In an alimony case that was recently decided by the Florida Court of Appeal the Florida Court of Appeal stated that permanent alimony can be awarded to provide for the recipient's needs, as they were established during the course of the marriage, if the recipient lacks the ability to meet his or her financial needs after the parties are divorced. In Weininger v. Weininger the Florida Court of Appeal stated that in a long-term marriage there is a rebuttable presumption that permanent alimony should be awarded. A long-term marriage is a marriage having a duration of 17 years or more. The party that is seeking an award of alimony has the burden to prove the payor's ability to pay and the payee's financial need.
