Effective July 1, 2023, permanent alimony is no longer authorized in the state of Florida, and therefore, it is important to know the other types of alimony.
One of the other types of alimony that is important to know is called bridge-the-gap transitional alimony.
The maximum amount of time one can receive bridge-the- gap transitional alimony is two years, and the amount is nonmodifiable.
What are some examples of bridge-the-gap transitional alimony?
Perhaps you need help in renting a new apartment, your first and last month’s rent, and a security deposit.
Perhaps you need help buying furniture or you need help buying a car.
Those are short-term, identifiable financial needs which will help a spouse transition from married life to single life.
If you have any questions about the new laws which have taken effect July 1, 2023, we are happy to help you.
