A Florida judge can grant alimony to both men and women by evaluating the marriage and income of both parties. A judge will also review the marital standard of living and the duration of the marriage as well as each spouse's age, health and marriage contributions. The payment amount and length are dependent on the judge's discretion and the legal guidelines.
In Florida, there are six types of alimony payments:
Temporary alimony: A person generally receives these payments while filing for divorce until the divorce is finalized.
Bridge-the-gap alimony: This temporary alimony gives a person money for their short-term needs. It cannot last for more than two years.
Rehabilitative alimony: This form of alimony provides money for a set time so that a person can gain training or education to become self-sufficient.
Lump-sum alimony: This is a one-time alimony payment from one spouse to the other.
Durational alimony: A former spouse will pay this form of alimony for a set time, up to the length of the marriage.
Permanent periodic alimony: This is a lifelong form of alimony that does not end until one spouse dies; the receiving spouse remarries or if there is a modification.
