What is Durational Alimony under Florida Law?

Durational Alimony

We receive a lot of questions about what it takes to qualify for alimony in a Florida divorce. There are a few different types of alimony, one of which is referred to as “Durational” alimony. Under Florida Statute §61.08 (2014), durational alimony may be awarded when permanent periodic alimony is inappropriate.  The purpose of durational alimony is to provide a party with economic assistance for a set period of time following a marriage of short or moderate duration. An award of durational alimony terminates upon the death of either party or upon the remarriage of the party receiving alimony. Durational Alimony is limited by the fact that the duration of the award may not exceed the length of the marriage.
