Divorce Attorney Tampa Gary Dolgin Explains New Florida Alimony Laws Regarding Rehabilitative Alimony Effective July 1, 2023

In this video, Board Certified Expert in Marital and Family Law, Gary Dolgin explains the new rehabilitative alimony laws that went into effect July 1, 2023.

Permanent alimony is no longer authorized under Florida law, and that makes the other types of alimony even more important to understand.

A very important type of alimony is rehabilitative 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.

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.

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.
