Florida Law Concerning Alimony

In awarding alimony, some of the statutory factors that Florida Courts consider are:

  1. whether the recipient has an actual need for alimony, and whether the payor has the ability to pay alimony
  2. the standard of living that was established by the parties during their marriage
  3. the duration of the parties’ marriage
  4. the age of each of the parties, and their physical and emotional condition
  5. each party’s financial resources, including their marital and nonmarital and assets and liabilities
  6. 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
  7. each party’s contribution to the marriage, including, without limitation, services rendered in childcare, education, homemaking, and career building
  8. each of the party’s responsibilities for their minor children after the conclusion of the dissolution proceedings
  9. the tax consequences to both of the parties of the alimony award
  10. all sources of income available to either of the parties
  11. any other factor that the court finds to be necessary to accomplish a fair and equitable result
