Rehabilitative Alimony in Florida

Work with a Jacksonville Divorce Lawyer

When you contact a Jacksonville divorce attorney at the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, you will learn that there are six types of alimony that can be awarded under Florida family law; one of which is rehabilitative alimony. This is a temporary type of alimony that is typically awarded to parties who are dissolving a marriage of short to medium length (typically no longer than 17 years).

This type of alimony is usually given in situations where one party needs economically assistance in getting on their feet once more, but the courts do not deem them dependent to the point of needing permanent alimony. In many cases, this type of alimony is awarded to help the receiving party in their efforts of becoming self-sufficient.

When Rehabilitative Alimony is Needed

Just one situation where rehabilitative alimony could be useful is if one party of a marriage may have no source of income, but could be going to school to increase their earning capacity and employment prospects. During this time, the court may deem that it is appropriate to award rehabilitative alimony as the person will not need permanent assistance.

Once they are able to graduate and step forward into a career, they will be self-sufficient and will no longer need the fiscal assistance. In these situations, rehabilitative alimony is ideal and allows for both parties to achieve what they need. This is similar to durational alimony; however, there is a distinct difference in that to achieve this type of alimony, the party requesting payment must present a rehabilitative plan that must be approved.
