Durational Alimony in Jacksonville
Becoming Financially Secure After Divorce
In July of 2010, the Florida Legislature passed a new law that addressed
child support and
alimony laws. Per the language of this change in HB 907, this allowed for different
types of alimony that may be awarded in any given divorce case. One of
the types of alimony that is allowed under §61.08 of the Florida
Statutes is that of durational alimony. So what exactly is this type of
alimony? Essentially, this is a temporary version of spousal support payments
Florida's Laws on Durational Alimony
Under Florida law, someone can be awarded durational alimony after having
been in what is deemed a short term (below seven years) or moderate term
marriage (seven to seventeen years). Before this change in the law, people
who had been in a marriage of this length had been barred from receiving
alimony payments. Now, these people are able to achieve a temporary form
of alimony that allows for them to receive short-term financial assistance
until they are able to get on their feet once more.
