Awarding and Calculating Alimony in Florida

Per Florida law, there are specific factors that determine whether alimony will be awarded.

There is no specific formula to calculate alimony and the amount may be determined by agreement or by the court. Section 61.08, Florida Statutes, sets forth the factors used for alimony analysis, taking into consideration the lifestyle during the marriage, the duration of the marriage, the need for alimony, and the spouse’s ability to pay.

What Types of Alimony Are There?

In Florida, there are a few different types of alimony.

You may be awarded:

  • Bridge-the-gap alimony to assist in the transition from being married to being single for up to two years.
  • Rehabilitative alimony to assist in redeveloping previous skills or credentials or acquisition of education, training, and work experience to become self-supporting.
  • Durational alimony when permanent alimony is not appropriate, but a period of support is needed for a set amount of time. Durational alimony may be appropriate in short or moderate duration or following a marriage of long duration if there is no ongoing need for support on a permanent basis.
  • Permanent alimony following a marriage of long duration to provide for your needs as they were established during the marriage. This allows a party to meet your needs and necessities of life following divorce.

The court can also award any combination of these types of alimony.
