Facing divorce is frightening, wondering what your new life will look like and how you’ll make ends meet. Transitioning from a dual income household to a single income is incredibly difficult and overwhelming for anyone who endures that situation.
Bridge-the-gap alimony was designed for the specific purpose to assist with this transition. It was designed to assist the wife with short term needs while she establishes her new life after divorce. As you are going through your divorce, you need a legal team you can rely on to advocate on your behalf for spousal support. Our dedicated team of bridge-the-gap alimony lawyers provide compassionate legal service during your time of need.
There are many factors that are considered when determining rehabilitative alimony in Florida. These are a few of the more common contributing factors:
- Standard of living established during the marriage
- Duration of the marriage
- Financial resources
- Earning capability
- Contributions to the marriage
- (Step) Children

Once you are awarded bridge-the-gap alimony, the amount or duration can be modified if there is a justified reason, such as a substantial change in circumstance. However, it is possible to agree to alimony that cannot be modified or changed.
