When is Spousal Support or Alimony Awarded in Florida?

A court may consider alimony in any divorce case. Florida courts are permitted to consider: whether adultery occurred during marriage and the circumstances of that adultery; the standard of living established during marriage; the duration of the marriage; the age, physical and emotional condition of each party; the financial resources of each party; the time it would take each party to get the required education or training to become employed; the contribution of each spouse to the marriage including financial contributions, child rearing, education and career building of the other spouse and; all sources of income for both parties. (Florida Statutes Title VI, Chapter 61, Section 61.08)
