Transitional Alimony

What is Transitional Alimony?

Need help? Call Our Jacksonville Divorce Lawyer!

Normally alimony is awarded on a month to month basis until the time limit runs out, the receiving spouse remarries, or the supporter passes away. For shorter marriages, extended alimony is not usually awarded. However, you may be able to obtain transitional alimony to help ease you through the upcoming financial changes. Reach out to a Jacksonville divorce attorney from Hutchinson Law to determine if you qualify for transitional alimony!

We understand the challenges couples face when going through a divorce, which is why we are here to ensure that those who needs alimony are able to obtain it. In the past decade, Hutchinson Law has been helping individuals dissolve their marriages and agree upon alimony provisions that provide much needed resources for the previously dependent spouse.

Who Qualifies for Transitional Alimony?

The purpose of transitional alimony is to get a person back on their feet following a divorce, especially spouses that were completely dependent on the other's income. Transitional alimony is mean to ensure one spouse does not face undue financial hardship just because they don't qualify for permanent periodic alimony.

Courts can award transitional alimony for the purpose of:

  • Paying first and last month's rent on a new apartment
  • Making a down payment on a house
  • Hiring a moving company to take furniture to a new residence
  • Purchasing furniture for a new apartment or home
  • Getting started in a new location

Courts can determine whether a spouse qualifies by looking at the marital and non-marital assets of each spouse at the time of the divorce and each spouse's monthly income. Courts will consider the amount of sacrifice the dependent spouse went through, such as giving up certain jobs, property, or educational opportunities.

Your marriage may have been too short for standard alimony, but our Jacksonville family lawyers can work with you to determine if transitional alimony is right for your case.
