse for a certain length of time. Rehabilitative alimony is meant to provide funds for education or obtaining training to help a dependent spouse acquire a job.

How does rehabilitative alimony work?

Rehabilitative alimony is utilized by courts to provide a spouse with financial support for a limited time while they increase their earning capacity. To obtain rehabilitative alimony, the spouse seeking it needs to show the court evidence of a valid rehabilitative plan.

Rehabilitative alimony is changeable after it is ordered and can be modified if:

  • Either party breaks the rehabilitation plan
  • When the plan is completed
  • Death of the party receiving the alimony

If a modification is needed, you should file a motion to modify the alimony and obtain a court order it has been modified or ended. If a spouse fails to pay the court ordered alimony, a receiving spouse may need to take legal action.

Courts respond positively to a well thought out and solid rehabilitation plan, which is why having a seasoned attorney help you craft one can be extremely valuable. A plan should specify how the individual will pursue a degree or proficiency in a skill area on their way to becoming financially self-sufficient.

If you are looking to obtain rehabilitative alimony, you should contact a Jacksonville divorce lawyer to discuss your plan and determine the next best step.
