In Florida, there are different forms of alimony, permanent alimony is designed to provide financial assistance to a dependent spouse permanently. This type of alimony is very typical, especially if the marriage was long term.
There are many factors that are considered when determining permanent 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
