In awarding alimony, some of the statutory factors that Florida Courts consider are:
- whether the recipient has an actual need for alimony, and whether the payor has the ability to pay alimony
- the standard of living that was established by the parties during their marriage
- the duration of the parties’ marriage
- the age of each of the parties, and their physical and emotional condition
- each party’s financial resources, including their marital and nonmarital and assets and liabilities
- each of the party’s earning capacities, and, if applicable, the time required for either of the parties to acquire sufficient training and education to find appropriate employment
- each party’s contribution to the marriage, including, without limitation, services rendered in childcare, education, homemaking, and career building
- each of the party’s responsibilities for their minor children after the conclusion of the dissolution proceedings
- the tax consequences to both of the parties of the alimony award
- all sources of income available to either of the parties
- any other factor that the court finds to be necessary to accomplish a fair and equitable result
