Types of Alimony
There are a few types of alimony that can be awarded:
- Temporary: This type of alimony is usually awarded quickly and is meant to serve as an immediate solution for a needy spouse. It is replaced eventually by another type of alimony or once the divorce decree is rendered.
- Bridge the Gap: As a way to assist a spouse in transitioning from part of a marriage to being a single individual, this type of alimony is meant to help with that change.
- Rehabilitative: Similar to the previous form, this type of alimony is to help one spouse establish a career or new position in life that will lend them the ability to financially care for themselves.
- Durational: Usually applicable in the case of a shorter marriage, this type of alimony is assigned for a specific length of time. The length of time is determined based on how long the couple was married, and is a set amount.
Permanent: This is awarded to a spouse that was married for a moderate to long period of time, and is unable to provide for themselves in the manner they’ve grown accustomed. This amount can be adjusted depending on future choices of the awarded spouse, such as remarriage.

There have been many changes to spousal support laws over the last several years in Florida. The statutes were recently amended to allow a former spouse to seek reductions or eliminations in alimony obligations, because the other spouse entered into a financially supportive relationship. The spouse with the new financial support doesn’t have to necessarily be cohabiting with another person to be considered as receiving financial assistance from another person. These new standards must be well understood by your attorney, so your alimony decision is fair and comprehensive. That Jacksonville Divorce Attorney, A. Sam Jubran understands each and every change made to the current alimony statutes and can make sure to protect your rights within those parameters.
