Florida Alimony Laws

Alimony is covered under Section 61.08 of the Florida Statutes. In a divorce, a court may grant alimony to either party in the form of bridge-the-gap, rehabilitative, durational, or permanent, or any combination thereof. Alimony is awarded on a case-by-case basis and only after the court considers all relevant factors such as the duration of the marriage, the standard of living established during the marriage, the contributions made by each party, the financial resources of each party, and much more.

Life is constantly changing – that is one thing that can be counted on in family law. People move, they switch jobs, they lose their jobs, they get promotions, they remarry, they get injured, they get ill, and they have more children with new spouses. In the context of alimony modifications, usually the paying party is the one seeking to reduce or terminate their alimony payments and the receiving spouse is the one seeking more alimony.

In many cases, alimony payments can be modified based upon a significant change of circumstances. However, this is not the case with bridge-the-gap alimony, which terminates upon the death of either party or upon the remarriage of the receiving party.

Determining if your alimony payments can be modified or terminated will depend upon what type of alimony was awarded and how significant the changes in circumstances are. For instance, under § 61.4, an award for permanent alimony can be modified or terminated upon a significant change of circumstances or if the receiving party enters into a supportive relationship.
