Significant changes to alimony laws have gone into effect in Florida, effective July 1, 2023.
Permanent alimony is no longer authorized in the state of Florida, so it is important to know about the other types of alimony such as durational alimony, bridge-the-gap transitional alimony, rehabilitative alimony and temporary alimony.
Under Florida’s new alimony law, the maximum amount of time that you can receive rehabilitative alimony is for five years, and there is no 35% cap, as there is in durational alimony.
Rehabilitative alimony comes into play if you’ve been out of the workforce for many years and you want to go back to college or further your education so that you can become self-supporting.
In durational alimony, the amount determined to be the obligee’s reasonable need, or an amount not to exceed 35 percent of the difference between the parties’ net incomes, whichever amount is less.
