Different Types of Spousal Support in Florida

The state of Florida has five types of spousal support for divorcing spouses. A judge will review several factors in your case to determine if and what type of spousal support should be awarded.

Below are the five main types of spousal support:

  • Temporary support
  • Bridge-the-gap support
  • Rehabilitative support
  • Durational support
  • Permanent support

Permanent support is rarely awarded and is generally designed for spouses who will need financial assistance and cannot become self-sufficient in the future. For example, if the supported spouse becomes disabled, is significantly old, or providing for a child with special needs, permanent spousal support may be awarded.

Determining Spousal Support

A judge will examine a wide range of factors when reviewing your spousal support case.

Below is a list of some of these factors:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The standard of living the couple enjoyed
  • The physical and emotional health of each spouse
  • The economic and non-economic contributions of each spouse to the marriage
  • Each spouse’s assets and property
  • If either spouse has minor children under their care
  • Each spouse’s sources of income
  • Other factors a judge might deem pertinent
