In the State of Florida, the supportive relationship statute allows the payor of alimony to have their alimony obligation reduced or terminated if their ex-spouse is in a supportive relationship.
The court shall consider and make written findings of fact regarding all relevant facts and additional factors.
Factor e. to be considered is:
“The extent to which the obligee or the other person has performed valuable services for the other.”
For example, if the other person provides services to the obligee such as managing their finances, babysitting, or making home renovations, these may be considered valuable services.
Whether the other party supports the receiver of alimony or the receiver of alimony supports the other party and it can be shown by presenting evidence, the court may conclude that a supportive relationship exists.
