Alimony Attorney Tampa Gary Dolgin Explains That Permanent Alimony Is No Longer Awarded in Florida Effective July 1, 2023

Effective July 1, 2023, permanent alimony is no longer awarded in the State of Florida.

Judges in Florida no longer have the authority to award permanent periodic alimony.

Permanent alimony that was agreed upon or ordered by a judge and awarded prior to July 1, 2023 remains in full force and is unaffected by the new alimony laws.

The court shall make written findings of fact regarding the basis for awarding a form or any combination of forms of alimony, including the type of alimony and the length of time for which the alimony is awarded.

The court may award a combination of forms of alimony or forms of payment, including lump sum payments, to provide greater economic assistance in order to allow the obligee to achieve self-support.
