We have helped both men and women with their alimony or spousal support

There are several general types of alimony awarded in Florida:
Permanent alimony - may be awarded to the spouse with less income earning ability if the
marriage was determined by the court to be a long-term marriage
Durational alimony - spousal support that may be available following a short or moderate length
marriage and awarded to a spouse with less earning capacity for a set
period, not longer than the length of the marriage
Bridge-the-gap alimony - a tapering amount or short-term (six months to five years) amount of
alimony to allow someone the time to get back on their financial feet
Rehabilitative alimony - spousal support for someone who has a career plan for education or training
for a new profession or job
Temporary alimony, nominal alimony or lump sum alimony may also be appropriate
forms of support for individuals following divorce.
In general, the payee may lose alimony if he or she re-marries or co-habitats
with a new partner, or if there is any other significant change in circumstances
for either party that would warrant a modification.
