Florida Law on Temporary Alimony

When divorce proceedings are pending, one party needs enough money to cover their necessary expenses for living and to pursue or maintain a divorce action. Temporary alimony is different from permanent alimony because the latter involves periodic payments after the court renders a final divorce decree. In contrast, temporary alimony is awarded during the pendency of divorce proceedings. Thus, temporary alimony is also called “alimony pendent lite” or “alimony ad interim.”

The following determinations must support an award for temporary alimony:

  • The spouse seeking temporary alimony has a necessity for an alimony award due to lack of sufficient means to support themselves during litigation; and
  • The other spouse has the ability to provide the necessary financial assistance.

Ex Parte Alimony

Typically, divorce issues are heard by the court with both parties present to argue their respective positions. However, some situations justify emergency action from the court. Circumstances such as abandonment by the supporting spouse or a clear pecuniary disparity between the parties at the point of separation can warrant a temporary court order based only on one party’s allegations.
