Permanent & Rehabilitative Alimony in Florida

The remedies employed by the trial court should be viewed as a whole to determine whether they accomplish equity between the parties. "A trial court has broad discretion in determining which remedy to apply to accomplish equity between the parties in a dissolution proceeding. See Canakaris v. Canakaris, 382 So. 2d 1197, 1202 (Fla. 1980). Such remedies include lump sum alimony, permanent periodic alimony, rehabilitative alimony, child support, special equity in property and the award of exclusive possession of property. Id. at 1202. In reviewing an order of dissolution, the remedies employed by the judge to accomplish equity between the parties should be reviewed as a whole since they are 'interrelated' and 'part of one overall scheme.' Id." Sellers v. Sellers
