Effective July 1, 2023, permanent alimony is no longer awarded in the State of Florida.
The law regarding length of marriage has changed as well.
If you’ve been married 20 years or more, it is considered a long-term marriage, and the maximum length of durational alimony that you can receive is 75% of the length of your marriage.
If you’ve been married between 10 and 20 years, it is considered a moderate-term length marriage, and the maximum amount of length of time for durational alimony you can receive is 60% of the length of your marriage.
If you’ve been married for 10 years or less, it is considered a short-term marriage, and the maximum amount of time that you can receive durational alimony is 50% of the length of your marriage.
But if you’ve been married for less than 3 years, you are not eligible for durational alimony.
