The Purpose of Alimony

The court may issue a bridge-the-gap, durational, permanent, or rehabilitative alimony order to provide essential financial support to a lower-earning spouse. These payments are calculated according to Florida state laws and can be paid in monthly installments or as a lumpsum amount.

The court evaluates the following concerns before deciding to award alimony:

  • The financial resources of both spouses
  • The present and future earning capacities of both spouses
  • Each spouse’s age, physical condition, and mental health
  • The couple’s standard of living during the marriage
  • The duration of the marriage
  • Which spouse is primarily caring for any shared children
  • The contributions each party made to the marriage

Alimony is intended to help a former spouse transition to single life and a single income. For example, if one spouse is a homemaker without an available source of income, the court may be inclined to issue an alimony order. These payments can help the former spouse pursue a new career or educational opportunities.

Alimony can be terminated or modified under the following conditions:

  • The receiving ex remarries
  • The receiving ex begins living with a new romantic partner
  • The paying spouse faces a lasting change in circumstances
  • One spouse dies

Both the receiving and the paying party can request alimony modifications. Of course, this doesn’t mean that exes can demand more money or stop providing payments. If your alimony order is no longer reasonable, contact the Panama City Beach alimony lawyers at The Virga Law Firm, P.A. We can evaluate your circumstances, collect evidence, and develop an effective argument that can be presented in court. If your case is successful, the court may agree to modify or terminate your existing order.
