In the context of the State of Florida, Alimony is the financial support provided after a legal divorce or separation by the financially buoyant spouse that is granted to the spouse who has fewer funds, the ability to enter or re-enter the workforce, needs more financial assistance, or the like. There are some specific factors to be considered before the payment of Alimony can be granted which are listed within Florida Statute 61.08. These factors include but are not limited to the living standard created during the marriage, the duration of the marriage, the age and physical and emotional condition of each party, and the financial resources and all sources of income of each party which include non-marital and marital assets. Further factors are the earning capacities, educational levels, employability of the parties, the contribution of each party within the marriage to services such as homemaking, child care education, and career building.
