Alimony - Findings of Fact Regarding Short Term Marriage in Florida

In awarding alimony, a trial court must make findings of fact for each factor, even if alimony is denied. "Here, the court simply denied the Former Wife's request for alimony because the Former Husband was going to make an equalizing payment and this was a short-term marriage. However, the trial court did not address all of the appropriate factors required by the 2009 statute." Witt v. Witt.
