Is Alimony Automatic?
In Florida, alimony is not automatically awarded when spouses divorce. Rather, the court considers a number of factors to determine if alimony should be awarded, and if so, how much. These include:
- The length of the marriage
- The standard of living during the marriage
- The financial circumstances of each spouse
- The earning capacity of each spouse
- Age and health of each spouse
- Other factors
