Durational Alimony in Jacksonville

Becoming Financially Secure After Divorce

In July of 2010, the Florida Legislature passed a new law that addressed changes in 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 and maintenance.

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.
