Spousal support (alimony) can be one of the most contentious issues in a dissolution of marriage. You may be concerned about how you will support yourself after divorce or how much you may be required to pay for support of your spouse.

In Florida, there are several types of alimony that a court may consider, including:

  • Temporary alimony
  • "Bridge-the-gap" alimony
  • Rehabilitative alimony
  • Durational alimony
  • Permanent alimony

A court will generally look to the need of a spouse for support as well as the ability for the other spouse to provide support. Additionally, a court will consider several other factors, including the standard of living during the marriage, the duration of the marriage and the assets distributed to the parties.
