There are several forms of alimony depending on one's unique circumstances. The moving party must show their need for this financial assistance and the other party's ability to pay this financial assistance. The statute now defines term marriage as 0-7 years is short term, 8-16 years as mid term and anything over 17 years as long term. Durational (temporary) alimony has now been enacted by Florida Statutes and cannot be paid over any time frame longer than the term of the marriage. Alimony is a taxable event for the person receiving this financial support and should be factored when implementing a final agreement.
Rehabilitative Alimony is another form of alimony and can be beneficial to a party who has been the homemaker to assist their spouse with upward movement in their career by taking the responsibility of the care of the minor children, the household and helpmate.
