Jupiter Alimony and Modification of Alimony
Alimony (also called spousal support) is an issue often raised in Florida divorce proceedings, especially in cases where one spouse has been the primary breadwinner and the other has been a full-time homemaker or has worked outside the home only part-time.
Alimony may be temporary or permanent, and there are several types of alimony in Florida:
- Permanent periodic alimony
- Durational alimony
- Nominal alimony
- Lump sum alimony
- Rehabilitative alimony
- Bridge the gap alimony
- Plus possible tax consequences associated with alimony
Alimony can be a complex issue. The Court will consider a number of factors to determine the type and amount of alimony, including:
- length of marriage
- lifestyle during marriage
- education of each spouse
- income of each spouse
- abilities/disabilities of each spouse
